Norene Ione Schmidgall was born in Hancock, MN, on February 5, 1933, to John and Lizzie (Metzger) Schmidgall. She was the 15th of 17 children. She grew up in the town of Hancock and started her career working for Hancock Bank and eventually worked for the law firm Gibberson & Collins (now known as Fluegel, Anderson, McLaughlin & Brutlag Chartered) in Morris. She left the law firm in December of 1978 to start her own accounting and tax practice with her sister Barb Brown, and friend Jeanette Olson. In 1999, she sold the practice to CDS, and she continued to work for CDS until her retirement. Norene married Carl Moser on June 3, 1956.

Norene enjoyed the time spent at family gatherings, reunions, and vacations. She also enjoyed reading books, playing cards, board games, and puzzles. She was baptized as a member of the Apostolic Christian Church. Her faith was important to her and comforted her on her journey to be with Jesus.

Norene went to be with Jesus early February 21, 2022, in her home at West Wind Village in Morris, Minnesota. She lived to the age of 89.

She is survived by her husband Carl; her four sons: Todd (Kimberly) of Morris, Ben of St. Paul, MN, Carter of Morris, and Kent (Amy) of Fargo, ND; her five grandchildren: Heather Moser of Morris, Tyler (Anna) Moser of Morris, Abby, Sam, and Ellie Moser of Fargo; her two great-grandchildren, Mona and Renly Quiram of Morris; her siblings: Floyd Schmidgall of Morris, Barb (Vern) Brown of Morris, Marilyn (Ed) Lanz of Broad Brook, CT, and Marion Schmidgall of Morris; and her sister-in-law, Verona Schmidgall of Burnsville, MN.

Norene was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Brian Moser, who passed October 30, 2018; and several brothers and sisters.
