Norma May Day let go of life at 83 in Dillon, MT on Saturday, July 25th. She died of natural causes. Norma was born in Dickenson, ND on May 12th, 1932. She was the daughter of Anna and AJ Thomas. Norma grew up in Williston, ND until attending college at St. Teresa’s in Winona, MN. She graduated 1953 with a BA in Education. After graduating from college and taking her first teaching position, she met a wonderful man named James Neland Day. They were married on July 10th, 1956. Norma and Jim settled in Cortez, CO and gave birth to their first three children, Mary Pat, Tom and Anne. They later relocated to Billings, MT and extended the family with Mike and Teri. Norma and Jim moved to Dillon in 1976 where she immediately became involved in the community with Meals on Wheels. Norma kept herself busy with raising five children and all their activities. She was often seen driving the pick up with horse trailer in tow to many of Teri’s horse adventures. She raised more than just her own children, welcoming many foreign exchange students into their home. Norma continued to keep herself busy in the community after her children spread their wings. She was the volunteer coordinator at Barrett Memorial Hospital for over 25 years. She is remembered as a mean bridge player who took no prisoners. Norma was often referred to endearingly by her husband Jim as “Chief”. As time continued on Norma became a grandmother and was smothered by the love of her three grandchildren, Spencer, Josh and Haven. She had recently returned from visiting them in CO. Norma will be deeply missed by her loving children, grandchildren and many close friends. A mass will be celebrated on Monday, August 3rd at St. Rose of Lima at 12:10am. A celebration of her life will follow the burial at the St. Rose Parish Center. In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation be made Norma’s name to the Barrett Memorial Hospital Foundation.
