Ethel Eileen Norr

Ethel Eileen Norr, of Jackson, CA, passed away at the age of 82 on Sunday, July 14, 2019.  She was born in Park Ridge, IL on September 9, 1936 to the late Minnie (Wiele) and Lynn Mortensen.

She felt fortunate to retire to her dream home, where she enjoyed a fantastic view and a wonderful craft studio.  She enjoyed crafting, spending time with friends and family, traveling, square dancing, and loved her companion, Smokey the cat.

Ethel is survived by her two sons, Thomas Norr and his wife Pamela of Medford, OR, and Steven Norr of Lancaster, CA; grandchildren, Christopher, Garrett, Marten, and Jaymee; and great grandchildren, Emma, Samuel, and Elias.  She was preceded in death by her husband of fifty-eight years, Gilbert, in 2014; and brothers, Edward and Earl.
