Norman Oie

March 19, 1925 - April 30, 2017


Norman passed away on April 30, 2017 at his home near Hillsboro, surrounded by his loving family.

Norman was born on March 19, 1925, on the family farm near Portland, ND, the son of Lars and Marie (Nelson) Oie. He grew up in this area, attended country schools, and began working on farms with his family at an early age. Norman proudly served his country in the United States Army. Upon his discharge he returned to the Hillsboro area where he continued his lifelong career of being a farmer. Norman was united in marriage to Marlene Strom on June 7, 1953 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Hillsboro. Together they made their home near Hillsboro where they raised their family.

For over 20 years, Norman drove bus for Hillsboro Schools. He loved spending time with the kids on the buses and especially enjoyed driving the boy’s basketball players to their games. He was active on the Eldorado Township Board, at the Norway Church and was very active at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church where he served in many ways, most often as an usher/greeter.

Norman is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Marlene; his children – Melody (John) Osgood of Hillsboro; Keith (Pamela) Oie of Wabasha, MN; and Renae (Kevin) Sullivan of Lake in the Hills, IL; his four grandchildren – Leah Oie, Amy Oie, Rileigh Sullivan, and Chase Sullivan. Also surviving are his sister, Lillian Thompson of Hillsboro and several nieces and nephews.

    Norman always had a smile and an encouraging word, whether that be on a long bus ride home after a tough game or Sunday morning at Church. He was consistently a bright spot in all of our lives.

    One of the best…we are all better people for having spent time with and around him. The world could use more Normans

    Norman, he was loved by many. I remember seeing him and his brothers at Taft and sitting on Norman’s lap. He would give us cookies and tempt is to come stay with him by teasing us about getting toys at his house. His playful wit continued and was always appreciated. Norman will be missed by many. Thinking of the entire Oie family during this difficult time. Hugs, prayers and love to you all.
