Norma was a housewife who had 8 children (one of whom died soon after birth). She was born in New Waterford (Fairfield Township), Columbiana Co., OH and, I think, lived there until her marriage to Edward R. Cope on 6 Jun 1906. I haven't yet found where they met. He was a farmer's son living in Unity Township, Columbiana Co., Ohio. They married in Columbiana Co., Ohio.

They lived all their marriage in Columbiana County: first in Fairfield Township, then in the town of Columbiana, and finally in New Waterford (Unity Township). From family stories it appears she had learned to play the piano and had a nice singing voice. She taught at least one of her daughters how to play.

She died on 26 Oct 1938 from Pancreatic cancer while receiving care at the Salem Hospital in Salem, Ohio. She was only 57 years old. She was buried on 30 Oct 1938 in the New Waterford Cemetery, New Waterford, Ohio.

Children: Eleanor May, Ada Margaret, Mary J, William Franklin, Byron Donbart, Edward Kenneth, Jay W., and Betty Jane.
