Mrs. Firm was born on Oct. 24, 1934 at her grandparents’ home in Laings, Ohio. She is the daughter of Azel and Ruth Norris.

She was a 1952 graduate of Jefferson Union High School. During her teen years, she was an active member of the Sweet Adelines, Richmond Grange, and achieved first chair clarinet. She loved to sing and play piano and never lost that love. A new piano was purchased in 1969 and has been passed down through the generations and is still in the family today.
