CONNEAUT — Norma M. Morris, age 86, of Conneaut, Ohio, passed away Thursday evening, May 16, 2013, at Lake Pointe Rehab and Nursing Center in Conneaut.

Born Feb. 18, 1927, in Baltimore, Md., she was the daughter of George A. MacMillen and Norma Ruth (Ide) MacMillen. She graduated from Taylor Alderdice High School in Pittsburgh, Pa., and received her bachelor’s degree from PCW (now Chatham University).

She was employed by the West Hartford (CT) Public School System.

After retiring in 1979, Norma and her husband, George, built their retirement home next door to her sister, Joan M. Newcomb and her husband James C. Newcomb Jr. on Daniels Ave. in Conneaut, Ohio. The two families enjoyed raising beef cattle and growing and canning fruits and vegetables. Norma also loved to grow cutting flowers. Attractive flower arrangements often adorned her home.

She was an active member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ where she served on numerous committees including the flower committee and soup and sandwich luncheons. Norma served as head of Friends of the Conneaut Public Library and was recognized for outstanding support and service as a volunteer. Her favorite activity was as a participating member of the Library’s book discussion group. She was an avid reader, enjoying over 70 books a year. Norma was also a member of the Conneaut Quilters Guild and the Arts Center Quilters.

Norma was a devoted wife of 65 years, marrying her high school sweetheart, George on June 19, 1948. In addition to reading and quilting, she enjoyed watching Public Television programs and movies, gardening, and cooking. She also had a great interest in British history.

Norma is survived by her husband, George J. Morris of Conneaut, Ohio; and three sons, Richard C. (Margaret) Morris of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Jeffrey D. (Susan) Morris of East Stroudsburg, Pa. and Ronald E. (Susan) Morris of Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; six grandchildren, Michael, Margaret, Peter, David, Christopher and Kimberly; and one great-granddaughter, Greta; nieces and nephews, Robert, Paul and Scott Morris, James, Janet and Judy Newcomb (Grotsky), and Duncan, David and Mary Cameron (Danka).
