Casper, Wyoming / February 23, 2018
Early Friday morning, February 23, 2018, Joan Marie Norman, 81, passed away to be with Jesus, her Lord and Savior.
Visitation is scheduled for Thursday, March 1 from 5-7 P.M. at Bustard’s Funeral Home. Services will be held at Mountain View Baptist Church, Friday, March 2 at 11:00 A.M. with a celebratory fellowship following.
Joan’s passion for Jesus propelled her to tell anyone she met about Jesus. While strolling along the riverside or walking the mall with her late husband, Jim Norman, she would not hesitate to greet a total stranger asking if they knew Jesus as their personal Savior. She always had a tract to hand out wherever she went. Joan was not afraid to spread the Good News.
Joan was involved in many activities and groups namely: United Indian Missions, Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), Youth for Christ, Good News Clubs, 5-Day Clubs, True Care, and Vacation Bible School. She and Jim volunteered at the Salvation Army during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Joan was an Election Judge at Westwood Elementary School, Girl Scouts, and involved with the Wyoming Medical Center Auxiliary.
Preceded in death was her spouse of 63 years, James Norman (2017); brother, Clyde L. Miller, Jr. of Oklahoma City, OK (2017); parents, Clyde (1984) and Florence (Dieter) Miller (1971); nephew, Adam C. Miller of Cheyenne, WY (2015); and sister-in-law, June Knobel (2011) of Casper, WY.
Remaining to celebrate Joan’s life is her brother, David L. Miller and spouse, Loretta; niece, Anthea Miller White (Cade) of Erie, CO; sister-in-law, Claudine Miller; niece, Karen Miller Flesher and husband, Richard; nephew, Randy Miller and wife, Janice; all residing in Oklahoma City, OK; and brother-in-law, Don Knobel; his children, Donna Mathina, Tom Knobel (Beverly), and Kenny Knobel (Cheryl). Many friends from Casper to Australia remain to celebrate her life.

Bustard’s Funeral Home is handling all arrangements.
Throughout her life and her encounter with cancer, Joan will be remembered for her smile, optimism, and being a prayer warrior.
