The Guest Book is expired.

Norma Jean Miner, loving and beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and long-time Acton, resident, passed from this life on the morning of Sunday, Oct. 10, 2010, at a hospital in Murray, Utah, less than three days after suffering a sudden aortic dissection in Park City, her home town for the past four years. Born on April 11, 1928, in Brockville, Ontario, Canada, Norma met and married her beloved partner-for-life, Richard, while working in Toronto in 1958. Norma and Dick subsequently spent 31 years of their married life in Massachusetts, mainly in Acton, while raising their family. They later moved to Hilton Head Island, S.C., in 1992 and then on to Park City in 2006. Always a giving and caring person, Norma continued to cultivate and cherish her many new friendships, leading a busy life in Park City, and singing in the church choir in Salt Lake City. With Dick she continued to pursue their love of national and international travel and a wide variety of theatrical productions and concerts. Above all, Normas immediate family continued to be a constant source of pride, love, joy and excitement for her. In Park City, daughter Carol Snyder and grandsons David and Adam have provided many thrilling moments, especially on the high school baseball fields, Olympic ski jumps and local theaters. On those special trips each year to Concord, to be with son Bob, lovely wife Kathy, and granddaughters Kim and Gayle, she has relished being immersed in their lives for a while, especially on softball fields and basketball courts. Besides her husband, children and grandchildren, Norma is survived by two nieces in Canada and many nieces and nephews in this country. She is preceded in death by her only sibling, Bill Hinton, and by a young son, Roger. With her active, loving and caring life ending much too soon, she will be greatly missed by her family and her friends, both young and old. A service celebrating Normas life will be held at the Church of the Good Shepherd Episcopal, Newtown Road, Acton, on Friday, Oct. 22, at 11 a.m., followed by interment in the family plot at Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellesley. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in her memory to the .
