Carmie Egger, 81, died November 10, 2021, at her home in Omaha, Nebraska. Carmie was born June 29, 1940, in Omaha to Gus and Theresa Lombardo. She attended South High School, and upon graduation, went to an employment agency which sent her to a company called Lueder Construction. Little did Carmie know, she would spend the next 58 years at Lueder.
Carmie spent 48 wonderful years with her husband, Norrie, before his passing in 2009. She and Norrie enjoyed many music-filled weekends at the 64 Club, Mr. C’s, and the VFW, just to name a few. Much of Carmie’s pride stemmed from the life and family her and Norrie built together with their daughter, Noreen.
Carmie loved listening to big band music, watching golf and Husker football. She had a big heart, devoting much of her time and energy as a caregiver to family members, including her mother until she passed away at age 89. Carmie adored her great-grandchildren and loved to spoil them every chance she got.
Carmie was preceded in death by her husband, Norrie; parents, Gus and Theresa Lombardo; sister and brother-in-law, Katherine and Tony Couvillion; grandnephew, Dan Poly. She is survived by daughter and son-in-law Noreen (Egger) and Jeff Thelen; grandchildren: Nicki (Thelen) and Cale Deardorff, Jessie (Thelen) and Ricky Henry, and Jena (Thelen) and Carter Purdy; great-grandchildren: Mason, Mia, and Kinlee Deardorff, Weston and Ayla Henry, and Logan Purdy; nieces and nephews: Lynn (Couvillion) and Dennis Poly, Julie (Couvillion) and Glenn Peterson, Karen (Couvillion) and Bruce Goracke, Pam (Couvillion) and Scott Bennett, and Mike and Stacey Couvillion; and many grandnieces and grandnephews.
