Myron E. “Sonny” Norton, 90, of New Salem, passed away Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at Elm Crest Manor. In accordance with Sonny’s wishes, a private family funeral will be held at Peace Church in New Salem with graveside services to follow.

Myron was born November 27, 1929, the son of William and Martha (Westmeyer) Norton. As a young boy, he attended school through the eighth grade. Sonny married Mable Bumann on September 7, 1950 at Peace Church in New Salem. The couple were blessed with six children.

Sonny and Mable made their home on the family farm south of town. They enjoyed working side by side on the farm running beef cattle, milking cows and raising their family. Dad was the happiest on the farm and could always be heard whistling while he worked.

Sonny loved the land and the farm and enjoyed working with wood making his own toys as a young boy, making carts and wagons for horses, building his own invention for moving and stacking bales in the hay barn,
and building and remodeling. Dad also enjoyed reading the newspaper while chewing on a toothpick.

Sonny is survived by his children; sons, Brad (Mona), Jess (Lynnae), Todd (Debbie); daughters, Lisa (Steve) Kleinjan; Shelly Pletan; and daughter-in-law, Gale Norton all of New Salem; 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren; sisters, Glenda Kaelberer and Marlene Bethke of New Salem.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Martha; wife, Mable; son, Kevin Norton, and grandson-in-law Scott Vigestad.

Dear Family: So sorry about Sonny. I got to know him when I worked as the Social Worker Designee at Elm Crest Manor. He was such a gentle soul. He will be missed by so many especially you, his loving family. I remember at one activity when we had a petting zoo come in with my nephew’s farm animals and he had a young calf. Myron hugged & petted that calf the whole time it was there - which was well over an hour. I also remember him attending some of the activities that we didn’t know would even interest him. May he Rest In Peace now with Mable.
Jo Hoger, New Salem.
