Age 93, passed away peacefully, with her daughters at her side, on December 25, 2017, in Seal Beach, California. Louise was born in Independence, Missouri, the daughter of Phil and Laura Cogan. The family moved to California in 1928.

In 1947, Louise married the love of her life, John H. Larson. They began their life in Long Beach while she worked at the Board of Education and he attended USC Law School. She quit working shortly before the birth of their second daughter and devoted herself to raising their family.

Louise and John were inseparable until his death on October 12, 2011. They were married for over 64 years and raised two daughters. They enjoyed church activities, traveling and being together as a family. Louise was always involved in her daughters' activities, taking them to dancing classes, swimming lessons, sewing classes and anywhere else they needed to be. She remained active and involved in social activities until her death.

Louise is survived by her two daughters, Loretta Hawley and Karen Larson; her grandsons, Brock Hurst and Cody Hurst; her sisters, Dodie Junghanel and Evelyn VonLossberg; and a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and close friends.
