Norbert Joseph Oligmueller was born on December 26, 1931, in Beemer to Joseph Sr. and Mary (Ortmeier) Oligmueller.  The family moved near Monterey where he attended St. Boniface Catholic School through the 8th grade.  In 1953, he answered the call of duty and served his country in the United States Army until 1955 serving in Germany.  On April 13, 1955, Norbert married Delores Peatrowsky at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Beemer.  The couple spent their early years on a farm east of Beemer before settling on a farm east of West Point.  After retiring from farming, they moved to town in the early 2000’s.

Norbert embarked on a fruitful life. He dedicated his time and skills to various endeavors, including working at Terra Fertilizer, construction for John Casey, and farming.  He found purpose and fulfillment working for the GACC School, where his personality left an indelible mark on the students.

Norbert’s faith was a cornerstone of his life, and he found solace and strength in his devotion to St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  He reveled in the tranquility of fishing, cherishing the moments spent in nature. Above all, he treasured the company of his beloved family, finding happiness in their presence. Norbert’s competitive spirit shone through in his love for playing cards, particularly 10 point pitch and Sheephead. He could be found mowing at St. Michael’s Cemetery up until his final days.  Norbert was a member of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus Assembly No. 596 and a lifetime member of V.F.W. #4912.
