Norma was born in Syracuse, Kansas, on January 18, 1937, the daughter of Myron and Lorena (Burrell) Davidson. She graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Falls City, Nebraska in 1955. After graduation, she joined the United States Air Force and took basic training at San Antonio, Texas. From there, Norma went to West Palm Beach, Florida for flight hostess training. After completion of training, she was sent to McGuire Air Force Base in Trenton, New Jersey. She made flights to Iceland, Greenland, Scotland, and France. In 1956, she received a medical discharge for a back injury that prevented her from performing her duties as a flight attendant. After her discharge, Norma came to Boone to visit relatives, where she met Franklin "Frank" Adreon and later they married on June 3, 1957, at the Sacred Heart Church in Boone.

Norma enjoyed yard work and flower gardening, stamp and coin collecting, walking, swimming and sun tanning, trips to Meskwaki Casino in Tama, and the activities of her grandchildren. She was a member of the Boone County Historical Society.
