In this oral history, Sr. Norma reflects on her sixty-four years (as of 2015) of being a Franciscan Sister. She discusses her upbringing in St. Louis, Missouri, during the Depression era, and how that led to her vocation of service to all people (the poor, as well as tending to fellow Sisters in particular) in various capacities, despite her own perceived shortcomings.
