Norma Arlene Jacobson was born January 3, 1934, to Lawrence and Ruby A. (Russell) Jacobson. She passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2024, at the age of 90.

Norma grew up with 3 brothers and 1 sister, attending rural country schools, and graduated from Menlo High School in 1952.

She was united in marriage to Dale LeRoy Finck on November 14, 1951. To this union, three children were born: Jim, Gary and Sherri. 

After graduation, Norma worked as a bookkeeper at numerous local businesses. She retired from her job of many years at Schildberg’s car dealership in 1996. She also served as bookkeeper for her husband’s business in her spare time.

Norma’s volunteer work included being a Boy Scout Den Mother when her boys were young and served as Secretary/Treasurer for the Adair County Reserves from 1977-2004.

Dale and Norma enjoyed dancing at various locations around southwest Iowa for many, many years. They also loved to camp in the many campgrounds around the area. In addition to dancing and camping, Norma enjoyed gardening, sewing, playing cards and games, spending time with her grandchildren, and always baking pies for Dale! She was a member of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Fontanelle, and the Greenfield Quilters’ Guild. She and Dale were married for over 65 years.

After retirement, Norma opened a quilting business so she could spend time doing what she loved - quilting. She continued with her business until her eyesight limited most activities.
