Obituary for DeLaine (Olson) Mork

Age 90 of Brooklyn Center, passed away peacefully on 11/10/20.

She was born on the family farm near Kempton, ND, on 2/22/30. After graduating from Northwood High School and Mayville State Teachers College, she taught in a one-room schoolhouse in western ND and at elementary schools in Grand Forks, ND, and Anoka, MN.

She and Odean Mork were married at Northwood Evangelical Lutheran Church in North Dakota on 7/6/58 and raised four children. Children were at the center of her heart, whether it was teaching Sunday School at Lutheran Church of the Master or smothering her grandchildren with love and affection. She always had a smile for everyone and enough love to give wherever she thought it was needed.

DeLaine is survived by her beloved husband, Odean; children Cindy Traub, Collette Mork, Randy Mork, and Phil (Rachel) Mork; grandchildren Amy (Jake) Kershaw, Brandon, Arianna, and Sophia Mork, and Sara and Katie Traub.

She was preceded in death by parents Ingeborg and Gunder Olson and siblings Mervin (Esther) Olson, Adeline (Arnold) Larson, and Ione (John) Mark. She will be dearly missed.

Memorials preferred to Lutheran Church of the Master in Brooklyn Center, www.lcmonline.net.

These people are wonderful. They went over and above in every possible way to help us with funeral arrangements, the visitation, service and burial, despite the fact that we had a limited budget. They were patient, kind, and treated us like family. This is a funeral home you can trust. Thank you, Evans-Nordby.
