Norma R. Noyes Obituary
Craftsbury - Norma (Rich) Noyes died on October 7, 2017. Norma was a resident of Craftsbury Community Care Center in Craftsbury, VT where she was much loved for the past five years. She was the fourth child of Maxwell and May (Elwell) Rich, born on May 15, 1920 in North Bennington, VT. Norma graduated from North Bennington High School in 1937. She continued her education at Green Mountain College until marrying Harry. Harry and Norma lived in various Vermont communities until 1978, when they started spending winters in Ocala, Florida. They returned to Vermont permanently a few years ago. She was a member of the North Bennington Congregational Church. Norma had a wonderfully witty sense of humor and a bit of a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate and coffee ice cream. Norma loved music and always appreciated a good "program." She enjoyed all animals, spending her time watching the many visitors at her birdfeeder. She was quite pleased with how well behaved her husky "Nip" was. Norma had a fertile imagination and always saw things no one else would notice; this may explain her fascination with odd-shaped stones!

Norma was predeceased by her husband Harry (whom she married June 21, 1940 in North Bennington) and siblings Kendall, Helen, and Francis. She leaves sons Allan Noyes and wife Anna Robillard of Ludlow, MA, William Noyes and wife Becky of Keene, NH, James Noyes and wife Doreen of Hyde Park, VT, Robert Noyes and wife Amy of Chesterfield, NH and Richard Noyes and wife Katherine of Conway, AR; 13 grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren.

A private graveside service will be held in the Hinsdillville cemetery. During her last years, Norma received extraordinary care while living at CCCC, and memorial gifts in memory of Norma may be made to the Craftsbury Community Care Center, 1784 E. Craftsbury Road, Craftsbury, VT 05826. To send the family personal condolences, please visit www.sheafuneralhomes.com.
