She was born in Marlborough, the daughter of the late Arthur N. and Anna V. (Sears) Fortin, and was the wife of the late Leonidas “Mike” Normandin, who died in 1958. She was educated at St. Anthony's School and the Marlborough Schools.
She is survived by her sister, Phyllis I. Tremblay and her husband Leonard of Marlborough, and many nieces and nephews. She was also the sister of the late Flora Jolie, Lorraine Losapio, and Robert Fortin.
She was employed for many years at the Curtis and Corbin Shoe factories in Marlborough, and was well known for her service at the Shopper's World Jordan Marsh Company, Framingham, where she worked part time in the ladies dress department. After retiring from the shoe trade, she worked for Digital Equipment Corp. at the Maynard Mill as a quality inspector in the acid etching department.
She had been a member of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Marlborough, the former Marlborough Woman's Club, and the Marlborough Historical Society; was a volunteer at Marlborough Hospital; and was active with the Marlborough Seniors, where she enjoyed the many trips and events with her friends following her retirement.
Anna lived independently until her 95th birthday. Her family is extremely grateful to the staff of Whitney Place Assisted Living and Beaumont Skilled Nursing Care, Northborough, where she received exceptional care, especially in her final days of hospice.
