Norene Frances Kempf was born on January 20, 1925, the youngest of four children to Nathaniel and Olive (Fehr) Kempf in Eureka, Illinois.  Norene was raised in Eureka where she received her education and attended the Apostolic Christian Church.  After her schooling, Norene helped on the family farm, including milking cows.  She also worked at the local grocery store, Traver’s Grocery.  Through the church, Norene was introduced to David Moser.  They were united in marriage on March 9, 1958, in Eureka.  Following their marriage, they moved to Morris and purchased a farm and started their family.  Norene stayed home with her children while they were young; she raised chickens and sold eggs, washed clothing for other families, and made many, many meals for the farmers.  When the youngest went to school, she began her career working in food service at the University of Minnesota in Morris.  David and Norene moved off of the farm and into Morris in 1986.  David died in 1993; Norene continued to live at their home until her move to Skyview Court and ultimately West Wind Village where she lived until her death.    

In later years, Norene and David spent many days traveling, and fishing.  They made several trips up north and to Mobridge and also went on their annual trips to see the changing leaves.  Norene enjoyed sewing and crocheting, especially afghans that she gave as gifts to many people in the area.   In her later years, Norene loved walking and spending time with her family, especially babysitting her grandchildren.

Norene died peacefully on Thursday, March 17, 2022, at the West Wind Village in Morris, she was 97 years old.
