Norma L. Saale (nee Bailey), of O'Fallon, Missouri, passed away Monday, March 25, 2019 at the age of 87.
Loving wife of the late Norman V. Saale; beloved daughter of the late Chester and Mayme Bailey; devoted mother of Monty (Susan) Saale, Susan E. Saale, and Shawn (Diane) Saale; cherished grandmother of Heather (Eric) Schnarr, Adam (Sara) Bonderer, Scott (Sarah) Bonderer, Stephanie (Jamie) Dick, Eric (Stephanie) Saale, Lauren (Brandon) Cunningham, Taylor Saale, and Clayton Saale; treasured great-grandmother of twelve. Norma is preceded in death by her brother, Allan Bailey; and sister, Phyllis Jean Saale.
Norma worked as business partner with her husband for more than 50 years at Saale Farm & Grain. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church of Dardenne, where she was a very faithful and dedicated parishioner.
Norma truly loved her family and grandchildren and always looked forward to spending time with them. And, even though she and her husband were Florida snowbirds, they always made sure they came home every Christmas to be with their family. She and her husband also traveled extensively at home and abroad. Norma was a great cook and created wonderful meals when she was entertaining family and friends. She also had a phenomenal barbeque sauce recipe that cannot be duplicated.
Norma enjoyed the outdoors and going fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks. She also liked watching the pelicans and going to the ocean. In years past, she loved to play golf. In her spare time, she looked forward to curling up with a good book and reading. She also enjoyed shopping and was a very fashionable woman. Norma was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
