Loretta “Loree” Kay Norgaard (née Stroble), loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in her Somerset, California home on June 9, surrounded by her beloved family— husband Neil Norgaard; children Amber, Brandon, Erik and Zachary; son-in-law German; and grandchildren Mateo and Leila.
Loree was born June 3, 1955 to mother Agnes Stroble (née Hanratty) and father Leopold Stroble in McCloud, California. She spent a magical childhood in Dunsmuir, California with her three siblings, Karen, David and Patri­cia. She often spoke of this cherished time in her life. Loree was a dreamer and a true romantic.
One of Loree’s fondest memories as a young wom­an was her month-long trip to Ireland.
Shortly after meeting the love of her life, Neil and Loree married on Feb. 7, 1976 in Miles City, Mon­tana. Later that same year, the couple moved on to Neil’s hometown of Tyler, where they owned and op­erated a restaurant togeth­er and had their first child. They eventually settled their family in Somerset, California.
The family thanks her many friends and extended family members for their thoughts and prayers. Due to current restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date, as yet to be determined.
