Norman and Ellen were lifelong sweethearts, beginning at Belleville High School in Belleville, Michigan. They were married October 26, 1957 in New Boston, Michigan and honeymooned in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. They were very happily married for 63 years.

Their quick wit and sassy attitudes were always great entertainment. Together they enjoyed traveling, reading, crocheting, knitting, and visiting with family. Retirement was one long vacation; every day was Saturday and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

They are survived by their daughter, Susan Cecilia LaCroix (Albert); son, Curtis Michael Konieczki (Pamela); brothers Gerry Konieczki and family, Harry Scharboneau, Bill Scharboneau and John Scharboneau and their families.
Until We Meet Again
We think about you always,
We talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives,
Until we meet again.”
