OBITUARY ~ NORMA JEAN (REED) MUNYON
May 05, 1934 ~ September 16, 2012

Norma Jean MUNYON, daughter of Charlie Franklin & Helen Elizabeth (SOUTH) REED, was born May 5, 1934 in Decatur County, Iowa. Norma graduated from Kellerton High School in 1952. She was united in marriage to Chester V. MUNYON on February 14, 1954 in Kellerton, Iowa. They lived in Del Rio, Texas for 32 months before returning to Kellerton after Chet's discharge from the service. While in Texas, a son Terry, was born in 1955. After their return to Iowa, another son, Rodney, was born, in 1956. In 1961, Chet and Norma purchased and operated the now 4th generation family business, the Kellerton Hardware. In 1984, they built a new building, and added in the Munyon Mini Mart. Norma also worked for Arlen HUGHES for 17 years during the tax season.

To describe Norma as a loving wife, mother and grandmother would be an understatement. She read to her boys everyday when they were young, later doing the same for her grandchildren. She always held hands with Chet wherever they went. After their retirement from the family business, they traveled the United States painting McDonald play ground equipment. She loved to travel and they have been in every state except Hawaii. They have also traveled to Mexico and have been to all of the Canadian providences. They rode motorcycles with their relatives in the "Family Affair" motorcycle club. Norma & Chet went south to Arizona from 1975 to 2006. Norma loved to cook and the grandkids will always remember her Sunday morning waffles, fruit cocktail, and powdered sugar breakfast-with corn syrup on top! She loved to sew and sing. Norma was always singing to herself or those close by. Norma and the family camped at the Iowa State Fair for many years. They purchased a lot at Sun Valley Lake before there was water and spent many wonderful years there camping and having hog roasts. Any Sunday dinner would find family members gathered around her table. Her home was always open to family & friends. Her nephew, Kent REED spent 8 summers in the MUNYON home. In 1973, they hosted a foreign exchange student, Pedro Gallardo MUCHADO, from Brazil. Norma was known as Aunt Nornie to numerous nieces, nephews, and local children.

Norma passed away on September 16, 2012. She was preceded in death by her parents; a brother and his wife, Harold & Mary Jane REED; and a sister and her husband, Lucille & Kenneth MICKAEL.

Those left to cherish her memory include her loving husband, Chet MUNYON of Kellerton; sons Terry MUNYON & wife Debbie of Kellerton and Rodney MUNYON & wife Leeanne of Mesa, AZ; grandchildren PJ WEST & husband Mathew of Kellerton, and Matthew MUNYON of Kellerton, Mandy MUNYON of Mesa, AZ, Sara BAUTZ & husband Brett of Granite Canyon, WY,; great-grandchildren Olivia & Sophia WEST of Kellerton; two brothers Leslie REED & wife Angela of Apache Junction, AZ and Lloyd REED & wife Carol of Des Moines, IA; one aunt Sylvia HALL of Decatur, IA; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Her memorial fund is to the Alzheimer's Association.
