Margaret “Kit” Lenore (Norman) Froebel

February 7, 1936 – January 17, 2020


Margaret (Kit) Froebel, 83 of New Braunfels, Texas was the daughter of Ernest and Gertrude (Hartung) Norman. She was born on February 7, 1936 in Watonga, Oklahoma and died Friday January 17, 2020 in New Braunfels, Texas.

She was a 1954 graduate of Perry High School. She attended Oklahoma A & M College (now Oklahoma State University) and was the first woman to graduate from the School of Technology in 1957 with a degree in Drafting and Design.

When Recruiters from Hughes Tool Company from Houston, Texas came to the A & M campus they offered her a job in their Drafting Department and she left for Houston.

She continued her education at the University of Houston. She met her Husband Dick at Hughes Tool and they were married on February 22, 1958. They made their home in Houston until Dick retired and they moved to New Braunfels, Texas in 2000. She always enjoyed being a stay-at-home Mom.

She enjoyed collecting thimbles and antique sewing items and working with the Perry Alumni Association and keeping up with her classmates from the class of ’54.

She had many honors and awards but was most proud of her 2017 Alumni Association Honor Roll induction.

She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Dick, two daughters Susan Froebel of Austin, Texas, Elizabeth and husband J.D. Dahan, grandsons Jack, Julian and Jamie Dahan all of Cedar Park, Texas, sisters Rozetta Beasley of Matthews, NC, Marilyn Wasemiller of Issaquah, WA, Carolyn Wilda of Richmond, Texas and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
