She married the love of her life Norman Owen Sorensen on a warm summer day on June 26, 1964. Mom was sealed to dad on June 27 2019. They settled in Logan, Utah and together they had four daughters that were their pride and joy. She always had a story to tell you about something one of her girls was doing.
Every event that came up mom would dress us up to match in clothing she either bought or made us. Mom loved it when everyone would say “Oh look there are the Sorensen girls! don’t they look cute!” Mom loved to sew, crochet and paint ceramics.
