Hendrie Bilben, need obit or other information

The relatives in Norway are trying to find out what happened to the Bilben family members once they immigrated to Minnesota. Hendrie Bilben was born in Minnesota
but died in Idaho.

Hendrie Bilben
Born February 16, 1899 (Minnesota)
Died May 14, 1980 (81 years old)
Last Known
Residence Middleton, Canyon County, Idaho
Burial:
Hillcrest Memorial Gardens
Caldwell
Canyon County
Idaho, USA
Plot: Mausoleum

Hendrie was born in Hawley, Clay county, Minnesota to Hans and Annie Bilben. He lived also in Duluth, Minnesota, and Ramsey county, Minnesota, probably in the town of White Bear Lake. His wife was named May or Mae Irish.

Trying to find out anything about him, or if he had children, any descendants?

Thanks,
Taryn

As Bilben is a quite unique name, all Bilbens in US should be related. One (Syvert) came 1871 and 3 siblings + mother in 1878.
