Susan Jill (Christianson) Norton, 66, of Black River Falls, WI passed away on June 7, 2021 at Black River Memorial Hospital.
Susan was born August 24, 1954 in Black River Falls to Leo and Edna (Gunderson) Christianson. She married James Norton on May 16, 1981 in Alexandria, Virginia and they recently celebrated 40 years of marriage.
Susan was a graduate of Black River Falls High School and member of Evangelical Lutheran Church. While she was no stranger to personal battles and challenges, she managed to generously devote her time in service of others. She nurtured those hurting and struggling around her through her service to the church, Jackson County Treatment Court, and local Alcoholic Anonymous community. Through it all, she brought joy. She was known for her sense of humor and ability to make people laugh. She was good to her core and our world has become a little dimmer without her warm light.
Susan is survived by her husband James Norton; three daughters Katherine (Jesse) Frost, Rachel, and Hannah; a brother Gary Christianson.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Edna Christianson; her brother Randy Christianson and sister Sharon Christianson.
