Norman Toone Erekson was born the eldest son of Irene Toone and Zelph Young Erekson in Salt Lake City on May 10, 1930. While he spent most of his childhood in Mantua, Utah, in 1942 the family moved to Holladay, where he attended high school. After graduation, he served a two-year mission in New England and, within two years from his return to Utah, he married his wife Annie Paul in the Salt Lake Temple on July 11, 1952.
After their marriage, Norman persued a career as a veterinarian--which took the couple to Iowa (where he attended university), Chicago, and eventually Richmond, Utah--where he opened the North Cache Veterinary Clinic which he worked for 26 years. During this time, the couple also raised six children and five foster children and served in various callings in the church from Senior Missionaries in places like Australia and Wisconsin and as a temple sealer. Bewteen 2004 and 2011, he served with his wife in the Mormon Batallion Association, where he served as Commander and Colonel of the group. On December 20, 2014, Norman passed away in his home in Richmond.
Annie Paul Erekson was born on July 12, 1931. She married recently-returned missionary Norman Toone Erekson on July 11, 1952. After their marriage, she moved with Norman to both Iowa and Chicago before returning to their home in Richmond, Utah, as he worked on getting his degree in Veterinary Science. After returning home, as he opened up the North Cache Veterinary Clinic in their home town, she raised their six biological children as well as five foster children. After they grew up, she worked along with her husband as they served as missionaries in Australia, Wisconsin, and at the Ogden Temple. During the same time, both she and her husband also served in the historical reenaction group "The Mormon Batallion Association" - where she served as the Women's National Auxillary President between 2004-2009. On December 20, 2014, Norman died in their hometown, leaving her to live with her children and their descendents.
