Kathy Lynn Larson was born January 25, 1958 to Virgil and Norma (Graham) Larson in Carrington, ND. She spent some of her youth growing up in a suburb of Los Angeles, California, but eventually moved back to Carrington and graduated from Carrington High School in 1977. Kathy then attended Nursing School at North Dakota State School of Science in Wahpeton, ND and Presentation College in Aberdeen, earning her Bachelor of Science degree.
Kathy married her high school sweetheart, Marvin Fandrich, in Carrington on July 19, 1980. Kathy and Marvin were blessed with twin daughters, Shannon and Nicole, on November 15, 1983. Since their marriage, the couple has made and called Aberdeen their home.
There was no greater joy for Kathy than making good memories with family and friends. Kathy enjoyed her job as a nurse and the opportunity it gave her to help people. She cherished her co-workers and work families at Avera St. Luke’s and Sanford.
Kathy enjoyed life at the lake, trips with Marvin on their Harley Davidson motorcycle, and spending time with her children and four wonderful grandchildren. Her love of life, laughter, and willingness to help others will be missed by many people.
Those who will grieve this loss the most include Kathy’s children and grandchildren: Shannon (Josh) Shoultz and Casey and Eric and Nicole (Jeff) Grosz and Wesley and JoAan. Also honoring her memory are her five siblings: Mark (Pat) Larson, Leland (Hong) Larson, David Larson, and Joanna (LeRoy) Bettenhausen; as well as many brothers-and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.
Kathy is preceded in death by her parents, Norma and Virgil; her sister, Eva Larson; and her father-and mother-in-law, Edward and Margaret Fandrich.
