There's a yellow rose in heaven that we would like to see. Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as we. The cancer took her quickly, it broke all of our hearts. But come the day we meet again, we never more will part.
Nora Faye Seger, born March 10, 1940 has completed her work here on earth and has taken a call she couldn't refuse. March 8, 2023, she was called for a new assignment that comes with the bonus of a reunion with family and friends she hasn't seen in a long time.
During her time with us, Nora left her mark wherever she went. Born in a time without plumbing, her siblings would haul water for their mother and sneak pears along the way, so she was a bit of a rebel from the beginning.
We weren't told stories of walking five miles in the snow. We were told stories of how they rode a horse and one day, they killed the horse. Except the horse wasn't dead, it was just having a baby. You'll never forget the glimmer in her eye when she was getting to the punch line. Such was her life, a sense of sass and awe.
She loved her garden and was often in it with the kids, showing them how to grow things from flowers to food. You could always count on receiving a loaf of banana bread on Christmas. She might have liked to garden because she was so close to the ground with her four foot something inch height.
Talented would be an understatement. Her art could be found in the local museum and it was amazing how she kept from smudging the pencil work with her being a lefty. Being a woman with many talents, she always encouraged everyone to pursue their dreams. Although sadly, she did not obtain her dream of being married to Sam Elliot.
Nora did, however, marry James McClure, followed by Elmer Bynum, and finally Howard Haudenshild, all of whom were wonderful husbands to her. Sadly, they all left us too soon. She loved them all and spent many years laughing and loving with them during their time with us.
Her biggest love, however, would be children. Especially the grandchildren. You often heard her say "you make beautiful children". The advice she gave to them was humorous and useful, saying, "If someone is mean to you, just shoot them in the eye with dishsoap". Dancing with the kids was her favorite.
Survived by her sister, her children, and a vast number of grand, great, and great-great grandchildren, her legacy continues to grow strong.
Though she has left her body to be present with the lord and is no longer able to dance with us, she will forever be dancing in our hearts. Her laugh will continue to resound with the family and friends she has left behind. We all know she will excel in her new role as guardian angel as she excelled in life.
