Pamela Norton

Born: 08/08/1958 Passed:

Pamela (Pam) Norton (nee Coughlin), 57, from Canton, was born August 8, 1958 and passed away peacefully after a challenging battle with mitochondrial disease on August 16, 2015.    A 1976 Green High School graduate, she attended the University of Akron.  When able she attended St. Peter’s Church in Canton.

Despite the adversity of dealing with decades of her own serious health challenges, she lived her life as an unselfish caregiver to her mother and sister.   Her kind heart, great sense of humor and attitude were always contagious.  As a woman of deep faith and wisdom she was always there, ready to listen, and to give the best advice whenever she was needed, to those closest to her. Pam loved dancing, and the elegance of high style.

‎Pam was preceded in death by James (father) and Norma (mother) Coughlin (Presley)  as well as Michelle (sister) Maurer. She is survived by her brothers Jim (Mary) Coughlin of Wisconsin, Mike (Kay) Coughlin of Colorado, her sister Monica Weider of Alliance, and several nieces and nephews.

‎Pam lives on in the hearts of many dear Friends that will miss her smile, laugh, and words of wisdom.  Of those Friends, Pam would say that she did not know how she would have gotten through so many of life’s trials without them.

A Gathering to Celebrate Pam’s  Life will be held on Oct.1st, 2015, beginning at 5:30, at JRC Apartments (formerly St. Paul’s Senior Housing), 1732 Market Ave N., North Canton, Ohio.

    I knew Pam as a very loving and funny woman who was always very giving of herself. I can only hope her loving spirit follows me for decades to come.

  2. Lora Weider says:

    I have known Pam for 16 years and have felt like she was part of my family! We have shared many great memories and a few sad memories. I will miss our talks and the way she always helped at tenant functions. She had a contagious laugh and cared deeply for people around her. I believe in my heart that God told her it was time for her to be cared for instead of her caring for everyone else around her. You are truly missed Pam! May you rest in peace! I love you Pam!

  3. Ron Shultz says:

    Extremely saddened to learn of Pam’s passing. Pam has always held a special place in my heart and always will. We became close friends in High School and even closer after graduation. Unfortunately, life brings many twists and turns and eventually we weren’t able to remain in contact which has always left an empty spot in my spirit. May God’s mercy, grace, forgiveness and love wrap you and sustain you throughout eternity Pam. You are loved and greatly missed.

    So very sad to hear the news of Pam’s passing. She and I graduated high school together and sang in the Ensemble together. My memory of her was always one of her smiling or laughing, or both! She and I lost touch soon after high school but judging by the posts, she was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Rest in peace dear classmate. May our next reunion be in heaven.
