She was very active in school, playing clarinet and tennis, and graduating from Beaver High School before moving to Price, Utah, where she met her future husband, Ross Samuel Fazzio. It was love at first dance as they both loved doing jitterbug. They married on July 23, 1949 and were married for 51 years. Norma was a full-time housewife who raised three daughters. A talented gardener in both landscaping and vegetable gardening, she maintained a beautiful, comfortable home for her family.
