Obituary for Darlene Mortland

Darlene Marie Mortland was born November 13, 1943 to Edwin and Bernice (Kusniekek) Van Overbeke in Tyler, Minnesota. She was baptized, had first communion, and was confirmed at St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Ivanhoe, Minnesota. After graduating from Ivanhoe High School she attended Robinson’s Twin Beauty Schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and then studied Advanced Hairstyling at Stewart’s School of Hairstyling in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She worked for Elise-Ann Oltman’s Beauty Shop and then her own shop for 52 years. On July 8, 1963 Darlene was united in marriage to Larry Mortland at St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church. Their union was blessed with two sons and 53 years of life together. They built and lived in their new house in Tyler until 1972, then moved to their farm northeast of Arco. Darlene died on Monday, August 15, 2016 at Avera Tyler Hospital at the age of 72.

Darlene was a member of St. Dionysius Catholic Church in Tyler. She loved driving her golf cart down the lake path to their place on the north shore of Lake Stay. She really liked the yearly Holiday Boutique at the high school in Tyler, selling all her crafts and baked goods. In the 1990s her time-out dolls or pouting dolls were a big hit. She enjoyed flowers and playing cards and lunches with her many friends.

Darlene is lovingly remembered by her husband, Larry; her sons, Kevin Mortland of Arco, Minnesota and Randy (Margo) Mortland of Elkton, South Dakota; her sister, Cheryl (Deane) Gacke of Omaha, Nebraska; her brothers, Dean Van Overbeke of Marysville, Washington, and Gary (Debbie) Van Overbeke of Ivanhoe, Minnesota; and many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin and Bernice Van Overbeke; her mother- and father-in-law, Neal and Louise Mortland; sister-in-law Joyce Wonsewicz; and a nephew, Travis Yotter.

Blessed be her memory.
