Norma lived most of her life (62 years) at the big house on Lincoln Court in Davenport where she enjoyed sitting on the porch, yardwork, gardening, tending to her fish pond and watching her dogs. Her yearly Christmas trees were looked forward to by many. From the mid 60’s to 1982 you would find her camping at Shady Creek along the Mississippi River. She never did drive but she would gladly have a cigarette with anyone. Norma made many friends and helped many elderly Davenport residents in her nursing and activities director career at The Kahl Home and the Good Samaritan Society where she worked until she was 85. She was fortunate to have been cared for by her daughter Christine Clark and son-in-law Roger Demarest until she was moved into Good Samaritan as a resident.
Norma is survived by sons: Lawrence (Carol) Clark, Durant, and Daniel Clark, Davenport; son-in-law, Roger Demarest, Davenport; 12 grandchildren 35 great-grandchildren; and 14 great-great grandchildren.
In addition to her husband, Boyd, she was preceded in death by her two daughters: Kimberly Schumann Daniels in 2006 and Christine Clark in 2020, as well as her siblings: Jim and Fred Venable, and a sister Merle Perlenfein.
