Norma Jean Hahn Obituary

Norma Jean Hahn, known to everyone as “Jean” was born to Faye and Harry Jungel on the family farm near New Cambria, KS on October 7, 1932. She grew up milking cows and doing field work with her two sisters, Helen and Betty, and her younger brothers, Marvin and Keith. Jean and her sisters enjoyed hunting and fishing with their dad. The three girls excelled playing in fast pitch softball leagues in the summers.

After graduating from Solomon High, Jean moved to Abilene, KS where she worked as a telephone operator for 7 years. Jean met Leon Hahn in 1953 on a blind date set up by Leon’s sister, Ivalene. They were married Nov. 20, 1954. Jean and Leon lived in Gypsum until 1957 and then moved to the farm in rural Dickinson County, where they raised their family and worked side by side for the next 67 years. Jean helped raise chickens, pigs and cattle with Leon, as well as farming, increasing acreage over their decades of working together. Her artistic talents included painting, embroidery, and quilting. She also sang in the Gypsum United Methodist Church Choir for many years. Jean was a trusted school bus driver for the Southeast of Salina School District for 9 years, retiring once Leon was ready to travel the world. Their travels took them to all 50 states, as well as Germany, Austria, Belgium, Holland and Mexico.

Jean and Leon joined the Jolly Mixer’s Dance Club in Salina and were faithful weekly dancers for 34 years, until Jean’s health precluded further dancing four years ago. The multitude of friendships and memories that evolved from the Jolly Mixer’s had a lasting impact on Jeans’ retirement years.

Jean is survived by Leon, her husband of 69 years; daughter, Carol Shearer (John), daughter, Karla Demby (Brian); and son, Randy (Lori); eight grandchildren, Clayton, (Maggie), Mitchell Shearer, Ryan Hahn (Hannah), Jason Hahn (Rachel), Stephen Hahn, Max Demby (Courtney), Rachel Demby and Nicole Demby;
and 5 great grandchildren, Addyson and Coralie Shearer, Conley and Easton Hahn, and Blaine Hahn. She has one brother, Keith Jungel.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, April 4, 2024, at the Gypsum Community Church, Gypsum, KS, with the Rev. David Walters officiating. Burial will be in the Gypsum City Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5 until 7 pm Wednesday April 3, 2024 at the Ryan Mortuary, Salina.
