Norma Muriel Bratberg, 94, of Rushford, Minn. died on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford.

Norma was born on May 20, 1920, in Norway Township of Fillmore County, Minn. to Oscar and Amelia (Tompte) Gravos. She was raised in Norway Township and attended the Flattum School through the 8th grade. Norma was baptized and confirmed at the First Lutheran Church of Highland in Highland, Minn. She worked as a housekeeper in Rushford for a couple of years. On March 17, 1937, she married Melvin Bratberg.

She did domestic work and childcare for the Roger Colbenson family in Rushford. She was a member of Highland Prairie Lutheran Church in rural Peterson where she was active in the ladies groups. In her spare time Norma enjoyed rosemaling, quilting, embroidery, crafts, and other handiwork. She absolutely adored her grandchildren.

Norma is survived by two children: Betty Olness of Stewartville, and Merlin (Ellen) Bratberg of Plainview, Minn.; seven grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and one sister, Doris Beissert of East Bernard, Texas.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, two brothers: Palmer and Orrin Gravos, and one sister, Edna Fossum.
