Norman Dorsey Hill, 91, of Westminster, MD, passed away on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at Ridge Overlook in Westminster, MD. He was the beloved husband of Mary Velma Hill (nee LeRoy).  Norman was born December 10, 1931, in Dayton, MD, the son of the late William H.

Norman joined the local 4-H club at the age of ten and began showing cattle in 1942. In 1952, he went on to place 2nd in the National 4-H dairy contest in Waterloo, Iowa. He then went to work with his brothers on the family farm, under the name Wauwatosa Farm. They showed cattle all over the East Coast for over 20 years until 1969, at which time Norman went to work with A. Doty Remsburg of Remsburg Sale Service. He worked there for 20 years in the areas of cattle selection, pedigree work and sales announcement. The highlight of his time with Mr. Remsburg was helping with the National Holstein Sale, which was held in Baltimore, MD. After his many years spent with Remsburg Sale Service, Norman founded NH Cattle Co., where he managed numerous dairy cattle sales, both private and public, for many of the East Coast’s most respected and well-known dairy cattle breeders. Norman’s straight-up honesty and integrity were second to none. He was inducted into the MD Dairy Shrine in 2009.

Surviving in addition to his wife are his daughter Marsha Dorsey and husband Mike and his stepson Edmond Lott. He will be remembered by his grandchildren Tim Dorsey and wife Stephanie, Melissa Morris and husband Mike, Anna Meushaw and husband Cody, James Lott and seven great-grandchildren. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Norman was preceded in death by his six siblings. There will be a public memorial service for Norman on May 5th at Jennings Chapel United Methodist Church in Woodbine, Maryland.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Jennings Chapel United Methodist Church; 2601 Jennings Chapel Road, Woodbine, MD 21797 or Calvary Lutheran Church; 16151 Old Frederick Road, Mt. Airy, MD 21771.  Online condolences at
