Nora Elaine Hart, 80, a long-time Sunset resident, passed away peacefully on Monday morning, June 12, 2023, at Rocky Mountain Care of Clearfield, surrounded by her loving family. A few days shy of her 81st birthday, Nora was born on June 19, 1942, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, the second child of Thomas Howell and Kathryn Elizabeth McClintock Prince.
Raised and schooled in Canada, Nora was visiting her aunt in Michigan in 1961 when she met her future husband, Dallas Wilfred Hart, whose brother was married to Nora’s cousin. They began courting and were married on October 28, 1962, in Puce, Ontario, Canada. Dallas, serving at that time in the United States Air Force, was transferred to the Philippines and Nora was able to join him there a few months later. Their first child, a son, William “Bill” Dallas, was born to them. Their family increased in number along with subsequent duty station transfers, to include New Jersey, Texas, and lastly, Utah.
Nora and Dallas settled and raised their family in Utah, comprising, after Bill, Mary Kathryn, Laurie Anne, and Nancy Elizabeth.
Nora was a devoted wife and loving mother, who excelled as a stay-at-home mom. She enjoyed gardening, canning, camping and fishing. Nora had a great sense of humor and a lovely, dry ‘British wit’ about her. She was a lover of quilting, sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She enjoyed making hats and gloves which she lovingly donated to local schools and shelters. She was honored by the Governor’s office for her charitable works.
She also loved to read, and enjoyed whatever books she could get her hands on. She was dedicated, supportive, loving and kind, a good example to her family and a rare gem of a woman. Nora will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Nora is survived by her husband of 60 years, Dallas W. Hart, Sunset; children, W. “Bill” Dallas (Tami) Hart, Clearfield; Mary Kathryn (Ernie Kasuske) Hart, Corona, SD; Laurie Anne Merritt, Butte, MT; and Nancy Elizabeth Hart, Sunset; ten grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren; siblings, Donald (Judy) Prince, Nancey (George) Tarcea, and Leonard (Paula) Prince, all of Ontario, Canada; and by many nieces, nephews, and greats.
Nora was preceded in death by her parents and by her brother, Richard Prince, who passed away in the service of the Canadian Military.
A private Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends at the family home in Nora’s honor. Arrangements entrusted to Lindquist Ogden Mortuary.
