Norma Kontour grew up in Limon, Colorado, as one of five girls, (sisters Ellene, who preceded her in death, Margie, Nina, and Karen). She loved to hunt and work on cars with her dad. She met her future husband, Fred, in her senior year in high school. They began their adventure as husband and wife with a business they owned alongside a sister and brother-in-law. The business was eventually sold and they relocated to Colorado Springs, where Norma lived most of her life. Norma had one daughter, Connie. Norma was an amazing cook and loved baking, building things and working in her garden. She loved her dogs, and always had one underfoot.
Norma loved to travel. As a child she made numerous trips with family to visit friends in Missouri by train. As an adult, she loved to travel throughout the western United States with Fred and visit museums and explore new country, traveling by way of camper. She was an avid Rook card game player, and would start up a game anytime she could recruit a group to play.
Her three grandsons, Chuck, Chris and Curtis, kept her busy for many years as she attended just about every sport event they participated in, whether soccer, baseball, basketball or football. She was known for her “goodie bags” which she always packed with snacks and treats for her grandsons at their events.
Norma had a strong faith and was dedicated to her church and teaching her family about God. She could be found reading her Bible daily and spending time watching religious programs on television. She loved reading, and spent many hours on subjects from health and nutrition, to faith and discipleship.
Retirement was spent in Lochbuie, Colorado. Norma and Fred were married for 59 years. After Fred’s death, she and her beloved dogs spent time with her daughter and grandchildren. She entered into her new life on October 1, 2020. She is survived by 1 daughter, a son-in-law, Chuck Sr., 3 grandsons and their wives, 18 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandsons. We will all miss her so much, but we are glad she is now in heaven with Fred.
Due to Covid restrictions, a private service will be held for family and close friends.
