Nona E. Horman, 90, of Almena, died Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at Mayo Clinic Health System-Northland in Barron. She was born May 2, 1922, the last of five children, in the township of Maple Grove to Nickoli and Olea Olson. Nona attended a one-room school at Washington Irving Grade School near Hillsdale, WI and graduated from Barron High School in 1940. She was married in New Scandinavia Church near Hillsdale, WI on June 12, 1942 to Frank C. J. Horman and they lived on the Horman family farm near Almena. Nona was a hard-working farmer's wife who helped with the milking of cows and chores, and maintained a large produce garden from which she canned and froze vegetables. She was a member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Almena for 61 years and was active in that church, participating in the Ladies Aid Society, circles and working countless hours in the kitchen. Immediately after high school, Nona worked in the old Farmer's Store in Barron and then Larson's Store in Almena as a store clerk, besides being a farmer's wife. Most of all she enjoyed and loved her family and friends. Nona loved to play bridge and helped many to learn the game. She loved music and taught herself how to play the Hammond organ. Nona remembered her family on every occasion and let them know how much faith and love she had for them. She lived on the farm with her husband for 54 years and upon his death sold the farm and moved to Barron. After living in the Johnson apartments in Barron for 12 years, Nona moved to Maplecroft Assisted Living and then most recently to Monroe Manor in Barron. No matter where she lived, she made friends quickly and enjoyed the company of everyone she met. She was the kindest and most sincere person. Nona will be remembered for her dedication and love to her family and friends.
