Norma P. Eisenhauer, 87, of Castalia, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born Sept. 22, 1925, in Castalia, and graduated from Margaretta High School in 1944. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, Castalia. Norma worked for the Castalia Post Office for 27 years, and prior to that for Philco for 18 years. Norma owned and operated a gift shop in Castalia for a few years.
Aunt Normie had such a passion for life. She loved nature and all the beautiful things that earth had to offer — the birds and the flowers. She had such a green thumb; why she never met a "flower" she couldn't grow!
She was a treasure and real jewel to everyone that knew and loved her.
She is survived by nephews, Chuck (Deb) Eisenhauer, Brad Eisenhauer, Nathan (Ann) Howards, Mathhew (Gerri) Howards, Timothy (Jan) Howards, and Daniel (Connie) Howards; nieces, Becky Eisenhauer, Diana (Howard) Bolen, and Pam (Darden) Moore; many great-nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews; and many friends.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Josephine (Bateman) Eisenhauer; brother, Milton Eisenhauer; and sister, Dorothy Howard.
Friends may call from 10 a.m. Monday, April 15, until services at noon at Grace Lutheran Church, 203 S. Washington St., Castalia. The Rev. Kathleen Suggitt will officiate. Burial will be in Castalia Cemetery.
