Eileen M. Beck

January 5, 1933 — December 13, 2023

Munich, ND

Eileen Beck, 90, of Munich, ND, passed away Wednesday, December 13, 2023, at Langdon Prairie Health in Langdon, ND.

Eileen Marie Korb was born January 5, 1933, at the family farm near Calio, ND, to Peter and Anna (Janowski) Korb. She attended school in Calio and Egeland, graduating from Egeland High School in 1951. On July 25, 1951, she married Rallan Beck at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Calio. They made their home in Trier Township before building a house in Sievert Township in 1958. They raised their five children there.  Lori McLean Wirth joined the family in 1973.  In 1982, Eileen and Rallan moved to Munich, where she resided until moving into Maple Manor in late 2019.

Eileen enjoyed life and took everything in stride.  She was a devoted wife and mother and helped on the farm in any way she could.  Her house was always neat and tidy, her flower gardens were beautiful and her vegetable garden was bountiful.  Many hours were spent in the kitchen providing two big meals daily along with abundant fresh baked goods.  Eileen loved to go fishing and to the casinos.  Bingo, card games, puzzles, sewing, and bowling were also favorite pastimes for her.  She played basketball in high school and truly enjoyed attending and watching sporting events of all kinds and at all levels.  Following her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to activities was a big part of her life.  Eileen also enjoyed traveling with her husband, visiting all 50 states and 5 continents. St. Boniface Catholic Church in Calio was her parish until its closing.  At that time she became a parishioner of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Munich.  She belonged to the Altar Society in both parishes and was also a member of the PTA in Munich.    

Surviving Eileen are her children: Avonne (Steve) Fagerland of Rapid City, SD, Cindy (Richard) Zimmer of Munich, Nathan (Lori) Beck of Munich, Gary (Lynette) Beck of Munich, Lisa (Van) Howatt of Langdon, and Lori (Gary) Wirth of Munich; 30 grandchildren; 67 great-grandchildren; her sister, Sister Maris Stella; sister-in-law Pat Beck; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Rallan; and siblings: Ethel Hettwer, Jeanette Korb and Harvey Korb.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 21, 2023, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Munich, ND. The Rosary will be at 10:00 a.m. with visitation following until the time of the service. Burial will be at St. Boniface Cemetery near Calio, ND.
