Kraemer, Norwin R. (Norm), 83 of Northfield, was called home by our Heavenly Father on August 9th. He was born in Factoryville, PA and raised his family in Northfield. Norm was the Manager/Buyer of the toy and furniture departments at House and Garden Department Store for 32 years. After retiring, he volunteered daily at the Leinweber Nutrition Senior Center and was a member of the Senior Advisory Board. Norm was a faithful member at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. Norm cherished the time he spent with his family and especially his grandchildren. Norm was proud to be able to attend Ryan and Caitlyn’s recent college graduations. Norm was an avid Eagles and Phillies fan. Three of Norm’s favorite hobbies were playing or calling bingo every day at the Nutrition site, his impeccable green thumb with his plants and flowers and glamping with his special friends Bill and Donna. Norm will always be remembered for being the Maître D’ at the Nutrition site. His sense of humor and genuine willingness to help others is evident by his nicknames “Mr. Clean” and “Stormin’ Norman”.
