Marguerite Lois Norbut

March 25, 1951 - June 30, 2022

Marguerite Lois Norbut, 71, of Poulsbo, WA unexpectedly passed away while vacationing in Hawaii June 30th, 2022. Marguerite was born March 25th, 1951 in Bremerton, Washington, the daughter of the late Henry and Joan Glenn. She was the youngest of two daughters. Marguerite was the beloved wife of Gregory Norbut for over 42 years and the loving mother to her children, Scott Whipff (Lisa), Christopher Brown (Amber), and Adam Norbut (Sari) and Rachael Norbut Morgan.

She was also a devoted Grandmother. She loved them all so much; Violet Jean Morgan Norbut, Brandon, Katelynn and Emmit Brown, Scott and Henry Whipff, Zachary, Matthew, Gregory, Ethan and Liam Norbut and Great Grandson, Nathaniel Norbut.

Marguerite is survived by her husband, Gregory Norbut, her sister Kathryn Gates and cousins Cynthia Holsather, Lisa Schofield and John Schofield. Marg spent the majority of her “too-short life” living in the North Kitsap area. She worked tirelessly to help her husband and family in all ways that will make her missed beyond comprehension. Among her many accomplishments, she successfully built a home in Kingston, acting as General Contractor while helping manage her husband, Gregory’s law office.

Marg seemed to easily tackle any job. It didn’t matter if it involved creating, remodeling or designing a home for her family. On top of that she helped with the accounting at the office. She did it all with a smile. Her initiative and positive attitude made her truly unique.

Marg especially enjoyed gardening. She had an eye when it came to landscape design and with the aid of a green thumb her homes were transformed into beautiful gardens with brilliant colors and shades.

With a love of the beautiful surroundings of the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula, Marg loved to spend time hiking and exploring with her family. She also loved to fish and cruise the waters of Puget Sound and beyond.

Marg shared her love of good food and the ability to provide the best holiday gathering for her friends and family. She was spirited and a little bossy and we loved that about her. All of us will keep that special spirit living on by celebrating her love for her family and friends and appreciating all that she gave to everyone.

Her strength, sense of humor and deep love for her family make it seem impossible to move on without her. Knowing her high expectations of us all, however, we as a family will do our best to live the way she would want.

A Celebration of Marguerite’s life will be held for the family in the Fall, and remembrances in her name may be made to the charity of your choice.
