Della Holt, 79, Parshall, was received by Jesus, Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, in a Garrison nursing home.

Della was born June 1, 1934, the daughter of Leland and Ella Mae (O'Neil) Ruland, on a farm near Fordville. Della's grandmother was a midwife and assisted with her birth. The family moved to Sanish, where Della was raised and educated.

At a young age, Della helped her mom in the family restaurant, cleaning tables. She later worked as a telephone operator where her mother was also employed.

Della married George "Carl" Holt on June 1, 1950, in Parshall; they were blessed with four children. Carl and Della farmed and raised dairy cattle in the Parshall area. Carl died in 1992. Della worked at the restaurant in Parshall for many years. She worked at the nursing home in Parshall for 14 years and later became a resident of the facility; she resided there for 11 years until it closed in 2011 and she moved to the nursing home in Garrison.

Della enjoyed knitting and had fond memories of baking bread, churning butter, gardening and canning her produce. She was proud of her Irish heritage. She loved being a mother and cherished spending time with her family and friends. Della was a member of St. Bridget Catholic Church and its Altar Society, Parshall.

Blessed be her memory among us.
