El Paso, IL Norman Lynn Robeson, 75, went safely into the arms of Jesus on Monday, October 5, 2015 at Advocate BroMenn Hospital after a brave fight with cancer.

He was born September 21, 1940 to Ray & Arlene Robeson. He married Roselyn Rae Nelson on June 16, 1961 at First Presbyterian Church, Normal, IL. He graduated from Illinois State University with major in Agriculture and minor in Latin. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Korea in 1967.

He and Rose farmed the family farm southwest of El Paso all of his working life. He served as church treasurer for nearly 15 years.

Norm and Rose had an abiding desire for travel and camping, visiting many interesting locations across America. They enjoyed membership in the Aliner Owners Club for 10 years, joining a number of the national rallies across the country. One of their more memorable trips was a week long adventure, traveling by covered wagon train in North Dakota. They dressed and lived as pioneers. They also made many camping trips to Florida to visit Rose's mother and narrowly escaping several hurricanes!

Norm is survived by his wife, Rose. He was preceded in death by his parents and a younger sister, Sharon.

There will be no funeral service or visitation. Memorials may be made to Grace Fellowship Church, 2730 Country Rd. 600 N, El Paso, Il.
