RIP – NORMA LYON


EXPIRED: 06/26/11 –  Norma Lyon, 81, crafted life-size sculptures of Elvis, Garth Brooks, a Harley-Davidson, Smokey Bear, a recreation of American Gothic and even Jesus and his disciples at the Last Supper. And she made them out of butter & showed them at the Iowa State Fair. But her real claim to fame was her lifelike bovines. Every year for 50 years she made one from 600 lbs of the stuff, earning her the name “butter cow lady.”
