Dale Norseen - November 30, 2012


Dale G. Norseen, 86, of Minden, passed away Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, at Bryan LGH Hospital in Lincoln of complications following surgery.
Dale was born April 3, 1926, to G. Reuben and Elin Blomstrand Norseen in Loup City.
He graduated from Loup City High School and served with the United States Army.
He married Shirley Jorgensen on Oct. 12, 1952.
He worked for the telephone company for many years, then later farmed near Minden. He is fondly remembered as the yodeling school bus driver and the Minden Public Schools’ transportation supervisor. After retirement he owned and operated a windshield repair business, which gave him opportunities to tell his stories and enjoy countless cups of coffee with his clients.
He was a member of the First Christian Church of Minden, serving in many capacities, including as an Elder and member of the choir. He loved spending time with his family and never forgot how to play with his grandchildren. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his gentle spirit, his yodeling, and his love of music and dancing.
He is survived by his wife; daughters, Marcelyn Holmes, and husband, Douglas, of Kearney; Tamara Petersen, and husband, Bruce, of Minden; and son, Brent, of Sioux Falls, S.D.; grandchildren, William, Andrew, Elizabeth and Samuel Holmes; Lukas, Elin and Benjamin Petersen; Brenden, Hanna and Brock Norseen, Kaytlen Norseen Driesen, and husband, Lukas; and nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents and six siblings including his twin brother, Dean.
Memorial services were Dec. 4 at the First Christian Church in Minden with the Rev. Michael Schmidt officiating.
Wes Hird provided the music for the reception.
Layton-Craig Funeral Home in Minden was in charge of arrangements.
