Janice Mariel Larson Obituary
Janice Mariel Larson

Janice Mariel Larson, 88, died on October 23, 2019 at her home. She was born to the late Helga and Harry Larson in Kane, PA. She was preceded in death by her sister Harriet Rose, and is survived by her sisters, Romayne Dill and Lorraine Hendrickson, her son, Kim, and daughter, Bonnie, as well as many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews. She especially enjoyed the newest family generation of munchkins.

She graduated from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA and Florida State University. She was a teacher and a librarian.

She was an avid gardener and belonged to the Master Gardener group in Buncombe County where she made many, many dear friends. She was a voracious reader and rarely espied a book that she would not at least skim to assess its readability. However, her greatest passion was traveling. She made many trips across the Pond with her sister and main traveling companion, Romayne, and many other friends, including the famous, "Girls on Tour," an exuberant bunch of friends.

The family would like to thank her caregivers; including, Dr. Michael Messino, Dr. Lisa Reed, Dr. Colin Bird, and her nurses at Hospice Karen Miller, Charlotte Skemp, and Samantha Riddle who were amazing gifts to my mother's life.

She requested no service, and memorials can be made to Four Seasons Hospice, 571 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC 28731.
