January 5, 1927 - April 22, 2018

ElDean Van Buren Norseth was born in Moroni, Sanpete, Utah, January 5, 1927, to Elden Taylor and Effie Fay Hansen Van Buren.

ElDean graduated from Manti High School and attended L.D.S. Business College. She married the love of her life, Lorin Keith Norseth, February 9, 1951. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Temple.

Her greatest joys were her beloved husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives, and friends. ElDean loved taking trips, camping, dancing, playing her organ, visiting with her loving family members, relatives, and friends.

She enjoyed crocheting, knitting, crafts, genealogical work, indexing, and reading. ElDean loves her Father in Heaven, her Savior and the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served many positions in the LDS Church.

Her careers involved teaching in Weber School District, Secretarial work, Realtor, and especially raising her family and homemaking. She was dedicated to church and volunteer work.

ElDean belonged to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, having five sets of grandparents crossing the plains, sacrificing much for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for which she was grateful.

She is survived by the following loved ones: her children and their spouses, Michael Keith (Christine) Norseth, Steven Lorin (Barbara) Norseth, Susan (Walter) Ronayne, and Nancy Norseth; grandchildren, Brandon Garr, Jason (Kammie) Garr, Dirk Garr, Nicole (Adam) Jacobs, Peter (Taylor) Norseth, Michelle (Christian) Petersen, Clint (Sheri) Norseth, Ben Norseth, Cami (Cody) Taylor, Stacy (Michael) Roubinet, Corey (Kellen) Vandenberg, Angie Bechel, Trudy (Jeffrey) Eldridge, Kassi (Nathan) Leavit, Ashley (Gavin) McCleary, and Chelsea (Michael) Budge. ElDean is also the proud great-grandmother of 41 precious great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Keith; parents, and brother, Stuart Don Van Buren; brother, Elden Rue VanBuren; and a grandson Darin Keith Norseth.

Your mother was one of my favorites in our ward! She was so fun to talk with and so current on fashion and technology. I'll never forget seeing her with a smart phone at Church and so impressed! She was always kind and sweet and interested in our lives. We missed her when she moved to Treeo. What a remarkable lady! From Sheridan Sheffield

Your dear mother and grandmother ElDean was in my DUP camp. We enjoyed many years of friendship. ElDean was a gracious kind and spunky lady. I loved it when she said that she was doing line dancing. I was happy to give her my cowboy boots pin. Her memory will always bring a smile to my face. Love, Kathy Archibald
