Noreen C. Ege, 74, formerly of Little Marais, passed peacefully from her earthly restraints Monday, December 10, 2012, in Diamond Willow Lester Park Assisted Living in Duluth.
She was born July 5, 1938, to John and Clara (Venberg) Fenstad in Duluth. On May 2, 1959, she married Ronald Ege at the United Protestant Church in Silver Bay. Noreen was a life-long resident of the North Shore at Little Marais. She was employed in the administrative offices of Reserve Mining Company in Silver Bay for several years, and later as a bookkeeper for North Shore Oil. She was also the Little Marais postmaster for many years. Noreen was a member of the United Protestant Church in Silver Bay, the Little Marais Community Club, and the Order of the Eastern Star.
She enjoyed camping, snowmobiling, fishing, word-find puzzles, motorhome travel to other states, and family time together. In her spare time she decorated cakes for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and special events. Family and friends knew her for her piano playing. She couldn’t read music, but played by ear flawlessly. Heaven is a little more musical now.
Special thank you to the wonderful and caring staff at Keystone Bluffs and Diamond Willow Assisted Living. Your kindness and friendships were treasured by Noreen and her family.
Noreen was preceded in death by her parents, and many beloved aunts and uncles.
Noreen is survived by her husband, Ronald; a daughter, Diane Ege of Duluth; a son, David (Joan) Ege of St. Michael; a granddaughter, Kaitlen Ege; and nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 4 at 1:30 p.m. at United Protestant Church in Silver Bay.
