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 
very special.

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. 
Larson III.

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.
