Delphine was born on May 15, 1936 at Northwood ND, the daughter of Rudolph and Irene (Hanson) Olson.  Delphine attended school in Northwood and graduated from Northwood High School in 1954. 

Delphine was united in marriage to Lawrence “Larry” Larson on August 27th, 1955 at the Northwood Lutheran Church.  They lived in Kloten, Lakota, Grace City ND and Hendrum and East Grand Forks MN until 1966 when they moved to Devils Lake and called it home even after retirement.  Larry passed away on July 30, 2018. 

First and foremost Delphine was a devoted wife and loving mother and grandmother.  Her grandchildren meant the world to her and she treasured every day spent with them.  She and Larry took them to many events and outings through the years; they loved being grandparents.

Delphine enjoyed meeting friends and family at the ELKS and participating in the activities.  Delphine was a meticulous housekeeper, but that didn’t stop her from cooking and baking family favorites and hosting holidays and special events.  She enjoyed listening to Country Western music on her “favorite radio station” at Radio Works. 

Delphine was so loved and will be greatly missed by her family including her daughters Laurie Henschel, Bismarck ND, Robin (Roger) Mertens, Devils Lake and Rhonda (Ross) Juntunen also of Bismarck; grandchildren Sarah (Nick) Murchie, Colorado, Danny (Robyn) Mertens, Nicole (Josh) Kuntz and Jordan (Allison) Mertens all of Devils Lake; great grandchildren Easton Murchie, Ashtyn, Tralyn and Wrigley Mertens, Hayden and Halle Kuntz, Hollynn and Grady Mertens; brother Roger (Adeline) Olson, Two Harbers MN; sister-in-law Elsie Pederson, Fargo ND along with many nieces and nephews. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Larry, brother Rodney Olson and sister Irma Larson.
