Norma was born to Wilfred and Ardith Thompson in Eugene, Oregon on April 19, 1926 and passed away peacefully on February 11, 2020 at the age of 93. She has no siblings.  Norma is survived by her only daughter, Debra Oakes of Muskegon, 5 grandchildren and 5 greatgrandchildren.  Norma was married to Kenneth Stubsten till his death in 1953, then married Anthony Casper Jr who preceded her in death in 2009.

Her primary occupation included various stages of banking and retired from accounting from a research company. Norma had the opportunity to live in many US states including Michigan, Oregon, California, Florida, South Dakota, Ohio, Virginia and also lived in Germany for a period of 3 years.  Norma had been active in many organizations including Porcelain Artists Guild of California, Red Hat Ladies, Right to Life of Central California, La Comida Guild of Fresno, Ca.  She also won many awards for entries of table place settings and flower arrangements over several years submitted to the great Fresno County Fair.  She was known throughout Fresno, Ca, for her ability to decorate homes for Christmas.  She would auction off decorated Christmas trees and set them up in homes.  She would give classes on gift wrapping.

The family would like to give a very special thanks to the love and care given to her during her stay at The Hume Home of Muskegon and The Hospice of Michigan. Also for all the compassion and above and beyond care given to her.

For enjoyment Norma loved to paint and cruise.

Internment only will take place at the San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery, Santa Nella, Ca. She will be placed with her beloved husband Anthony Casper Jr.

She lived to consume as much Chinese food as possible and vanilla ice cream. If you knew her go have a meal of Chinese food and reminisce.
