Luther was born on August 8th, 1957, in Columbia and was the beloved daughter of the late Harold Grooms and Jessie Dugger Grooms.

Luther’s family meant the world to her. She was a devoted mother to her children, Shana Bratton and Dustin Bradford, and grandmother to her grandchildren, Austin Bratton and Camden Bratton. She was also a loving aunt to her nephew, Christopher Prince. Norma was always eager to help and attend every event she could for her children and grandchildren.

Luther will be deeply missed by all who knew her. In addition to her parents, Luther was preceded in death by her sister, Helen “Sally” Parfrey.
