Norwin T. Thiel, age 91, of Cambridge, formerly of St. Paul, died Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 57 years, Lorna.
Norwin is survived by his children, Bonnie (David) Hallstrom, and David (Angie) Thiel; grandchildren Erin (Michael) Krueger, Erik Hallstrom, and Ryan, Michael, and Daniel Thiel.
Norwin enjoyed spending time outdoors. He loved fishing with family and friends, and spending time in his garden, where his giant tomatoes were envied by many. His sense of humor was contagious.
Norwin loved his grandchildren dearly, and spent many of his retirement years caring for them. He truly had a servant’s heart, and his priorities were always in order; faith, family, and friends.
Funeral services took place Friday, Feb. 12 at 9:30 a.m. at Holcomb-Henry-Boom-Purcell chapel in St. Paul, with visitation for one-half hour prior to the service. Interment was at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
