Norma Kent Hedrick

     Norma Kent Hedrick, a longtime resident of Orofino, passed away Friday, Jan. 20, 2012, at the age of 87.
     She was born Feb. 2, 1924, in Ashton, Idaho, to Norman and Leona Kent. She married Robert Thomas Hedrick March 31, 1941. After working construction in numerous western states and farming in southeastern Idaho, Bob and Norma settled in Orofino. Norma worked at the Konkolville Motel for 27 years before retiring in 2001.
     She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, in 1991, and son Donald in 1988. She is survived by two sons; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
     Norma enjoyed her many friends and loved being around her family. The real highlight for her was the time spent with her grandkids. Her eyes would light up as if she were a young girl at the mere mention of their names. She also loved to watch all kinds of sports, but the one that she really enjoyed was NASCAR. She knew most of the drivers and their records and had one favorite driver that you better not complain about.
     A viewing will be at 11 a.m. today at Pine Hills Funeral Chapel of Orofino, followed by a funeral service at 2 p.m.
