Norma Jo Womack, 83, of Kanab, Utah, relinquished her resolve to health complications and passed away in her own home, late Friday, February 7, 2020.
In the latter of her daily life and final hours, she was comforted and cared for by close friends from her congregation in the 2nd ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including additional dear friends and services within and outside the community.
As a 16 year resident of Kanab, (known for her wit, humor, provoking conversations, knowledge on a broad range of topics, and participation with civic matters and social activities organizations), Norma has touched and helped so many with her compassion and generosity. Consequently, during her own struggle with declining independence, she humbly received the same generous support and compassionate care from others, “as you sow, so shall you reap”, as her greatest quality was love of humanity. Norma will be missed and remembered by so many.
Norma was born in Beatrice, Nebraska September 17, 1937, the eldest daughter of Herbert Frohn and Mabel (Miller) Frohn. After High School, Norma was educated first as a lab technician at Wayne State University, MI. Afterward, determined to work closer with people, she became an NA, CNA, LPN, both in private and professional service. In 1990 she returned to college and in 2 yrs. achieved 2 degrees, one as a “Registered Nurse”, and the other as a “Nurse Associate”. She re-entered the work force, working with elderly care, later to become a Teacher/Instructor for Licensed Nurses.
Norma is the Dear Mother to her only child Jerry Montanbault and his wife Jeanene, beloved sisters Ardeth Alcorn, Donna Doyscher, brother-In-law Raymond Doyscher, 1 nephew, and 2 nieces.
