Larson, Perry Oliver (12 April 1907 - 18 April 1967)

Perry Oliver Larson, 60, of rural Curtiss and formerly of the Town of Weston, died Tuesday at his home. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock from the Georgas Funeral Home. The Rev. E. G. Burtness of Calvary Lutheran Church will officiate, and burial will be made in the Columbia Cemetery.

Mr. Larson was born April 12, 1907, in Osseo. He attended schools there and in Clark County. On October 23, 1935, he was married to the former Lorena Wagner in Neillsville.

They farmed in the Town of Weston and Mr. Larson was also employed by the late Ross Paulson. The family moved to Curtiss in 1948 where he was employed by Foremost Company. For the last 10 years he worked for a valve company in Owen.*

He is survived by his wife; nine children, Kenneth of Marshfield, Chester of Canyon, Minn., Mrs. Robert (Leola) Anderson of Abbotsford, Lawrence of Alexandria, VA., Arlin of Ft. Benning, Ga., Arla of Marshfield, and Steven, Kerry and Debra, all at home. Other survivors include two brothers, Ben and Ernest Larson of Genoa City; and four grandchildren.

(*The family lived in the Town of Pine Valley back in the latter 1940’s as the older children attended Silver Crest School on W King Road and Sydney Avenue, where I attended school. DMK)
