Norene was born on Aug. 18, 1938, on a farm near Elba, the daughter of William and Beulah (Johansen) Keller. Norene attended school in Elba where she excelled in sports and cheerleading and graduated with honors in May 1956.

She married David Dzingle in June 1956. They had been married for 64 beautiful years. Norene and David have four extraordinary children, whom they loved and cherished undeniably.

Dave’s employment with Boeing company led them to Seattle, WA. Her expertise in data processing led her to work at various insurance companies.
