Norma Moore
Norma E. Moore, 92, Overland Park, Kansas passed away Sunday, January 20, 2008 at the Sweet Life of Rose Hill. Memorial Services will be held at a later date.
Aunt Norma was a phenomenal woman. The eldest of four children born to George and Pauline Rothe, in the Greater Otis-Bison Metro Area of Rush County Kansas, Norma grew up on a farm which specialized in the production of dust (according to the stories). She emulated the traits of her parents and siblings...hard worker, wry Kansas humor, extremely literate and intelligent, and eager to do something of value out in the real world. Norma married Orland Moore and raised three hard-working, literate, intelligent kids, each with very wry Kansas humor. Norma proudly played an integral role in the Moore Rubber Company for most of her life, and was as equally proud of her children and grandchildren. Our Rothe family reunions were filled with humor and very clear stories from the past. I will miss my Aunt Norma, and offer my heartfelt condolences to her equally phenomenal sister (Elaine), to my wonderful cousins Tom and Kathleen, and to all of Norma's grandchildren.
