Norman William Jantzen

,

When Norm was 17, a sermon and the song “If I gained the world but lost the Saviour, would my life be worth living for a day?” challenged him to commit his life to God. His faith was always central. Norm met Mary at Bethany Bible College, Hepburn, Sask. He enjoyed a long, rewarding teaching career in Dalmeny, Melfort and Saskatoon, Sask., until 1984. He sold real estate and retired in 2000. Norm treasured time with his family including road trip vacations, horseback riding, family gatherings and cottages at Brightsand and Anglin Lakes. Norm devoted time to The Gideons, Redberry Bible Camp, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and Forest Grove Community Church. Many international students still consider him their second dad. Norm was a strong, kind, selfless man with a gentle spirit and servant heart.
