Oskaloosa, Iowa | Age 96

Norma Leona Whitlatch, 96, of Oskaloosa passed peacefully in her home on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, surrounded by family.
Norma was born to William and Viola (Robbins) Brown in Lovilia, Iowa where she attended school.

Norma was united in marriage with Gordon “Tony” Whitlatch. They resided in Albia and later made their home in Oskaloosa.

Norma raised her children and also managed the Dairy Queen for more than 20 years.

She enjoyed sewing, baking, camping and spending time with her family.

Norma had a heart for Christ, and she was called to serve as a Sunday School teacher at Oskaloosa Community Church and later at Lifehouse Community Church, where she served as an active member for more than 50 years. Although many lives were influenced through her gift for teaching God’s word, her true passion was working with the little children and the many hugs she received. She was known to her church family as Miss Norma and was truly an angel here on Earth.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Tony; her parents; and five brothers: Don, Alvia, Bill, Larry, and infant Gerald; her sister, Dorothy; and her granddaughter, Jennifer.
