Kathryn Ann (Mueller) Larson, age 59, of Howard Lake, died Sunday, July 19, 2009.
She was born Sept. 20, 1949, in Madison, MN to Alice and Charles Mueller. Kathryn resided there until 1962, when she moved with her family to Edina.
In 1967, she graduated from Hopkins High School.
Kathryn married Gary Allen Larson Dec. 7, 1968. They made their first home in Minneapolis, and, in 1969, their first child, a daughter, arrived, Tiffany Anne.
The family moved to Waverly, and in 1973, a second child, a son, James-G Allen was born.
In July of 1977, the family relocated to Garrison, ND. In 1987, Kathryn and Gary were blessed with a third child, a son, Curtis S. Loe Allen.
The family moved back to Minnesota in 1991, and settled on a small hobby farm outside of Howard Lake.
In 1993, Kathryn started working for the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School District as a paraprofessional. She enjoyed working with students, and also spent many years at the Holy Trinity School in Winsted.
In her spare time, Kathryn enjoyed reading, baking, travel, and sitting on the deck visiting with her family and friends. She also enjoyed quiet times, and loved to listen to the wind and watch the leaves. Kathryn‘s greatest joy were her three grandchildren.
