In Memory

Norman Seeger

Norman E. Seeger, age 74, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday afternoon, December 1, 2018, at Ascension All Saints Medical Center. Norman was born in Racine on May 4, 1944, son of the late Norman R. and Doris Mae (nee: Deshais) Seeger.

On August 26, 1967, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Norm married his best friend and the love of his life, Carol A. Butgereit. Norm graduated from St. Catherine’s High School “Class of 1962.” Furthering his education, he graduated from Dominican College in 1966, and obtained a master’s degree in Nuclear Chemistry from Purdue in 1968. Norm spent the next twenty-one years educating and molding the young minds of students at St. Catherine’s High School, where he made countless friendships and valued relationships through the years before retiring there in 1989. He taught Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Studies, and Drivers Ed. He helped with Math Club, Ski Club, coached the junior varsity baseball team, and led many students and friends on wilderness trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. He was owner and President of The Seeger Map Company, Inc., which he and his father started in 1969 and based in downtown Racine, where Norm restored the 401 and 403 Main Street buildings for his company and to encourage the re-vitalization of the area he loved. He and Seeger Map became respected members in local, regional, and national cartographic production.…/norman-e-seeger.124918

Karl and Susan Seitz would like to express our deepest sympathies to Carol Seeger and family on the loss of Norman.

I had many classes with both Norman and Carol.  Norman was a bright guy and always friemdly aand  willing to help..  fond high school memories of both of you.

Most of our classmates dont know that Norm and Carlol lived next door to my parents for a some years in the 1970s.  My Mother was nearly deaf and my Dad has a voice that carried.  "Ma, where are my keys?'  etc.  I am sure it was quite entertaining.

Carol was very gracious to describe my parents as "sweet" and "colorful'.  Thank you, Carol.

We will all see each other again  in thre Resurrection.  Both Dad and Mom visited me in dreams, one very humerous, after their passingss to let me know everything was all right and they were healed of their earthly illnesses.  In one dream, Dad told me not to worry about some medical tests my Mother was having which might indicate serious illness.  The next day, I was told the tests worked out OK.

 I hope this bit of humor helps get you over this very difficult time.  Best wishes.

Carol, so sorry for your loss.  Sending my condolences on the passing of your husband, Norm.  I have no stories to share except to remember both of you from our class of "62. 

This is just a reminder that we are all getting older and we are not promised tomorrow so make the most of our time with our loved ones today.  With Sympathy,  Jo-Ann Tennyck Pouliot

It is always a somber affair when as young as Norm passes. I remember Norm as being a nice guy, pretty smart, and outgoing. Carol was actually in the same St. Mary's class that I was. She was brilliant. I was always a toss up between Carol and Kathy Weyrich (Nicknamed Rufus) as to whom was the best student. It will be a tough holiday for the surviving members of the Seeger family, but with the help of God and friends, they will persevere. Regards, Dick Petrick

Carol, our condolences on the passing of your husband, Norm. He was truly a credit to the values of the "class of 1962SCHS". He not only left loving memories to his family but warmth and friendship to many of his students.  I'm sure he will be remembered by so many people for what he gave of himself. I hope you and your family find peace and joy in this coming season in spite of this terrible loss.
