Norma June Seehafer of Rothschild, age 87 passed away on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 in Palliative Care at Wausau Aspirus Hospital.
Norma was born on June 20, 1934 to Elmer and Florence (Weden) Foster. Norma was married to Marvin Seehafer on August 14, 1954 spending 68 wonderful years together raising three children. She had many health challenges over the years. Her strong will and feisty spirit, along with the help of Marvin and her family, overcame these challenges.
Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought extreme joy to her life and their visits would put a big smile on her face no matter how she was feeling. She enjoyed attending and cheering on her grandchildren at their sporting events and other interests. Norma also enjoyed gardening, putting puzzles together and spending time at their cottage fishing, cross country skiing, and sitting by the campfire. Marvin and Norma followed the Jackson Family Band for many years. She was a member of Peace United Church of Christ for 50+ years and prayer was a very important part of her daily life.
Norma was survived by her husband Marvin; children Sue (Ralph) Brzezinski of Saxon, WI and Michael (Dawn) Seehafer of Kronenwetter; grandchildren Joshua (Sarah) Brzezinski, Adam (Emily) Seehafer, Matthew (Emily) Seehafer, and Jessica (Fiancé Evan Call) Seehafer; great-grandchildren Elissa Brzezinski, Hunter Brzezinski, Carson Seehafer, Rose Call, Baby Boy Seehafer, and Allison Mashlan; brothers Wayne (Judy) Foster of Greendale, WI, Carl Foster of Wausau, Harlan (Rosie) Foster of Surprise, AZ and Dale Foster of Wausau; sister-in-law Donna Seehafer of Rothschild; along with many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents Elmer and Florence Foster, son Dennis Seehafer, great-granddaughter Abigail Seehafer, sister Joan Young, and special sister-in-law Judy Foster.
