Kayleen was born on September 16, 2003 in St. Cloud to Kelly and Sarah (Bettendorf) Larson. She was in the third grade Spanish Immersion Program at Clearview Elementary. Kayleen loved music, soccer, swimming, camping and the outdoors. She was her brother and sister's #1 hockey fan. She was a budding artist who loved to do crafts and paint. She especially enjoyed time with her friends.
Kayleen was a beautiful girl who was more full of life than any obituary could capture and will be remembered that way. She loved her family and took comfort in knowing that she would watch over us from above.
She is survived by her parents, Kelly and Sarah of Clearwater; siblings, Alex Larson, Meghan Larson, Jon Frikken and his wife Jessie Schafer-Frikken; grandparents, Judy Bettendorf of St. Cloud, James Bettendorf of Brooklyn Park, Patricia Larson of Sartell; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Kayleen was preceded in death by her grandfather, Arden Larson.
