Donald “Donnie” O. Norton was born December 27, 1936 and left us to be with our Lord on March 27, 2012. He passed away peacefully at his home at the Angel Cottage with his friends and family by his side. Don was one of our special people and will be remembered by all who knew him, from his days of delivering wood with his wagon and riding his bike on the streets of Priest River. Some of us will remember him best from the winter days standing patiently with a scoop shovel in his hands waiting for his nieces and nephew and their cousins to get the snow cat stuck so that he could rescue them once again. And how about the many times he decided he wanted to go to town so he would hike from his home in Squaw Valley or from the top of Granit Pass to Priest River, a day’s work, WOW! Don is survived by his brother Lowell and his wife Carol Norton of Sandpoint, nephew Lowell and wife Annette Norton of Diamond Lake, Washington, nieces Lorrie and husband Fred Marienau of Oldtown, Idaho, Annette Carr of Sandpoint, Idaho and numerous great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; Owen and Zella Norton. A private family celebration of Donnie’s life will take place at a later date. Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Newport is in charge of arrangements. Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at
