Please share a memory of Norma to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Norma Alison Kitchen (nee Elsworthy) passed peacefully in her home at the age of 94, on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, surrounded by family after a battle with breast cancer. Norma was born Dec. 22, 1926 in Toronto, daughter of William and Lena (nee Davey) Elsworthy. Predeceased by siblings Bruce(Ruth), Dorothy (John) Dempster, Lena (Harry) Houle, Jack (Lena). She moved to Milton at the age of 10. She leaves behind her loving husband of 75 years, Bruce; children: Paul (Shirley) of Milton, Kevin (Karen) of Oklahoma, and Kerry (predeceased). Loved by her grandchildren Mike (Erika) of Burlington, Blair (predeceased) (Rochelle) of Carlisle, Brian of Victoria, BC, Laurie Dietrich (Shawn) of Milton, Jeff of Toronto, Brad (Amanda), Carolynn (Bobby) of Oklahoma, Cortney (David) of Utah, and Lauren (Wil) of Utah; and “Nana” to 14 great-grandchildren and counting. Having built a cottage on the north shore of Lake Simcoe in 1965, she will also be missed by seasonal friends and neighbours. Norma had fond memories of train rides back to the city (Toronto), riding bicycles around town and even to the shore of Lake Ontario as a youth and roller skating down Main Street. Married at the age of 18 to Bruce, she worked on the Lancaster Bombers during WWII. She was employed as a Bell operator, worked for Eaton's and volunteered for a number of charities and very active in her church. The couple built their home on Lydia Ave when they were just 22. They were one of the first households on their block to own a television, which they purchased to watch the Queen’s Coronation. She was a charter member of the Milton Curling Club completing 50 years of active curling. She was active in the IODE and an avid Euchre player, and remained a challenging (and often dominating) opponent in Scrabble up until her final days. Norma often reminded us that “luck looks a lot like damned hard work”.A private service will be held outdoors at Milton Evergreen Cemetery Monday, January 18, 2021 In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Salvation Army, Grace Anglican Church Milton or the charity of your choice.
