Norma Maud Green
Norma M. Green, 96, formerly of Augusta, passed away peacefully at her home in Franklin, in the loving care of her family, Sunday evening, Jan. 31, 2021.
Norma Maud Green was born Aug. 19, 1924, in Stanley. She was one of 10 siblings born to Floyd and Maud (Lewallen) Lowe.
She was raised in the rural Stanley area, and attended Evergreen and Pleasant Valley country schools. After her education, she worked as a nurse’s aide at the Northern Colony in Chippewa Falls.
Norma was united in marriage to Lyle Elwood Green May 2, 1943, in Stanley. The couple moved to Milwaukee, in 1945, and several years after Lyle’s retirement, they returned to Augusta, in 1990, and made their home in Ludington Township.
After Lyle passed away July 30, 2003, wanting to be closer to family, Norma moved to Milwaukee, to live with her daughter, Evelyn. For the past three years, she had lived with Evelyn in Franklin.
Occasionally, through the years, Norma worked outside the home, but her home and family always came first. She was a wonderful cook, with a lot of her meals coming from the garden and the canning she did.
She was blessed to have come from a large family, as well as marrying into one, as she loved each and every family gathering. Norma always looked forward to, and cherished the times spent with, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Music was always an important part of her life, and she was especially fond of the country tunes and artists. From young on, she spent many hours singing to the guitar with her sisters.
She will be dearly missed by her daughter – Evelyn Pergande, Franklin; two sons – David Green, Fond du Lac, and Darwyn (Kim) Green, Muskego; seven grandchildren – Neal (Terri) Pergande Jr., Karyn (Sal) “Teddy” Mazza, Colleen (Keith) Mills, Nathan Green, Monica Green, Darrick (Jamiee) Green and Rachel (Paul) Schuelke; seven great-grandchildren – Marissa , Kassandra and Krysta Mazza, Mikayla Mills, Jacob Mills, Michael Pergande and Benjamin Mills; two sisters – Gloria Shilts and Velma Marquardt, both of Woodstock, Ill.; sisters-in-law – Rosemarie Klimeck, Milwaukee, and Verle Green, Cadott; and many, many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her son-in-law – Neal Pergande Sr.; and siblings – Robert, Bernard, Emmert, Alfred “Tom” and Willard Lowe, June Van Meter and Ruby Greb.
Visitation will be held Friday, Feb. 12, from 3-8 p.m., at Anderson Funeral Home in Augusta, and from 10-11 a.m., Saturday, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Ludington Township, rural Fall Creek.
