Elliott, Norma Larson, 1916-2009
- Existence: 1916 - 2009
Norma Larson Elliott (1916-2009) was a family history specialist for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Arizona.
Norma Larson Elliott was born on May 30, 1916 to Margaret Smith (1884-1973) and Alof Pratt Larson (1882-1961) in Lakeside, Arizona. She married John Budge Elliott (1917-2014) on March 25, 1954, in Mesa, Arizona. She studied family history at Brigham Young University in 1962, and it remained a passion for her whole life. She not only found much of the genealogy that is listed for the Larson, Smith, Hunt, and Marsden families, but also wrote and collected their histories. She also maintained records about her parents' homestead businesses, missions, and lives.
She had no children of her own, but was a motherly influence in the lives of her nieces and nephews.
Elliott died on June 5, 2009 in Tempe, Arizona, and is buried in Lakeside, Arizona, next to her parents, who donated the land to the city of Lakeside.
