Obituary for Norma Jean Miller Deacon Hitt

August 12, 1939 - July 14, 2017
McHenry, Illinois | Age 77


Norma Jean Miller Deacon Hitt, age 77 of McHenry, passed away serenely and peacefully in Woodstock, IL enfolded in the love of her family.
Norma was born August 12, 1939, in St. Louis, MO. She spent her early years in Missouri and moved to Libertyville, IL in 1952. She graduated from Libertyville High School and went immediately to work for Metropolitan Life, where she spent her career. On March 19, 1986, she married Robert W. Hitt, and that union joined her with a large and loving family. Norma was the loving center of the Hitt family, and the children, and later grandchildren, were the center of her universe. Norma was the definition of unconditional love, and her kindness to people and animals knew no bounds.
Norma is survived by her devoted children: Thomas (Linda) Hitt, Sally Kupres, Don Hitt, Cathy (Greg) Lessard, and Dani Gorman; dear grandchildren: Meredith (Craig) Berry, Andrea (Thomas) Sullivan, Jennifer and Chassadie Kruse, Sarah and Kory Kupres, and Maija, Michelle, and Michael Hitt; and cherished great-grandchildren: Dallas, Piper, Graydon, Alivia, and Brennen. She is also survived by nieces and nephews. She is further survived by her sister, Diane (Brian Hlavaty) Deacon; brother, Stanley (Evelyn) Braibish; and very special friend, Amy Lynn Brock.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert; parents, Harry and Lenora Deacon; mother, Vera Miller; granddaughter, Melissa DuBois; and brother, Ronald Deacon.
