On Thursday, Sept. 13, 2001, our little mother passed away peacefully in her sleep after battling cancer and strokes. Her courage far surpassed her small structure.
Maurine was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 30, 1923 to Olive S. Rawle and Harold J. Martin Sr. Graduated from East High School. Married Richard Norgaard May 31, 1946 in Salt Lake City and their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. They raised four children together.
Maurine is survived by her children Susan (Terry) Pendley, Joan Norgaard Barton, Scott (Becky) Norgaard and Tod J. Norgaard, a brother Harold J.(Joy) Martin Jr., and her eight grandchildren Travis Pendley, Jared Pendley, Tracee Barton, Jeff Barton, Kellie Barton, Cody Barton, Andrew Norgaard and Robert Norgaard. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Norgaard, brother Gale R. Martin, and her parents.
Her greatest joys were found in both her immediate and extended family. Her favorite pastimes were cooking for her family and traveling. Favorite travel destinations were Disneyland, Hawaii and Europe. Her loving spirit and unique sense of humor will be missed, but the memory of her life will always be with us. A special thanks to the staff and many friends at the Inn on Barton Creek.
Graveside services will be held Monday, September 17th at 12 noon at the Salt Lake City Cemetery, 11th Avenue the far east entrance. Friends may call Sunday, September 16th , 2001 from 6-8 p.m. at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple. Interment, Salt Lake City Cemetery.
