Norma Jean Barger, age 72, was called home, on January 10, 2022 at Crown Pointe Care Center.
Norma loved colorful flowers, her family, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. She never met a person she could not call friend shortly after. Dementia did take its toll, but she was always giving away fortunes (in her head) to all in need. She was a wonderful human being and will be missed dearly.
Preceded in death by mother Madelyn Strawser, father Howard Rader, husband Kenneth Barger, brothers Howard (Butch) Rader, Ronald Rader, and Doug Rader, and son Daniel Rader.
Survived by daughter, Susan Rader; sons Ken (Tina) Barger and Flint (Jodi) Barger; grandchildren, Flint Barger, Jr., Holly Barger, Vance Barger, Blaise Barger, Daniel Rader, and Robert “Bobby” Rader; sisters, Rose (Larry) McGinnis, Anna Shultz, and Tina (Jim) Blair; brother, Ralph (Kim) Rader; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
