Fresno, Calif. - The Bradeen family will celebrate the life of Norma Bradeen on Friday, Jan. 6, at 2 p.m. at the Custer Community Church, Custer, S.D., with Rev. Don Stoebner officiating. The Lord called Norma Home Thursday, Dec. 8, 2005.

Norma was born to Arthur and Lena Haskell June 17th, 1935, in Conde, S.D. She graduated from Redfield High School in 1953.

June 1, 1953, she married the love of her life and 4-H sweetheart, Robert (Bob) Bradeen, at the Methodist Church in Frankfort, S.D. Norma joined Bob in Texas while he served in the U.S. Army and a short farming career in eastern South Dakota. In 1960 they moved to the Bear Mountain Ranch in Custer and raised Polled Hereford cattle and joined Bob's father in the auction business. Norma became Bob's right-hand lady and cashier for the Bradeen Auction Service until 1995 when they sold the business to their youngest son Ron who is a third generation auctioneer. In March of 2003 Norma moved to California to live closer to her daughter.

Norma was a member of the Custer Community Church, The Fidelis Circle, a 4-H leader, Jobs Daughters, and Beta Sigma Fi. She loved riding horses and taking pictures.

She is survived by three sons: Mike Bradeen and Ron (Jil) Bradeen, Custer, Steve Bradeen, Menifee, Calif.; one daughter, Nancy (Bud) Hendrickson, Coarsegold, Calif.; a brother Allen (Eldwin) Haskell of Redfield; six special grandchildren, Dan, (Kate), Mindy, Chauncey, Zoey, Grant, Brett; and one great-grandchild, Anthony.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband.

A memorial has been established to the Custer Community Church for a new piano.

Cards may be sent to her daughter, Nancy Hendrickson at 41715 John Muir Drive, Coarsegold, CA 93614.

McColley's Chapel of the Hills is in charge of the arrangements.
