Norma Marie Bird was born on March 3, 1956 at Bay City, Mich., to William and Norma Jean (Boag) Bird. She attended school at Bay City and graduated from John Glenn High School in 1975.
In 1980, Norma moved to Woodward and began working in some of the area nursing homes as a housekeeper. After having a stroke in 2004, she was forced to end her career as a housekeeper at the Mooreland Heritage Manor. Norma then entered the Heritage Manor where she lived until her death.
She was an avid collector of all types of bells and owls. Her family was so very special to her, especially her nieces and nephews. Even though she never married or had children of her own, the love she gave and received from her nieces and nephews was so very unique. Her memory will always be cherished. Norma attended St. John's Episcopal Church of Woodward.
