            Norma A Fisher was born to David and Mazie Egbert on Jan 10, 1928, in the Ten Sleep area (poss. Big Trails), the third and last daughter.   The family moved soon after to Ten Sleep where she was schooled and graduated from Ten Sleep High School in 1945 as salutatorian receiving a 4- year scholarship to the University of Wyoming.  She was exceptionally gifted as a musician, an accomplished pianist (both by script and by sound) and vocalist.  Norma accompanied High School Glee Club, performed for  Baccalaureates, Commencements, Church and other social events in the town.  Following graduation, she was employed by the County Courthouse in the capacity of a secretary-typist.  Later she moved to Denver, CO, where she met and married Ken Fisher (ca. 1948) and bore three sons (David, Daniel and Brian Fisher ) before she was injured in a car accident in the mountains above Denver.  As a result, a brain tumor formed which was surgically removed, but she needed constant care, could not speak and was confined to her bed.  Because of her infirmities, she was sent to live with her sister Eunice Ione Egbert Duncan in Tremonton, UT.  She died in Tremonton in July 20, 1973.  She was preceded in death by her sister Doris Eileen Egbert and her father David Egbert.   Her passing at the age of 45 was mourned by all who knew her.

 

Memories:  Norma was tall and had flaming red hair and brown eyes.  She was an avid reader, a librarian at Washakie County Library branch in Ten Sleep for a time, always in 4-H and Girl Scouts, Song Leader in Pep Club and so on!
