When she was quite young, the family moved to Edwardsville where she attended Edwardsville Elementary and Junior High School. After the death of her father, Norma and her mother returned to Carlinville. Norma graduated from the Carlinville Community High School with the class of 1945.
Norma met Andrew “Andy” Schroeder shortly after he returned from the service in Europe during World War II. It was love at first sight and after a whirlwind courtship, they were married on October 30, 1946, in Edwardsville. They became the parents of two sons, Drew and Kurt.
Norma was a “stay at home” wife and mother, a career she often said she loved.
