Deborah Norton Obituary, Death – Deborah A. Norton passed away at University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri. She was born on November 21, 1952, in Sedalia, the daughter of Harry Herman Stout and Vivian Juanita (Shoe) Stout, who passed away before her.
On October 10, 1970, in Sedalia, she wed Kenneth Norton, who currently resides in the home.
Miss Debbie and Grandmother were the titles she valued the most while being proud to be called a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. The generations of youngsters she helped raise and love via her daycare will be her enduring legacy. She also taught and served as an example of LOVE for her husband, two daughters, nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
Her love was infinite, pure, and unrelenting. She had a strong respect for her family and her traditions. She continued to have Sunday dinners with the Stout family after her mother passed away. There was no requirement that one be a blood relative to attend Sunday meal. If you required a seat at the table, you were treated like family.
She loved hanging out with her friends. They were always at the top of her list of priorities. She might even refuse to answer her cell phone on certain times in order to protect her kids! She was successful in convincing Kenny to join her in turning her love of travel into an annual family event. Also, we mean SHE when we speak of an event. There are numerous stories about Debbie at the beach.
They both loved spending as much time as they could with their growing family and taking pleasure in seeing it develop. No one has ever or will ever perform LOVE more effectively. Deborah is survived by her husband, two children, Wade Norton (Jennifer) of Sedalia and Angie Richardson (Daniel) of Hughesville; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two brothers; Gary Stout of Marshall, Missouri, and Tony Stout (Julie) of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; and two sisters, Phyllis Grace of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; and four great-grandchildren (Charlie)
