Norma R. Snitchler, 92, of Jefferson, died peacefully on Friday, June 28, 2019, at Wellington Place of Fort Atkinson.
Norma was born on March 6, 1927, in Jefferson, the daughter of Otto "OJ" and Mabel (Kohlhoff) Werner. Norma was one of eight children and her father was a farmer, landowner and later started Werner Well Drilling Service. She attended St. Lawrence School in Jefferson. She worked at Borg Textile for many years and later worked as a housekeeper and also at the Jefferson Veterinary Clinic. Norma was a hardworking person with a strong will and an independent spirit. She kept a spotless home, enjoyed dining out and talking with her friends and family after work. She was a woman who knew how she wanted things done. She had a good sense of humor and a quick wit, both of which came in handy as a single mom. Despite this disadvantage, Norma was able to successfully raise her children and she was very proud of their accomplishments in life. She had a good heart and will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her sons Kevin (Catherine) Snitchler of Edgerton and Gregory (Julie) Matsen of Fitchburg; five grandchildren; and siblings Ruth (John) Robinson of Johnson Creek, Joanne Sturms of Fort Atkinson and David (Debbie) Werner of Jefferson. She is also survived by a number of other relatives and friends.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Chris and siblings Lorraine Kobs, Eileen Trandel, Grace Huebner and James Werner.
