Carol Jean Norton, 75, of Mokena, passed away at Palos Heights Hospital on December 25, 2022. She was born on March 8, 1947 in Chicago, the daughter of the late Howard Francis and Ora Verne (nee Pittaway) Norton.

Carol graduated from Dwight D. Eisenhower High School in Blue Island and earned a B.A. in Elementary Education from Illinois State University in Normal Illinois. She enjoyed teaching and enriching the lives of youth. She was most recently a part time substitute teacher.

Carol had a love for Mary Kay cosmetics. She was a devoted Mary Kay Consultant. She enjoyed traveling to Mary Kay conventions where she could meet new people and learn about the new products being offered.
