Norma Jean Magill of Baker City fell asleep in death in the privacy of her home on March 22, 2022.
Norma was born on August 10, 1936, in Bell, California. She married her childhood sweetheart, Donald Magill, on July 1, 1955, and they enjoyed 49 years together until his death in December 2004.
Norma was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses along with her husband in December 1957. They settled in Long Beach, California, where they raised their three daughters. She was a devoted wife and loving mother, unselfish and generous to others, and a zealous, faithful servant of Jehovah God. Norma spent many years as a full-time volunteer in the public ministry helping others to be better acquainted with the Bible and to come to know the only true God. She will always be remembered for her smile and sense of humor along with her positive, cheerful disposition.
Norma is survived by her three daughters, Lori Carrington (son-in-law Miles) of Middletown, NY, Lyndi Hutchinson of Grass Valley, CA, and Laree Snyder (son-in-law Marlin) of Baker City; granddaughters, Megan Walter (husband Bill) of Logan, Utah and Brandi Bybee of Graham, WA; brother Tom Smith (wife Sandy), nephews Daniel Smith and Scott Smith and their families.
