She was born in Toronto (East York) on November 22, 1929. She graduated from East York Collegiate in 1948. She continued her studies at the University of Toronto, graduating as a Chemical Engineer, class of 5T3. She pursued a career as a Chemical Engineer first in Montreal with Canadian Industries Limited (CIL) and then after marrying Bert in 1954, in Kingston and Maitland with DuPont Canada. In 1958, anticipating the arrival of their first child she became a full-time homemaker and devoted mother, still using her engineering skills at every opportunity. As her girls grew, Norene pursued her many interests. She was a Girl Guide leader, volunteered to help people learn English, was an enthusiastic member of the Canadian Federation of University Women – CFUW Etobicoke belonging to book clubs, and art appreciation groups and was an active member of St Matthias Anglican Church Etobicoke. She was an avid photographer and a prolific knitter. After she suffered a stroke in 2016, she made the move to Goderich Ontario to be closer to Sarah and Larry. As her health declined, she
needed to move to Huronlea, the long-term care home in Brussels.
A private family burial service has been held.
