Nora worked part-time in the county extension office in Hansford County for many years. She was also a bookkeeper for the family business, Delozier Welding. Nora was an active member at her home church in Perryton. She enjoyed spending time with her family, going for walks with friends, playing cards with her neighbors, traveling, and going hunting with Clark. Her favorite place to visit was the family cabin, that her dad had built in the 1930’s, in Eagle Nest, New Mexico. Nora was a gifted athlete, playing volleyball and tennis in high school.
