Norma Jean (Wetherbee) Lovett, 67, of Francis Street died June 24, 2021 at home surrounded by her family. She was born in St. Petersburg, FL on November 18, 1953, the daughter of Linwood and Alice (Smith) Wetherbee. She graduated from Frontier Regional high school class of 1971.
Norma spent twenty five years as an administrative assistant at the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office until her retirement in 2019. Prior to that, she was employed at Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance for twenty one years.
Norma loved her family and friends more than anything. Her favorite pastimes were shopping, and game nights with the girls, especially bunco. She loved her morning unsweetened iced tea (with two lemons) from Dunkin and scratching her lotto tickets. After retirement Norma especially enjoyed catching up with friends over lunch.
Her family was such an important part of her life and Sunday dinners were something she looked forward to every week. She loved her grandchildren and was their biggest fan. She could always be found at the rink or at the ballpark cheering loudly.
Norma was a huge advocate of fundraising and spent many years helping the community. She was on the committee to light Vet’s Field and also ran the Warm the Children Golf Tournament for eleven years. Norma was known for helping others and was always the first one to be there in a time of need.
Norma had a love and passion for youth sports. She was the Treasurer and President of the Greenfield Minor League for over ten years. She was the High School Hockey Parents Association President for two years and Treasurer for ten years. She served on the Franklin County Hockey Association board in various roles for over ten years.
