Norma Annette Jorgensen

Obituary
The Guest Book is expired.

One of Christ's best advocates passed this Wednesday September 14th at 81 years after a prolonged illness. A quiet resident in Conroe for over thirty years, she was always at the forefront of assisting in community efforts. Active in her church, Meals on Wheels and the Catholic Church clothes drive, she and her husband Don, could always be relied upon to help those in need. Neighbors could always turn to her for support and assistance. Always prepared, with a full freezer, having built on high ground and owning a generator, neighbors would flock to her house during the Conroe River Plantation floods. Although her earthly gains were small, her giving was beyond compare.

Born in Redfield, South Dakota, Norma was a Lutheran pastor's daughter. She and her sister Lorraine moved throughout the midwest until their parents settled in Texas. She attended high school in Mission and met her husband, Don, upon graduating. She led a full life. Prior to living in Conroe, she spent over twenty years living in Venezuela. Adventurous and supportive she resided in a foreign country to allow her family to experience life like no others. Mother to only one child, she was determined to allow him unfettered experiences by consenting to let him and his father explore jungles, sail the seas and climb mountains. She suppressed a mother's protective measures and trusted the Lord to guide and watch them. Maintaining a sense of civilization about her, she was always along for the ride if there was a roof over her head and a bed to sleep on at night, dubious requirement in Venezuela. She was an extraordinary woman that always stood for what was right and moral. She would always defend another party. Her character was stalwart. She was unbending in her beliefs and would never relinquish when she knew it was Biblically correct. Many a fencepost lost arguments with her. In church, she could belt out a joyful noise that few could ever match. She was a friend to all and witnessed in a soft guiding manner. Through her bout of illness she showed an inordinate amount of courage knowing that pain might be on the horizon but knew that her ultimate place would be with our Lord. Her husband Don of 62 years, her son Jeff and her two granddaughters Rachael and Tori will miss her daily. A memorial service will be held for Norma this coming Friday, September 23rd at Tree of Life Lutheran Church in Conroe at 1 PM. Norma having been a practical, depression raised person, was never a fan of flowers and wanted anyone wishing to express their condolences to please donate to her church home Tree of Life.
