With heavy hearts we are announcing the passing of Sandra (Sandy) Norton, on June 28 at the Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, after an extremely brief and courageous battle with cancer, at the age of 62.
Survived by longtime partner, Russell Ellis. Beloved mother of Bill and Ken Norton of Guelph and stepsons Dereck & Mark Ellis of Guelph.
Daughter of Patricia G. King of Guelph and predeceased by her father William King (2004) and her daughter Crystal Norton-Boarder (2004).

Missed dearly by her sister Joanne (Tony) Wallace of Calgary, Terry (Sherry) King of Mossley, Jeff (Marjorie) King of Cambridge and Laura (Tony) Wong of Guelph. Fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and friends.
Up until Sandra's passing, she was an active employee of LPP Mfg (Linamar). Sandra was passionate about spending time with her family and always had time for her friends. She was extremely generous and kind hearted. She knew everyone's birthday as well as their anniversary, loved playing Bingo, and was also an avid Toronto Blue Jay, and Maple Leaf fan.
