When Norman was dis- charged in 1946, he returned to his family and promptly got a job with Pacific Gas and Electric in Chico. "I didn't even have a chance to look for anything else," Norman said about the job he received in the accounting department. "I went right to work." The couple's second daughter, Susan, was born while they were in Chico. Then began the years when they started moving as Norman worked his way up in the company. Norman said he knew that if he wanted to get ahead, it wouldn't be from the accounting department. From Chico, the family moved to Quincy, then to Orland, and returned to Quincy in 1971. Nor- man became the I_as Plumas di. vision manager for PG&E. Following retirement, Nor- man took a job with Feather Publishing until his second re- tirement in the mid-1990s. Looking back over the years, it is clear that family and close friends are important to both of the Sheltons. Although Norman is still ac- tive in the Quincy Rotary, plays a little golf, and they both do a lot of reading, their commitment to their family and friends still remains their highest priority. Besides their three children, the Sheltons have nine grand- children and 19 great-grandchil- dren.
