1975 – 2020
Chepachet, Rhode Island – Jasmine E. Norton, 45, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Born in Hamilton, Bermuda on October 25, 1975, she was the daughter of Paul J. Norton and Hannelore (Fulton) Wiik.
Jasmine graduated Summa Cum Laude from Quinebaug Valley Community College in 1997, earning her Associate’s degree in Accounting. She went on to work as an accountant and bookkeeper for many years.
Jasmine enjoyed Madonna, broadway musicals, gardening, antiquing and yard sales, and according to her mother, “she was always looking for good deals.” She was forever a cat lover, and will finally see Nosey and Snoopy once again. She loved watching The King of Queens, and reminiscing over photo albums and home videos with her family. In her free time, her favorite thing to do was spend time with her two girls.
Jasmine had such a presence in any room she walked into; she was beautiful, funny and very smart, with a heart of gold. She was the most selfless individual – always the first to offer help to others, even at times when she had very little. Her drive and determination were an inspiration to many, and her positive energy was infectious to all who knew her.
In addition to her parents and stepfather John Wiik, Jasmine is survived by her daughters: Kayla H. Norton and her fiancé Dylan Gendreau of Moosup, Connecticut, and Carly J. Millette of Woodstock, Connecticut. She is also survived by her brother Joshua Norton of Norwich, Connecticut, her grandmother Elisabeth Fulton of North Grosvenordale, Connecticut, and her dearest friend Lisa N’Chonon of Pomfret Center, Connecticut. She also leaves behind countless aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Jasmine’s family from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Gilman Funeral Home located at 104 Church St., in Putnam, Connecticut.
