Norma Boehme Howard left this earthly life on her birthday, April 15, 2021; she was 89 years old. She was much loved as daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Norma was born April 15, 1932 in Geneva, Idaho to Frederick Boehme and Etta May Tueller Boehme. She attended LDS Business School and BYU. Norma married her sweetheart, Robert Louis Howard December 31, 1954. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple, March 1956. Norma worked for United Airlines as a secretary until she became a fulltime mother. Norma returned to work as a Chapter One Teachers Aide at Stansbury Elementary School after her children were raised.
Norma’s greatest joy was her family. She loved spoiling her grandkids, talking on the phone, shopping, Fernwood chocolates, lunch at Chick-fil-A, chocolate eclairs and collecting hugs.
Norma was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many positions in the Relief Society, Primary and as a Ward Missionary (her favorite). She also enjoyed attending the temple.
