Darlyes “Honey” McQuay, 83, Hillsboro, ND died on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018 at the Sanford Care Center in Hillsboro.

Darlyes Jean Evenson was born Oct. 24, 1935 at Rutland, ND to Harold “Duke” and Minnie (Rodlund) Evenson. She graduated from Cogswell (ND) High School and attended ND State School of Science in Wahpeton, ND. Darlyes married Dale “Mac” McQuay on April 29, 1955.
