Mary Jane Larson of Rock Creek (formerly of Minneapolis) passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, Monday, March 4, 2019 at the Continuing Care Center of Grantsburg at the age of 91.
Mary Jane was born August 23, 1927 to Edward and Alice (Swanson) Heikkinen in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Mary Jane will be deeply missed by her church community, her “Grantsburg kids,” and the many people touched by her loving and gracious spirit. Mary Jane had the gift of evangelism and we are sure she was greeted in heaven by many who are there because of her witness to the saving power of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
Mary Jane is survived by her children: Valerie (Tom) Muths of Coon Rapids, Curt (Trish) Larson of Minneapolis, and Jan Larson of Rock Creek; grandchildren: Rex Dalzell, Dale Curtis (Brenda) Larson, Rebecca (Parnell) Mahoney, and Joelle (Chris) Sanny; 13 great-grandchildren; many other relatives and beloved friends.
Mary Jane was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Alice Heikkinen, and beloved husband, Dale Larson.
