Alma L. Norton

Alma L. Norton, 90, of Galway, passed away on Friday, December 4, 2020 at St. Mary’s Healthcare.

Alma was the daughter of the late Nelson and Lina Harrington. She was born on April 15, 1930, in Glens Falls.

Alma was a dedicated and hard worker at Angelica Industrial Laundry in Ballston Spa for 25 years until she retired in the late 80s.

Her favorite pastime was being surrounded by family and being a grandma and great-grandma to everyone. Alma enjoyed embroidery work, word searches and watching soap operas.

Alma was a member of the Providence Baptist Church for 22 years and was the bell ringer every Sunday morning, and would make coffee for other members.

Alma knew how to liven up a room, could make anyone laugh and put a smile on a stranger’s face. She was well loved by friends and family and will be dearly missed by all.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Albert Norton; her sister, Mary Kelly; her daughter, Viola Colson; her granddaughter Gloria Westcott; and great grandson Nicholas Norton.

Alma is survived by her children Nelson Norton (Elaine); Gloria Westcott; 14 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren; 14 great-great grandchildren; and two nieces.

Due to COVID-19, services will be held on a later date at the Providence Baptist Church at 7153 Fish House Road, Galway NY, 12074.

In lieu of flowers, make donations to Providence Volunteer Fire Department at P.O. Box 222, Galway NY, 12074.
