We were saddened to read of Mrs. Norton‘s passing. She was a ray of sunshine to three of our children who participated in her preschool program at CASH. She provided an early education too many young children and did so with a smile and grace every day. The program, over the years, surely  had to have influenced a number of high school students to enter teaching careers as well.  Our prayers are with your family. She will be finally remembered.
