Norma was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Robert J. Ullrich, whom she married in 1960, and who died February 1, 2016; and her parents, Harry and Margaret, nee Kraus, Nagel.

Surviving are two daughters, Lynn (John) Budde, and Lauren (David) Frerichs;
four grandchildren, Alyssa (Cole) Kaemmerer, Lindsay (Patrick) Beeler, Michael Frerichs, and Ryan Frerichs;
a great-granddaughter, Piper Beeler;
and a sister-in-law, Marianne Swick.
