Posted: February 26th, 2021


STANLEY LLOYD NOREN of Lethbridge, AB, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at the age of 97 years.

He is the loving father of Bob Noren of Lethbridge, and Shari (Hank) Van Rijn of Coaldale. Beside his two children, he is survived by granddaughters Kelly (Sean) Hantke and Haley Van Rijn, along with seven great-grandchildren.

Stan was predeceased by: his wife of 70 years, Doreen in September of 2018 and grandson Joshua Costanza in June 2018 as well as his parents and siblings Ed, Carl, Clarence, George, Hilmer, Esther, Evelyn and Nina.

Stan was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Nels and Julia Noren, the second youngest of nine children. He met future wife Doreen at a local dance. Mom and Dad were often the first ones on the floor at any wedding or event and dancing was something they enjoyed for the rest of their lives. They married in 1948, starting a family a few years later. Stan began his career at Robin Hood Floor Mill in Moose Jaw. Dad moved the family to Saskatoon in 1965 when the mill in Moose jaw closed down. In 1972, Stan took a job at International Multi foods in Buffalo, New York, residing there until 1977 at which time they moved back to Canada and Stan took a position at Ellison Milling in Lethbridge as Plant Superintendent. He enjoyed the last ten years of his career there and the many golfing trips he took with his wife Doreen and friends.

Dad, we will miss your steady presence, bad jokes and ever-present smile but know that you are happy to be back beside Mom.

At Stan’s request there will be no funeral.
