Norma Jean Fernau was born March 26, 1937 in Butte, Nebraska to Frank Dale Haney and Florence Marie Beem and died March 2, 2016 at the Gregory Community Hospital in Gregory, South Dakota at the age of 78 years. Norma grew up in Butte, Ne- braska and graduated from Butte High School. Norma married her high school sweetheart, John "Jack" Fernau, on May 21, 1956 at the Community Bi- ble Church in Butte, Nebraska. To this union four children were born: Bob, Cindy, Teri, and Tammy. Jack and Norma's early years were spent living in Butte, NE and Winner, SD. In 1970 they moved to Burke, SD and operated Fer- nau's Market grocery store for eight years. She also worked at the Gregory County Assessor's office and then retired to work with Jack on the ranch. Norma's life revolved around her husband, kids, and grandkids. She also loved camping and sitting along the Missouri River and taking trips with her daughters. Norma was a sweet, caring, and giving person with a heart of gold. We were all blessed to have her in our life and she will be missed greatly. Norma is survived by her lov- ing husband, John "Jack" Fernau of Burke, South Dakota; her children: Bob (Karla) Fernau of Rapid City, SD, Cindy (Charlie) Wolf of Burke, SD, Teri (Roger) Rave of Crooks, Continued on Page 4
