Norman was born Lucille Pharaby Boileau in Lincoln, Nebraska, and had entered into a career as a singer by the mid-1930s. She performed as a singer for movie soundtracks, and in 1942 she had her first film role, an uncredited part in Personalities. She would never stop performing and working as a singer, and used that as her primary employment, while acting when roles were offered. She only had three film roles through the 1940s, and another three in the 1950s. Her most notable role was in 1952 opposite Randolph Scott in the film Carson City. Her last acting appearance was in the television series The Colgate Comedy Hour, in which she appeared on one episode.
She retired from acting, married minor actor Bruce Kellogg, and returned to her singing career. She and Kellogg had one child together, and remained married until his death in 1967. She became romantically involved with Charles Crenshaw, with whom she became part owner in the "Charles Crenshaw Piano Store", located in Burbank, California.
