Darlene Holte

February 21, 1961 - July 15, 2011


Darlene Marie (Krumm) Holte, 50, Fargo, died unexpectedly at her home on July 15, 2011. 

Darlene was born February 21, 1961 to Neil and Tess Krumm.  Darlene was a 1979 graduate of West Fargo High School and was an employee of U.S. Bank. 

Darlene had a determined spirit and was dedicated to her family and friends.  She had a great kindness about her, always thinking of others first and lending a shoulder to lean on by all who needed her.  Her sense of humor was unmatched and her laugh, contagious.  Above all, she was a wonderful Mother and Grandmother.  She will be missed more than we can ever say. 

Darlene is survived by her parents, Neil and Tess Krumm; her daughters, Danielle Holte and Tiffany Holte; and her granddaughter, Aaliyah Holte.  She is also survived by her sister, Anita Krumm, of Fort Worth, TX; brothers, Jeff (Julie Lund) Krumm of Savage, MN and Joe (Tammy) Krumm of Fredericksburg, VA.  She was the ‘fun aunt’ to Erica Krumm (Jim Kolles), Minneapolis, MN; Noah and Luke Aton of Savage, MN; and Lucas and Lexy Krumm of Fredericksburg, VA.

Memorials preferred to the family.

    I was so saddened to hear about Darlene’s passing. Every time I saw her coming into work she had a smile on her face. Before I had my surgery in February of this year she gave me encouraging words and told me everything would be okay, and she was right. I met Darlene when we worked at Eventide Nursing Home and knew that she was a sweet loving person with a big heart. She always talked about her family and had a sparkle in her eye every time she did.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this time of sorrow.

    With Deepest Sympathy,

    To the Family of Darlene Holte:

    Darlene was a truly caring person. If she saw a need in others she always did what she could to help them. She was so proud of her daughters and her granddaughter. Darlene’s laugh was infectious! Once she got you started it was hard to quit. You have a wonderful guardian angel watching over you all and as long as she’s in your memories and your hearts she will live on.

    Rest in peace Darlene.

    I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Darlene.

    I worked with Darlene for several years at Eventide Nursing Home in Moorhead. We were good friends for a few years but lost touch after I moved to Minneapolis.

    Darlene was one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever encountered. I know from working with her how much she loved her children.

    What I remember most about Darlene was her laugh, it was infectious and often we would laugh uncontrollably. I still remember the last evening I spent with Darlene over at a mutual friends grilling, all Darlene and I had to do was look at each other and the laughter started.

    Darlene was there for me when I lost my own mother at 51 and no matter the circumstances it is never easy. However, it does get better time and your faith will get you through.

  15. Cheri Alexander says:

    To Darlene’s family: I’m so very sorry for your loss. I’m sure her vitality and loving nature will be missed. I will miss her humor and her thoughtfulness, and her talent for knowing just how much to chat about the serious stuff, to get it out of our system so we could laugh again! She was a good friend, and I will remember her always.

    Fargo Darlene – While I have just gotten to know you over the past 3 years, and even more so over the last 3 weeks, I have been blessed to just to have gotten to know you…period. One only has to initially meet you to know that you were a kind, loving, and caring individual.

    Our prayers go out to those who love you and are privileged to have called you family and friend. May each and every one within your sphere of influence sense His presence, experience His peace, and are comforted by the fact that you are now with Him who created you in His image.

    We will keep you in our memories and thoughts, which when we do, will always put smiles on our faces.

    Danielle, Tiffany and Precious Aaliyah, Words cannot explain how sorry I am for all of you with the loss of your wonderful mother and grandmother. I have such fond memories of her. Her laugh was infectious, and her sarcasm and one liners like none other. I can close my eyes and envision it all. She was the highlight of all events as I know she is right now in her new home. This world will not be the same without her. She touched many many lives and she will be greatly missed. She was SO proud of you girls and Aaliyah. We were all truly blessed and better people for having her in our lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you go through this most difficult time.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Darlene was a a big part of my lifr and I will never forget her. She always about how special her girlswere to her, and Aaliyah was her little angel. Through Darlene I met a very special and loving family. Words can’t express of how much I will miss her loving sense of humor and how her eyes sparkled when she was happy. She made me realize how special life is. Rest in peace Darlene, you are my friend always. Tell my Mom hi when you see her in heaven.

    Dearest Tiffany & Aaliyah and the rest of Darlene’s family: We (parents of Patrick) are deeply saddened at the passing of your mom/grandmother and especially saddened because we never had the privilege of meeting her in person. After reading everyone’s entries, we learn a little more about this special lady and how she touched so many lives in a positive way. But, this is no surprise to us as you, Tiffany, have those very same traits. Even as young as Aaliyah is, she already makes us smile and feel special whenever we are around her as did her grandmother to so many people. We look forward to meeting more of your family. As the book says, “Heaven Is For Real” and hopefully one day we will all “meet” there.
    Love, Audrey & Dave

    To the family of Darlene–

    When I think back on my memories of Darlene they are of a fun loving “cool and older sister” to my good friend Anita. I would wish secretly that I could have an older sister who was so fun and who made me feel so important. I guess that’s what Darlene did every time I’d see her.

    May God watch over all of you–our prayers are with you.

    Longmont COTo the Krumm family,

    When I received an e-mail from Jeff this morning about Darlene’s passing, I must say, I am in shock. Darlene and I go back many years and I have such fond memories growing up together in Horace. Several years later when I would see Darlene working at the nursing home, which my mother was in, Darlene would remind me of the times we had growing up together and always had me laughing. Darlene and her wonderful sense of humor and compassion will be missed by many.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of sadness.

    I only knew Darlene for a short time working with her at the bank, but in that time we got to be the best of friends. I’m going to miss the funny times, the laughs, the cries, the jokes, the texts….but I do know one thing, she had a big hear and she loved her family dearly. God Bless you and my prayers with each and every one of you.

    Darlene was such a beautiful spirit and person, and was a great friend and co-worker.

    My sorrowful heart, prayers and thoughts go out to her family especially her daughter and grandbaby who she spoke of so often with pride and joy.
    God Bless you in this time of loss…

    To Danielle and Tiff- my deepest sympathies to you.. Darlene was a shining star that made everyone around her feel special and loved. She was a beautiful and loving mom and friend.

The cool breeze on your face, that whisper of the wind, that special moment when you smile for no apparent reason at all. These are things that I feel she would represent to all of the family and friends that she has left behind. the good lord has a new angel to help him look over us all.
