Obituary for Norma J. "Ronni" Templeton

Norma J. Templeton, 91, of Terre Haute died Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at Regional Hospital in Terre Haute. She was born October 23, 1927 in Paris, Illinois to James B. Frazier and Ida Craig Frazier. She was preceded in death by her husband, John A. Templeton, and her sister Dora Ellen Swango.

Survivors include her four daughters, Lori Fetter and her husband Dick, of Fairfax, Virginia, Linda Brighton and her husband Curt, of Terre Haute, Leslie Rapp and her husband John, of Indianapolis and Sally Nichols and her husband Jim, of Terre Haute; two sisters-in-law, Pauline Anshutz of Terre Haute and Phyllis Myers of Scottsdale, Arizona and a brother-in-law, Thomas Templeton and his wife, Carol of Terre Haute. Also surviving are grandchildren, Christopher (Jessica) Fetter, Philip Fetter, Andrew (Amanda) Brighton, James (Mallory) Brighton, John (Lauren) Rapp, Lauren (Ryan) Mossakowski, J. B. Rapp, Alexandra Nichols and Samantha Nichols; great-grandchildren, Cole Fetter, Landon Brighton, Reese Brighton, Riley Brighton, Olivia Brighton, Beau Mossakowski, Pierce Mossakowski and Ellie Rapp and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

She graduated from Paris High School, attended MacMurray College and graduated from Indiana University in 1950, where she was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. Ronni spent her adult life providing a loving home for her husband John and their four daughters. She oversaw the operation of family farms in Edgar County, Illinois and Sunflower County, Mississippi. She was a member of the League of Terre Haute, Chapter K PEO and OLGA and was a supporter of local organizations such as The Sheldon Swope Art Museum, Vigo County Historical Society, Union Hospital Foundation and Indiana University. She was a member of Maple Avenue United Methodist Church, The Country Club of Terre Haute and John’s Island Club of Vero Beach, Florida. Ronni loved to enjoy life, to laugh and have a good time whenever possible. She was never first to leave a good party! Members of her family savor many stories of humorous antics from her mischievous handiwork. She loved Indiana University basketball and like all passionate Hoosiers, she suffered during the past three decades awaiting the next national championship. She was an avid golfer and enjoyed comradery and travel with many lady golfing companions, sadly most now passed. Her number one companion in golf and all things was John, the love of her life. Their loving marriage was the most important part of her life, and it produced a nurturing home which stands as a living legacy to her four daughters and their families.
