Norbert William Schloemer, of Willard, went to be with the Lord at his home on Sunday, January 24th, surrounded by his family. He was 85.
He was born September 14, 1930 in Cincinnati, OH to Norbert H. and Elizabeth (Grove) Schloemer.

He entered the army in 1951 and served most of his duty in Fort Lewis Washington.
On September 6, 1952, he married Kathleen Mary Schaffer of Monroeville.
Norb was a yardmaster for the B&O, later CSX, retiring in 1986. His favorite place was his garden next to the house where he raised produce for the family and for sale at a stand by the road.

Norb was preceded in death by a son, Peter in 1966, his parents, and brother, Robert.

Please except my condolences. I remember when Paul and I would Take a ride to visit Uncle Norb and Aunt Betty. A couple of times we stopped over to visit you and the family. Many years ago when the children were very small. Paul was very proud to have his middle name, Norbert, as it was Paul’s Mothers Brother name, which Uncle Norb called his 1st. son Norbert. Kate, I know how hard to loose the one you Love, as I did with Paul. Just remember the smiles and good memories and look what the Lord has given to you both. The
Children, grandchildren, Great grandchildren.
Love to All, Colleen Maier Leesemann
