Norma was predeceased by her beloved daughter, Pam McClelland, and her dear husband, Arthur A. Schupp, whom she married in 1946.

Norma enjoyed life: her family, friends, church, traveling, playing bridge and teaching. Norma was the classic working mother before it was accepted. In the early 1960’s, while her kids were young, she took a full load of classes at UCM, driving 120 miles every day. She earned an undergraduate teaching degree and 2 graduate degrees. Norma was a devoted and passionate 5th grade teacher at Meadowbrook Grade School until retirement. Many of her students considered Mrs. Schupp their favorite teacher. Education was always very important to Norma, a value she instilled in her children.

Mrs. Schupp saw my potential in 5th grade--invited me and a couple others to her house for extra help that summer and moved me out of the lower level reading group! Forever grateful!! She was definitely a inspiration for me and my 30 years as a teacher!! Thank you, Mrs. Schupp!!!
