Mildred “Millie” M. Larsen

Mildred (Millie) Marie (Coy) Larsen, age 78, passed away surrounded by love and family on February 25, 2017.

Mildred, daughter of Loren and Freda (Copus) Coy, was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin on January 31, 1939. Millie was united in marriage to the love of her life, Theodore (Ted) Larsen on September 10, 1955. Millie valued nothing more than her husband and family.

Ever the nurturer, she happily raised that family in a house often filled by neighborhood children and many pets. Millie had a heart full of love and joy, which she shared endlessly throughout her life. She genuinely loved people and never hesitated to tell them. She adored spending time with her many friends, always ready to offer a smile and cup of coffee, and delighted in hearing about their lives.

Her home was always a source of warmth and tenderness to those who visited, decorated by her prized collections of dolls and angels, and filled with photos of her beloved family. Millie and Ted’s marriage of 61 years remains a true love story for the ages. Their incredible partnership and love will transcend this lifetime and is an inspiration to all who witnessed it.

Millie is survived by her husband Ted, daughters Barbara Gabbei and Nancy (Kim) Crary, son in her heart Steven (Tina) Kellerhuis; grandchildren Nathan Crary, Amanda Gabbei, Cassandra Kenworthy and Angela Gabbei; great-grandson Montana Kenworthy; siblings and sibling-in-law Marion (Dorothy) Coy, Mary (John) Brown, Edward Sr (Marlene) Larsen, Mary Jean (Robert) Peterson, Elaine Larsen, Lucille Kuntz; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by parents Loren and Freda Coy, an infant brother; brothers-in-law Tom Larsen, Howard Larsen Jr and Robert Klemm; sister-in-law Clara Klemm, and other family and friends.

Services will be at the First United Church of Christ in Sauk City beginning at 1:00 pm with time to visit with Millie’s family, to be followed by the Memorial Service at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the First United Church of Christ, Sauk City, Wisconsin.
