What support1 What dedication in preserving Sanpete history What a legacy she has left in her writing Many of her entries were stories about Indians. Others were remembrances of her father and the incidents he told her. She had a great desire to preserve these precious tales of the past. Every year she did the intensive research needed to make those stories authentic and real She contacted numerous individuals, consulted information in libraries and elsewhere to accurately document her writing She was devoted to the success of the Saga In addition to writing each year, she served on the committee to organize and prepare entries to be judged. She sold books at the County Fair, helped with the collating and stapling of the early volumes Wherever there was a need to help Norma was ready and witling. Her writing reflected the inner beauty that was hers, her compassion, caring for others She went beneath the surface to deep thoughts and feelings with a strong desire for right and justice, equality among men. She was ever an advocate of men who did not receive the needed recognition. 1
