ALBION – The family of a mother and son killed in a Feb. 2 accident on Route 98 in Elba will celebrate their lives at two upcoming events.

Theresa Norton, 53, and her son, Thomas, 22, died in a car accident on a snow-covered section Route 98 between Edgerton Road and Batavia Elba Townline Road.

July 29 would have been Theresa’s 54th birthday. The family will be releasing balloons at 6 p.m. on July 29 at her house, 4779 Cushing Rd. in Barre. The balloons will be released in honor of the mother and son, said Kim Albanese, Theresa’s daughter.

Earlier that day, Kim will also be laying flowers at the crash site in honor of her mother and brother.

The family will have a celebration of life for Theresa and Thomas Norton at 1 p.m. on Aug. 3. That celebration will be at 317 West Academy St., Albion, at a relative’s home.

Albanese said family and friends are welcome to attend and are encouraged to bring a dish to pass.
