Norma was born July 1, 1932, in Leigh, Nebraska to Julius and Tillie (Jonas) Littelman. She graduated from Leigh High School and attended Nursing School at the University of Nebraska in Omaha. On August 17, 1954, she married John J. "Jerry" Dufek at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Schuyler. They lived in California from 1955-1957 while Jerry was serving in the United States Navy. Together with Jerry's brother Adolph, they owned and operated the Schuyler Meat Market until 1971 when they opened the Jack and Jill grocery store, which they ran until retiring. Following "retirement" from the grocery store, Norma worked for 10 years at Slosberg Realty in Omaha. She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church, loved playing cards and was an avid bowler and golfer.
