Norma Alteneder passed away June 24 at the age of 81. She was born February 29, 1932 to Edna & Melvin West in Orofino, ID. Norma had fun with her leap-year birthday, enjoying the fact that she was "16" when her granddaughters were 16! She married Orville Alteneder in 1947 and the two were married over 50 years when he passed away in 1998. Together they raised 5 children. Norma loved being a mother and grandmother! In her words, "They were a joy I can never express!" Norma was also preceded in death by daughter, Karen. She is survived by 2 daughters and two sons, Salena Haselip (Steve), Linda Smith (Dan), Kenneth (Karen), Aaron (Kelly) and 3 sisters, Melva, Maryann, Sandy. She had 16 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. Norma asked us to pass on this message, "All my love to my precious family and to all my special friends who made life fun in many ways!" She was much loved and will be greatly missed!!

I'll miss my sister very much, but I know I will see her in the holy land one day and we will watch the Walton's and eat popcorn like we were young again.
