Obituary of Martha "Martie" Holman Norton

Martha “Martie” Holman Norton, Age 93, passed away on May 29th, surrounded by family. She was born in St. Paul and graduated from Summit School. She raised her family in St. Paul, before moving to Sunfish Lake, which became the center of the family’s universe along with the family cabin on the St Croix River. Martha’s interests included politics, public policy, gardening, the arts, genealogy, and the outdoors.  She was chairman of the St. Paul Planning Commission, a leader in numerous political campaigns and established an art studio for her peers. Her greatest passion was spending time with her family. Forever a creator, Martha was constantly working on DIY projects with her grandchildren. She is survived by her children Cynthia (John III) Tocho, Jeff (Shannon) Norton and Katie (John Herrman) Norton. Grandchildren, Alyson and John IV Tocho, Pierce (Tessa) Norton, Jacqueline, (Will) Wierzba, Iliana Herrman and great grandsons, Palmer and Quinn Norton.  A celebration of life will be held in her honor at a later date.
