AG Reyes Statement on the Passing of Norma Matheson

July 29, 2019

Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes issued the following statement on the passing of Norma Matheson, former first lady of the State of Utah:

“My wife Saysha and I are saddened to hear of the passing of Norma Matheson. Norma was an incredible force of leadership, strength, wisdom, and warmth. Governor Scott Matheson was formerly a partner at the law firm of Parsons Behle & Latimer, where I spent the majority of my legal career. Even when I was a young lawyer, on those fortunate occasions I had to interact with her, Norma took time to encourage me and took a personal interest in my life. She remained as gracious and thoughtful over the ensuing years. Our prayers and love go out to the entire Matheson family as they mourn the loss of such a remarkable Utahn.”
