She also leaves numerous nieces and nephews and many others who will forever refer to her as “Nana.” She is predeceased by her beloved husband of 57 years, Floyd S. Larson, her son, Clifford Larson, and her sister, Arline White.
Eunice, a daughter of Clarence and Frances (Bergwall) Frick, was born April 2, 1931, in Hartford, Connecticut. She was a graduate of Weaver High School, where she played cornet in her high school marching band. On April 8, 1950, Eunice became Mrs. Floyd Larson. Most of their 57 years of married life were spent in Holden, serving the Lord together, raising four children, and running their own business, Larson & Sons Floor Company. Eunice also retained her real estate broker’s license for many years. Eunice and Floyd loved to make music together through their singing and musical instruments, entertain guests in their home, go out for lunch and dinner with friends, and travel domestically and abroad, several of those trips being groups hosted by Eunice. Rarely knowing the details, she was always “ready to go” on whatever excursion lay ahead. Her hobbies included quilting, stained glass creations, and knitting.
Both family and church were important to Eunice. She loved and served the Lord all of her life. She sang in the choir, led women’s ministries, and most recently, she was leading a support group for caregivers at the Holden Chapel where she was an active member. Her deepest desire would be for all who knew her to come to know Christ as she did, as her personal Savior. The family takes great comfort in knowing she is now present with the Lord.
