Norma was baptized and joined Oak Grove Presbyterian Church in Amelia, Virginia. She later became a member of Woodville Presbyterian Church in 2009, where she served as a Deacon, member of the decorating committee and choir. Shortly after graduating from Amelia County High School in 1979, she was employed by Dominion Virginia Power, where she worked for over thirty years.
A devoted mother, Norma loved to travel with her family and friends, have cookouts, and watch her favorite TV show, Law and Order and any show on the Investigation Discovery Channel. But, her first love was spending time with her one and only granddaughter Yasmine, whom she adored.

She leaves to cherish her memories one son, Michael Johnson, daughter Wendy Johnson, granddaughter Yasmine Johnson, mother Sophia Hackney, brother Curtis Hackney, sisters Shirley Hackney, Robin Slye (Charles), Terry Fuller (Bernard), Crystal Smith (Jerry), Daner Capel (Acie); a host of nieces, nephews and a devoted friend Virginia Hyde.
