(Broeg) Jenkins

On Monday, January 22, 2018, Norma Grace (Broeg) Jenkins passed away, at the age of 94, in her home in Rolling Hills Estates, California.

She was born on August 10, 1923 in Burlington, Iowa, to Frank Broeg and Norma Elizabeth (Louck) Broeg. She was the third eldest child of eight.

She married Merrill William Jenkins, from Bagley, Iowa, on October 19, 1946, in Santa Monica, California. Together they had Paul, born March 5, 1948, and Jeff, born December 19, 1949. Norma stayed home to raise her boys through junior high, then served as bookkeeper for twenty years at General Forming Corporation, her husband's business.

Norma enjoyed being active with the PTA, church, and PEO. She and Merrill bought a home in Los Angeles in 1954, and moved to Rolling Hills Estates in 1963, where she lived until her passing.

She was a grand lady, matriarch of the Broeg family. She loved being a mother and grandmother and she taught us all the importance of family.

She is survived by her two sons, four grandchildren; Carrie (Jenkins) Northum, Randall Jenkins, Bethany (Jenkins) Conklin, Steven Jenkins, and five great-granddaughters; also by her sisters, Dora Mae (Broeg) Philpott and Mary Lou (Broeg) Hummell. She was preceded in death by her husband, Merrill, in 1993.

A memorial service was held at Rolling Hills United Methodist Church on January 29, 2018. She is interred at Green Hills Memorial Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
