Karen Norton

July 30, 1949 — April 23, 2024

Karen L. Norton, age 74, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at ThedaCare Medical Center in Neenah due to a fall. She was born to the late Fred and Muriel (Woodstruck) Schrauth on July 30, 1949 in Fond Du Lac. Karen married Tom Norton in 1971.

Karen attended Oskhosh High School. In 2010, after a 41 year career at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Karen retired. Karen's retirement years brought her great joy, as she was able to spend time with family and friends. Her fondest moments included trips to Door County, traveling the Great River Road and wintering in Pensacola Beach, Florida with her husband.

Karen is survived by her husband, Tom; sons, Ryan (Kelly) Norton and Eric Norton; grandchildren, Riley, Quinn, Hailee, and Soren; great-granddaughter Chloe; sisters Gail (Al) Beyer, Susie (Wayne) Youngworth, and Julie (John) Nicks.

Per Karen's wishes a Cremation has taken place and a private service will be held. In lieu of flowers, a donation to PBS (Public Broadcasting Station) Wisconsin can be made.
