Prestage-DeathAugust 29, 1937 – March 31, 2015
Norita (“Toad”) passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at her home in Sudbury. Norita grew up in Gordon Township and was the elder daughter of the late Bert and Annie (MacDougall) Best. Norita was married for 56 years to the late Doug (“Eddie”) Prestage. Norita taught for 30 years at Falconbridge Public School, and since retirement has divided her time between Sudbury and a summer home in Kagawong. Norita loved to cook, and loved to entertain but above all else loved her role as a Gramma. Norita is survived by her son J.A., her daughter-in-law Lisa Goodmurphy and her beloved granddaughters Katie and Emma. She will be missed by her sister Nickie (Art) Hinds, her special cousin Betty-Lou Purvis, and an extended group of friends and family.

Memorial donations to Lyons Memorial United Church or charity of choice would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Culgin Funeral Home, Gore Bay.
