Pearl Bryan Larsen was born at Bone Gap, Illinois, January 5, 1903, being the eldest daughter of Hugh and Esther Bryan. She lived with her parents at Bone Gap and attended the public schools there until the family moved to their new home at Morton, Minnesota in September 1918. The family then moved to Avon in the Spring of 1919. Here she met Ernest Larsen whom she married March 2, 1921. They established their home on a farm south of Redwood Falls where they lived one year, then they moved to a farm near Gilfillan which was their home for three years, after which they moved to their present home at Morgan in the spring of 1927.
Mrs. Larsen was the mother of nine children, three passing away in infancy, and she leaves four sons and two daughters who with her husband, mourn her passing. Sister Larsen was a spiritually minded person. In 1924 she affiliated herself with the Morgan Seventh-day Adventist church and here she maintained an active membership until her untimely decease. She was always doing for others instead of others doing for her. She had served as leader of the Dorcas society for several years and also was home missionary secretary, as well as having charge of the primary department of the Sabbath school. She passed away November 5, 1937. Her life span was brief but it was a life well spent, and has left a good influence as well as many pleasant memories to comfort us in our deep grief.
