At the age of fifteen, Norma Bernice Crann met her soulmate and life-long partner, Edward Jones Sr., who was in the Air Force at the time. They were married and moved to Tennessee and then to Morgan City, and so began her life-long adventure. They started a family and she kept her promise to her father, that whenever a grandchild was born, she would make the trip home to Canada for them to meet their grandchild.
A strong believer of raising her children and family, she loved cooking, sewing, fishing and even picking blackberries.
In 1968, Norma, Edward and their children moved to Nigeria, Africa and embraced another big adventure, knowing one day they would move back to Morgan City. Norma loved helping in the flower shop her son opened in 1982, and worked there for 38 years. She enjoyed Mardi Gras Balls and making flower arrangements whenever she could. Getting to see old friends and family, and making new friends as well. Even after she retired, she would always ask who came by the shop that day to visit her. After her husband's passing, Norma enjoyed spending time with the ECW ladies and helping with the activities there whenever she could.
