Obituary

LINDA SUE BAUGHAN NORTON of Washington DC died January 26, 2021 from complications of acute leukemia. She was born on October 15, 1948 in Richmond VA to Jackson Baughan and Margaret Loving Brown Baughan. She received a BA degree in Art from Lynchburg College in 1970 and taught art in the Lynchburg and Albemarle County Public Schools for three years. She married her husband Randell Hunt Norton in 1972. They moved to Capitol Hill DC in 1975, where they restored a vintage row house. They lived together on Capitol Hill for 45 years and raised two sons, Jackson and Thomas, both of whom were educated in the DC Public Schools.

In DC Linda worked as an interior designer for many years before retiring to focus on her art. She was an accomplished artist, painting in watercolors and pastels, with many of her works accepted in juried art shows and receiving awards. She was an active member of the Wednesday Studio, a group of skilled artists and friends who met at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW). She was a member of the Capitol Hill Art League and the Arts Council of the Shenandoah Valley as well as other arts groups. She loved the theater and appeared on stage in a several CHAW plays and musicals as well as serving as costume and set designer. She was one of the founders of the Theater Alliance in DC. She sang with a “girl group,” the Jaynettes, for many years, performing “vintage music by vintage women.” She served in many leadership and support roles with the Capitol Hill Babysitting Co-op, the Capitol Hill Cooperative Nursery School, the Capitol Hill Cluster Schools, the Capitol Hill Classic race, CHAW, Wilson High School Crew, and Capitol Hill Village. She was a devoted member of Christ Church Capitol Hill. In 2010 she built her dream mountain house near Broadway, VA where she would get away and paint.

In addition to her husband and sons, Linda is survived by her sister Cynthia Baughan Wheaton, her grandson Henry and her daughter-in-law Jennifer Christenson Norton. Memorial gifts can be sent to Christ Church; to the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, where Linda performed and painted for so many years; to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation, which funds so many deserving projects on Linda's beloved Capitol Hill; or to the Theater Alliance. A memorial service at Christ Church will be held in 2021 when it is safe to gather again in person.
