      Norma Grant Greer Ogden, the daughter of the late Keely and Norma Greer, was born January 9, 1921 at Chalky Level. She graduated from the University of Georgia in 1941 with degrees in zoology and chemistry. While in college she worked in the dean of men's office, was on the rifle team and played in tennis tournaments. She went to work for Bell Laboratories in New York, where she met and married Clement Moore Ogden in 1947.

Clem died in New York in 1952, but Norma remained in Stockbridge until the late 1990's and was a foundling trustee of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, one of the first modern museums devoted to a single artist. The museum has received over a million visitors in its almost 40 year history and is now an accredited American museum. Norma moved back to Athens in 2002 and has taken an active interest in preserving her family's legacy
