Norma Clara was born February 2, 1927 to Charles Sr. and Clara (Knippling) Boyle on the family farm near Elma, IA. She attended country school and graduated from Immaculate Conception School in Elma. On June 27, 1944, Norma was united in marriage to Garland Buckley at Immaculate Conception Church. Together, the couple farmed in the Elma area all of their married years.

Norma was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Pro Life supporter, and “Our Evening Out” through Howard County Extension Office. She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, farming and conservation. She had an artistic flair for sewing, crocheting, and quilting. Her dog, Oskar, was her faithful companion in her later years. Her family was her pride and joy!
