1935 - 2014

Francine J. Fran Larson, 78, of Kenosha, died on Friday, March 22, 2014, at her residence.

Born on July 16, 1935, in Kenosha, she was the daughter of the late Frank M. and Rosine (Salerno) Filippelli. She attended local schools and was a graduate of Mary D. Bradford High School.

On Nov. 10, 1957, she was united in marriage to James Larson. Their union was blessed with two sons.

She attended St. Pauls Lutheran Church where she was a Sunday school teacher. Francine was an avid reader and belonged to various book clubs. She had an interest in politics and was a member of the Montana Democratic Party. Francine was an old movie buff who enjoyed traveling, western art, and trivia. Her many passions included making Christmas ornaments, love of family and cooking; especially her delicious Swiss steak.
