Norah K. Alston, 95

Former Wilton teacher Norah K. Alston died Saturday, June 27, 2015, in Danbury Hospital. She was born Norah Kathleen Atkinson in Monroe, Iowa, on Sept. 11, 1919 to Reginald Graham Atkinson and Daisy Geraldine Garrett.
She is survived by her son Michael and his son Garrett; as well as her son Jeremy and his wife Debbie, their two daughters, Heather Mitchell and Kristen, and one great-grandson, Vincent.             
Norah led a full life in which she was an English and speech teacher, drama club adviser and senior show director. She received much of her education in England and graduated with a master of arts from NYU.
During WW II she was in the army as part of the ambulance corps in London during the Battle of Britain.  Later she directed and performed shows for the troops.
She traveled across most of Europe, America and Mexico. During the summer of 1972 she fulfilled her  dream of traveling to Greece and seeing the Greek theater.  Upon retiring, she took a trip around the world, seeing much of the Far East and visiting with several of the foreign exchange students she had known in Wilton.
“Norah will be significantly missed by all whom had the pleasure of knowing her,” her family said.
Due to her wishes no services will be held.
