Issue Date: August 2, 2018
Ethel May (Price) Larson, 93, passed away July 29, 2018, surrounded by family.
Born April 30, 1925, to Emery and Clara Price, she married Robert Larson in 1945 and he preceded her in death on May 26, 1984.
She loved making chocolate covered cherries, seafoam (divinity), fudge and chocolate Easter eggs and giving them to family, friends and others who touched her life.
In later years, when it was difficult for her to make candy, she taught her granddaughters how to make their favorites. She enjoyed going to lunch with her friends on Sundays after attending Zion Lutheran Church in Peshtigo, but especially enjoyed visiting with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
For many years, she worked at Peshtigo National Bank until retiring in 2001. Although, she planned never to leave Peshtigo, in November 2017 she moved to Emerald Ridge Assisted Living in Neenah to be closer to her family.
She is survived by two daughters, Wendy (Steve) Siracusa and Dolly (Peter) Fritz and grandchildren, Kim (Curt) Basnett, Stephanie (Mike) Burcusa and daughter, Rose, Ben (Heather) Fritz and son, Aiden, Alice (Mike) Arft and children Amiya, Trinitee, Chase and Logan; Sarah Fritz (Bryce Carlson) and Spencer Fritz.
Including her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; a son, Bobby and four sisters, Loretta, Alice, Helen and Jean.
Visitation will be held at Berth and Rosenthal Funeral Home on Wednesday, Aug. 1 from 3 p.m. until time of the funeral service at 5 p.m.
