May 21, 1991 - Dec 18, 2012 OKLAHOMA CITY After battling breast cancer for more than two years, Katrina Lynn Larson passed away peacefully at her family home Tuesday. Her short life was full of experiences as even the number of countries she visited rivaled her own age of 21. With a smile that shined on the acting stage, she brought joy to those who witnessed her growth into a beautiful young woman. Despite her illness, she looked upon herself as a fighter, not a victim. She lived life like a hand reaching out to grasp every moment, seizing every opportunity and never missing a chance to meet new people and touch their lives. With a passion for the arts, she dazzled on the stage in community theater, and even in her final months, began a New York Film Academy screen writing class, determined to tell her own story. She loved our own NBA team, the Thunder, and fancied the older Nick Collison. Katrina graduated from Heritage Hall in 2009 and held onto many of the friendships formed there. As a nursing student at the University of Tulsa, she was a proud member of the Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Chi Omega. Services will be held in the chapel of Crossings Community Church at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning. A memorial service will also be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 17th at the Tulsa University Chapel. Vondel L Smith and Sons North will host a visitation Friday evening from 4 to 8 p.m. Katrina's family asks that contributions be made in the form of donations to the Katrina Lynn Larson Pink Ribbon Memorial at: katrinalarson.org or the
. Katrina is survived by her grandparents, Homer and Nadine Carter; her parents, Gary and Joan Larson; and her four brothers and their wives, Michael and Jade, Lukas and Jessica, Logan and Rebecca, and Trevor; and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
