She attended Roche-a-Cri grade school, Pardeeville grade school, AF High School and Muskego High School. Norma proudly earned her GED in 1988. Norma met Richard G. Cekan at the Adams County Fair in 1967 and began their journey together. They were married on December 2, 1967 after just 6 weeks of dating. This marriage was blessed with 3 fabulous children. Norma was a stay at home mom while Richard worked for the railroad. She then worked as a waitress and also worked at Farnam in Necedah, WI. The most notable and proud time in her career was working as a caseworker as well as a child visitation supervisor with the Department of Health and Human Services.
