April 06, 1937 - April 10, 2017


Barb passed away on April 10, 2017 at the Hillsboro Medical Center, surrounded by her family, and under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Barbara Jean Puderbaugh was born on April 6, 1937 in Bremerton, WA. She was united in marriage to Ronald Deck on October 22, 1965. Together they made their home north of Hillsboro where they owned and operated Sky Tractor Company for many years. Barb was active in the Hillsboro American Legion and VFW Auxiliary where she served as president, loved her time with the Foxy Red Hatters and local Homemaker’s group, and was active with the WNAAA where she also served as president. Barb’s favorite times were spent with her family and outside working in her yard.

Barb is survived by her six children – Peggy (Tony) Klemetson, Cheryl (Steve) Fugleberg, Mike (Denise) Deck, and Wendy (Jay) Alfson all of Hillsboro; Audra Mayo of West Fargo, ND and Brian Egan of Fargo, ND. Also surviving are her 14 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ron.

Visitation will be held from 10-12 on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Wildeman-Boulger Funeral Home in Hillsboro. There will be a graveside service following at St. Olaf Church Cemetery near Hillsboro where she will be laid to rest next to her husband.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to the wonderful caregivers at the Sanford Medical Center in Hillsboro and Fargo. The loving and compassionate care shown to Barb and her family will always be remembered.

    Peggy: I am your cousin Christy DeLong Wagner. My mom and dad were Les and June Puderbaugh DeLong that lived in Bremerton. I always admired your mom and looked up to her as an example of a loving, caring mom to her children. We lived so far apart, but when we did have a chance to visit Barb always spoke fondly of her family and life in North Dakota. My sincerest condolences to all of Barb’s family and friends. Hoping lots of loving memories will comfort you all at this sad time. Love to you all from Idaho!

    I am sorry to hear about Barb. As I reflect back on the many afternoons she was at our house when I was kid, I smile thinking of the fun times she had with my mom and all the other ladies that congregated at the Orange house!! It was quite an amazing group.

    Barb was a great lady with a real pride for her family and a true friend to many. I always enjoyed visiting with her whenever I would run into her. She will be missed, but she has been reunited with Ron and all those friends that went before her.

    Thoughts and prayers to all of you!
