Born in Kedleston, Saskatchewan November 18, 1927 Noreen was raised on the family farm and <br>completed her training as a Registered Nurse at Regina General Hospital.

Noreen went immediately to <br>work at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, returning after each child, and holding many positions including Head Nurse and Supervisor of Critical Care Services. <br> <br>Upon retirement in 1986 Noreen set out to bicycle across Canada with the Cross Canada Cycle Tour Society.
