On November 8, 1951, in Kinder, Louisiana, the Lord blessed William Wyckoff and Lucille Poullard Wyckoff with Norma Ann Wyckoff, the eighth child, and their youngest daughter. She received her GED from Job Corps in 1968 and shortly after met the love of her life, Henry Pete Sr. The two of them united in a marriage where three kids were born: Wilonda, Timeka, and Henry Jr.
Norma accepted Christ at a young age and was a member of Johnson Memorial Baptist Church for almost 40 years, where she sang in the church choir with an angelic voice that touched your soul.
During Norma’s vibrate life, she had many passions: she loved to fish, zydeco, cook, bake, and make homemade wine.
Norma was a natural caregiver; she freely gave both heart and soul into caring for several critically ill family members inside her home until they transitioned into the next life. Norma played dominos and cards regularly. Although her favorite was a card game named gin-rummy, it was an outlet for family fun and quality time. Norma was the queen of gin rummy with her family; she schooled both siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and family friends; she was a beast and a great competitor.
Although Norma will be missed dearly by her family, we thank God for the time He allowed us to have with her during her 70 years of life here on earth.
