Norma Jean Weaver, 88, went home to her heavenly Father and family at 11:40 a.m., Nov. 23, 2019, at Timbercrest Healthcare Center, North Manchester, with both of her daughters by her side. One of two daughters born to Harley and Mabel (Frier) Brown, Norma was born April 25, 1931 in Wabash.
After graduating from Wabash High School in 1949, Norma worked at Diehl Machines and Honeywell Manufacturing, both in Wabash, Indiana. Norma then started at Kerlin Tractor Sales in Silver Lake, where she worked as a bookkeeper and office manager for many years before retiring in 2000.
The foundation of Norma’s well-being was her faith in the Lord. She strengthened her faith as a member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church for numerous years. As a resident at Timbercrest for nearly twenty years, Norma was an active volunteer. She enjoyed serving on the Healthcare Visitation and Sunday Worship Committees. Norma was also a member of Delta Theta Tau, Wabash. She loved spending time with her family and one of her favorite pastimes was playing cards.
Norma is survived by two daughters, Beverly (Jerry) Kohn, Three Oaks, Mich.; and Nancy Zorger, North Manchester; one sister, Carol (Terry) McDonald, Wabash; two grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; and four nephews.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-law, Stephen Zorger; and one grandson, Todd Kohn.
