MaryAlice Jane Girodat

MaryAlice Jane Girodat, 85, of Langdon, ND, passed away Friday, July 22, 2022, at Langdon Prairie Health in Langdon.

MaryAlice Jane Hoffarth was born June 16, 1937, in Maida, ND, to Dominic and Anna (Schuler) Hoffarth. She grew up and went to school in the Maida area. On June 19, 1956, she was united in marriage to Mathias Girodat in Mt. Carmel, ND. They made their home on a farm near Wales where they raised their 11 children, farmed, and had livestock. MaryAlice was very active on the farm, helping with a lot of the outside work as well as providing meals. She and Mathias moved to Langdon in 1986. After moving to Langdon, she did housekeeping at the social services office for many years and at the hospital for about 20 years until she retired. She was currently living at Maple Manor Care Center.

MaryAlice was a caring and thoughtful person. She always was concerned about others, especially her family. She always had a large vegetable garden and did a lot of canning.
