Marva was blessed with a large and loving family. She married her sweetheart, Denton Almond, Dec. 20, 1956, in Huron.

They made their home in Huron, where they raised their four sons: Larry, James, Robert and Dallas.

She loved watching baseball, and spoiling her family with home cooked meals, and most of all baking her famous homemade pies for any special occasion.

Marva had a kind heart, always keeping up with her family and checking in on them. She will be deeply missed by everyone who has gotten to cherish in her 83 years of life.

She is survived by her four sons, Larry (Dawn) Almond of Custer, Jim (Kelly Haines) Almond of  Huron, Robert (Michelle) Almond of Rapid City and Dallas (Amy) Almond of Huron; her grandchildren, Jay Almond, Chad Almond, Justin Almond, Reece (Candis) Almond, Whitney (Nick) Reimer, Sadie (Bill) Mees, Macey (Cody) Bich and Ayden Almond; 13 great-grandchildren; and three sisters, Marilyn, Sandra and Patty.
