Norma Jean Brandt was born October 21, 1934 in West Point to Curtis and Anna (Prawitz) Brandt. She grew up in West Point and graduated from West Point High School in 1952. Norma married Jerry Wortman and the couple later divorced. She had many jobs throughout her life including working at the local western store and Grain States Soya.
Norma was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. She enjoyed crafting – especially painting and ceramics. One of her favorite pastimes was traveling to Arizona with friends to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. She treasured her family and was enamored by her grandchildren. Norma’s quick wit and sense of humor will be remembered by all who knew her.
