Lois L. Larsen 91, of Nampa passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family on December 20, 2015. Services will be held on Wednesday January 6, 2016 at 1:00 pm at the Potter Funeral Chapel in Emmett. Burial will follow at the Emmett Cemetery. Lois was born Oct. 10, 1924 in Decatur, Neb. to Howard and Vera Harvey. She was the oldest of 4 children.
Her family moved to Greybull and then Casper, Wyo. where Lois graduated from Natrona County High School in 1943. Shortly after they moved to San Diego, Ca. and from there Lois moved to Los Angeles, where she met her first husband, Ezra D. Morgan, in art school. They married on Sept. 1, 1946, and later had three children, Penny, Harvey, and Tim. The family relocated to the Mississippi gulf coast in 1964 where Ezra had accepted an engineering job in the aerospace industry. There Lois worked as a receptionist at a local hospital and later became an insurance agent, a profession she excelled at. She received numerous awards and honors, including Insurance Woman of the year, and was voted as president of the Insurance Women's Association. After Ezra's passing in 1977, Lois moved to Boise to be near her mother and sister.
Lois was introduced to Wayne B. Larsen by his daughter, a co­worker of Lois, and they married on Oct. 17, 1981. They lived at Wayne's residence in Emmett for the next 30 years. After Wayne's passing, Lois moved to Nampa to be near her sons and daughter-in-law. Lois loved to entertain and host family events. She lived life to the fullest and was active in many clubs and organizations from a Mardi Gras krewe in Mississippi to the Rebeccas and the Valley of Plenty Quilters in Emmett. She was an active member of her church as well.
Lois was preceded in death by her parents and her siblings Francis Phipps, Duane Harvey and Ronald Harvey. She is survived by her children, Penny Chambers, Harvey Morgan, and Tim Morgan, and three stepchildren, Eunice Bramwell, Dean Larsen, Deanna Larsen, and many grand and great grandchildren. The family would like to give thanks to Wendy, Kimra, Loma, Chuck, and the rest of the amazing staff at St. Alphonsus Hospice Care, and a special thanks to Pam Petersen for the love and care that you showed for our mom. She will be missed.
