Edythe Marian (Huss) DeLange, 97, was born to Elizabeth (Swenson) and George Huss on Oct. 24, 1923 in Wahpeton. Edythe was the eldest of three children. She went to be home with her Lord and Savior on Nov. 30, 2020.

Edythe was baptized in Nov. 1923 and confirmed in Sept. 1937 at Lutheran Church in Mooreton, N.D. She attended grade school in Mooreton, graduating from Wahpeton High School and ND State College of Science in Wahpeton.

After graduation, Edythe moved to Carson and worked for the Farmer’s Home Administration. She met her beloved husband, Eugene “Gene” DeLange in Carson. They were united in marriage on May 5, 1948 in Wahpeton. To this union they had one child, Jerry. They made their home in Carson until March 1955 when they moved to Fairview, Mont. In 1966, the family moved to Glendive, Mont., until they moved to Bismarck in 1988 to be closer to family. Her husband, Gene, passed away in April 1990. Edythe worked many years as a secretary, her last position at First National Bank in Glendive. Edythe had always been active in her church. She was a member of many churches, the last being United Church of Christ in Bismarck. She was active in Christian Women, teaching Sunday School and was an active member of Salem Circle. She belonged to Homemaker’s Club and was a member of Study Club in Bismarck.

She is also survived by Barbara Thorsen and her children, Leigh (Brandon) Due and their children, Halvor and Livia; Chris (Erin) Jirges, and their daughter, Frances; whom she considered her second family.

Edythe was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Eugene; brother, Gordon and his wife, Jeanne Huss; brother-in-law, Clinton Likness; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
