Noren was the county clerk from 1982 until she resigned in June, citing her declining health. She worked briefly as a consultant for her successor, Taylor Burks.

Noren began working in the clerk's office in 1978 when her predecessor, Chris Kelly, hired her. She won re-election eight times and was challenged only once, in 1998.
