Norma was born on Christmas Day, 1938 in Walburg, Texas to Ernest Paul and Martha Ruth Neitch Domel. She was raised in the Walburg community. Norma graduated the 8th grade as Salutatorian at Zion Lutheran School, and Valedictorian at Hutto High School in 1957. She married Edmond “Eddie” Kaase on November 2, 1957, at Zion Lutheran Church in Walburg and quickly started a family and then later settled in Cedar Park. Together they shared 57 wonderful years of marriage.
Norma, Eddie and their four children were long time members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Cedar Park, Texas and Norma was a member of the LWML at Good Shepherd. Norma loved playing and watching sports, basketball and softball especially. She was even on the bowling team at Redeemer Lutheran. She loved to travel and go camping. One of her favorite things to do was polka dance with Eddie. When her children were young, she loved to sew clothes for them and her daughters’ dolls, she also made a few drill team outfits for her nieces, and later made her 2 oldest daughter’s wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. You could always count on Norma to finish the daily crosswords in the paper and playing bingo with her friends. She was indeed a woman of many verses, but her truest enjoyment and greatest legacy was her family and friends.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents, husband Edmond “Eddie” Kaase, son- in- law Billy Johnson, and three great grandchildren, Isabella Sienna Scotto d’Antuono, Dillon Patrick Henehan and Julian Thomas Weiss.
