Jacqueline Norton,90, of Natick and formerly of Hopkinton, passed away on Wednesday, July 5, 2023. Born in Natick, she was the daughter of the late Josephine (Langevin) and Adelard Thibault.
Jackie, as she was known by all, was an avid sports fan. There was not a sport she would not watch on TV; whether it be baseball, hockey, football, golf, tennis, curling…you name it, she watched it. Not only did she watch sports, she played a lot of sports in her younger days. She even had her own golf clubs and bowling balls. In high school, she played every sport that girls were allowed to play at the time and she graduated from Natick high school being the captain of every girl’s team.
Jackie had a deep never-ending love for her family. She is survived by two daughters, Darlene Haines and her husband, Barry Haines Sr. of Hopkinton, Jackie Norton and her partner, Ed Grant of Hopkinton; her grandchildren, Barry Haines Jr.,(Debbie), Jennifer Morse (Chris), Kristina Gallerani (Ryan Powers,) Richard W. Norton III (Sharon); and her great-grandchildren, Lily Norton, Giana Gallerani, Charlotte and Mackenzie Morse, and Richard W. Norton IV. She was predeceased by her son, Richard W. Norton Jr., and her former husband, Richard W. Norton Sr.
