Emma Noreace Kaschke

Emma Noreace Spencer Kaschke was born December 10, 1924, to Jesse Bailey Spencer and Hazel Holiman Spencer in Prattsville, Arkansas.  Noreace learned to hunt, fish and cook for her family of seven at an early age.  Her dad also taught her to do carpentry, as that was his trade.

Her family moved a lot during the depression and by the age of 18 her family was located in Sheridan, Arkansas.  There she met Dale Kaschke, who was stationed at the army base nearby during WWII. Shortly after meeting Dale, they were married by a Justice of the Peace.  

They moved to NE Colorado to work on the Moore's Creek Ranch owned by Dale's dad.  Dale and Noreace moved to Denver two years later.  Noreace worked at the Gate's Rubber Company sewing the seats for the B-12 Bomber for the war effort.  She also worked at Nuesteters as a model because she looked a lot like Elizabeth Taylor. 

Dale and Noreace had four daughters: Diana Lynn born in 1946, Patricia Lucille born in 1948, Virginia Sue born in 1952, and Shirley Ann born in 1964.

Dale and Noreace started Englewood Littleton Plumbing Company where Noreace, as a co-owner, did the calls and the book work.  On weekends the family was active with camping, hunting, and fishing as well as many winter sports.  They also enjoyed ballroom dancing and square dancing.  They were very active at church and enjoyed the "young at heart" group in their church at Valley View. 

When they retired from their business, they continued their adventures by travelling with "Ports-a-Call" with friends to such destinations as Mexico, Ireland, England, New Zealand, Hawaii, China, Japan and the Bahamas.  

Dale and Noreace were married for 73 years, and have several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Noreace has one sister and is preceded in death by her daughter Virginia, granddaughter Leslie and her husband Dale.  

She was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed by all.
