Norma Jean Martin Conner, 75 of Copper Hill went home peacefully on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 to be with her Savior and rejoice in His presence.

More recently, she had attended Victory Restoration Church, where she enjoyed the fellowship and teachings of Christ. Norma loved the Lord with her heart, mind and soul. She enjoyed attending church and when the pandemic hit, continued to attend virtually and would often listen to multiple sermons on Sundays. She worked in retail for many years at Hill's Department Store, making many friends along the way.
She is now rejoicing to be reunited with those who've gone before her including her mom and dad, Frances and Elvin Martin; and a brother, Frank E. Martin.
