Catherine passed away at the Samaritan Home in West Bend on March 26,
2012. Her legacy will live on in those lives she touched throughout
her 95 years.
Catherine was born on the family farm in the town of Wauwatosa on May
24, 1916, to Charles and Helen Benzing. She later married Andrew C.
Larson Jr. on July 5, 1943, at St. Ceceliaís Catholic Church in
Mequon. Their marriage was blessed with six children.
Catherine was a longtime active member at St. Francis Borgia Catholic
Church and was a member of the Homemakerís Club in Mequon. She loved
to garden and was especially fond of roses. Catherineís true love,
however, was spending time with her family and friends. She always
put her family before herself, which was evident at all of the
holiday parties. She made everyone in the family feel welcome and so
Catherine is survived by her beloved husband, Andrew C. Larson Jr.;
her children, Gail (Edgar) Liesenberg, Sandy (Al) Verfuerth, Pam
Mixer, Scott (Marlene) Larson and Jeff Larson; and brother, Charles
Benzing. She is further survived by 14 grandchildren, 17 great-
grandchildren, other relatives and friends.
Catherine was preceded in death by her parents and a son, Andrew C.
The family would like to thank the loving and caring staff at the
Samaritan Home in West Bend for all of their care and compassion for
the past five years.
