Norma Elrod was the wife of Howard Elrod and lived next door to Alice Martin. When Michael and Judith Myers were children, she often babysat them.[1] On October 31st 1978, Michael broke into the Elrod home to steal a butcher knife while Norma watched the news of the murders.

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • In the televison version of Halloween II, it is implied Mrs. Elrod is murdered or at least frightened by Michael Myers.
  • In the trailer to the new Halloween (2018), Michael sneaks into a woman's house and murders her with a hammer. The woman is elderly, with the same hair style and rollers, and wearing a similar pink robe as Mrs. Elrod. She was also making a sandwich with ham much like Mrs. Elrod.
