Eva E. Westby

Eva Westby, 95, of Langdon, ND, and formerly of Fairdale, passed away peacefully Sunday, October 10, 2021, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon, ND.
Eva Emma Westby was born December 2, 1925, to Louis and Mary (Mess) Krom. She was the last survivor of 11 children. Eva was raised in the Nekoma, ND, area where she received her education. On November 11, 1952, she was united in marriage to Raymond Westby. Following their marriage, they farmed near Fairdale, ND, where six children were born. Ray passed away on July 15, 2006.
She was a member of Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church of Fairdale and later the United Lutheran Church of Langdon. Eva had many interests including: playing games and cards, crocheting, sewing, embroidery, gardening and baking. She was a gentle, soft-spoken woman who never complained. Eva was a very devoted wife and mother.
Survivors include her children: Mary (Marshall) Engblom of Champlin, MN, Bruce Westby, Dennis (April) Westby all of Langdon, ND, Shirley Gustafson (John Tibert) of Minto, ND, Roger Westby of Milton, ND, and Lori (Roy) Poole of New Market, AL. Preceding her in death were her parents, Louis and Mary Krom; husband Raymond; two sisters: Anna and Mary; and eight brothers: Peter, Joe, Rudolph, Charlie, Tom, Louis Jr., Victor and Donny.
The family of Eva wants to thank all the staff at Maple Manor Care Center for all the great care and love given to their mom.
A private memorial service will be held at the Brooks Funeral Home in Langdon, ND, with burial in the Silvesta Cemetery near Fairdale, ND.

Sincere condolences at this sad time. I didn't know Eva, but I believe her late husband, Raymond, was a cousin of my Mom's (Grace Westby Fischer, Fairdale/Langdon). My sympathies on her passing.

Your Mom was a gem and an anchor for your family. She was a great homemaker (your Dad a great farmer). Please know she blessed our family and I am sure many others. Keith Gilbertson

Dear Eva's family, Our sympathy! Eva has been away from Fairdale for lots of years but not far from our minds. She was so helpful in the congregation and with 4-H and community projects!! Our little community misses each one that moves away from "home"!! Blessed be the memory of Eva Westby. Sincerely Irvin and Gladys.
