When she was not working, Norma enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her children and grandchildren, who lovingly referred to her as "Lola" and "Mama". Norma and Tito loved to travel, especially with their children in the "camper," going crabbing and fishing with the complimentary snacks of pumpkin seeds, Twizzlers, and chicharones. She also enjoyed. her travels to Europe with her husband, especially to Portugal and Rome. In her later years, she enjoyed going back to her roots, Iba, Zambales, which she made her second home.
