Norma Shwayder Degen Obituary
Norma passed peacefully at the age of 93 after a long beautiful life. She was born in Denver, Colorado to Jesse and Nellie Shwayder and was the youngest of five. Growing up, she was instilled with both the love of golf and the necessity of giving back. She combined these two passions to start an annual charity golf tournament, which benefitted the National Jewish Hospital. She was married to her beloved Louis Degen for 49 years. Norma is survived by her two children, Ronna Sterling and Carol Melamed. She adored her grandchildren: Brad Sterling (Danielle), Pam Wachtel (Marc), David Kaufman (Debbie), and Billy Kaufman, and 8 great grandchildren: Ryan, Nate, Joe, Lily, Wyatt, Lauren, Emily, and Ashley. We will all cherish her with loving memories.
