Obituary for Darlene Borth

Darlene Borth, 86, Rugby died on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at Heart of America Medical Center in Rugby. Darlene was born on March 18, 1932 in Medina, North Dakota to John and Lydia Wiest Hust. She was raised in the Medina area and graduated from Medina High School in 1950 . As a young girl she worked in the Borth General Store until she married Harold Elmer Borth on March 30, 1952. They lived in Medina where they were in partnership with John Speidel for 27 years at the Medina and Carrington department stores. In 1982 they moved to Rugby where they continued to operate hardware and department stores in Rugby, Devils Lake, Carrington, and Medina.
She was an active member of Bethany Lutheran Church in Rugby.
Darlene's life can be described as “unconditional giving.” She was an incredible mother and grandmother. Her love truly was her family. She was always ready for the next adventure. Whether to Medora or Lake Metigoshe, she took her grandkids with her everywhere. Her and her mother never missed one of the grandkids' events, including almost 10 years of high school basketball games. Her other infamous love was Elvis. You could always find Darlene listening to Elvis songs and wearing her King of Rock bling. Everyone's life who was touched by her knows the feeling she gave - blessings and calm. Such a gracious woman. May we all live with the faith that she lived, knowing that we will hug again.  
She is survived by her two daughters, RoJean and her husband Terry Wentz and DyVonne and her husband George Zinck all of Rugby. Four grandchildren will miss her very much - Justin and his wife Sheila Wentz, Jeremy Wentz, Kayla and her husband Ben Brase, and Lee and his wife Christy Zinck. In addition she leaves 7 great grandchildren - Joshua and Chloe Wentz, Lydia and Liam Brase, and Tucker, Brynlee, and Wyatt Zinck. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold on June 28, 1991 and her parents.
