Norma Kay Schuh, 76, of Elk Point, SD formerly of Onida, died March 20, 2019 at Mercy Hospital in Sioux City, IA.

Norma was born on October 26, 1942 to Grace (Gilkerson) and Walter Flannery. She graduated from Riggs High School in Pierre, SD in 1960. It was here that she would meet the love of her life, Larry. They were married on June 29, 1963 and spent the first years of their marriage in Ft. Pierre.

In 1970 they moved to Onida, where they would raise their 3 living children. Larry joined the Catholic Church in 1985 and they became a leadership team couple in the Marriage Encounter ministry not long after that. They would be involved in Marriage Encounter for more than a decade.  

After Larry suffered an aneurysm they moved to Elk Point in 2001 to be closer to their oldest son Mike. They built a wonderful life in their home in Elk Point until Larry’s death December 26, 2009.

Norma was devoted to the Catholic Church, to Larry and to all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. A loyal and faithful servant of the Lord, she loved her daily rosary and prayed for thousands of people during her faith journey.
