Dorothy Larson was born May 22, 1928, in Glendorado Township in Benton County to Arthur and Josie (Anderson) Kruger. She married Vego G. Larson on January 31, 1947. Dorothy and Vego made their home in Foley for decades. Some years after Vego’s death, Dorothy moved to St. Cloud.
Dorothy was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She also enjoyed seeing the world and visited three continents. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed entertaining her family and friends. As all who knew her will attest, she was a cat person and thus a succession of spoiled felines shared her home. In her later years Multiple Sclerosis caused mobility issues but Dorothy adapted, remained positive, and got around thanks to her van and trusty scooter. She was a member and past president of the Foley American Legion Auxiliary.
Dorothy is survived by her children Linda (Richard) Virden, son Vego Jon (Paula) Larson and two grandsons, Andrew and Wyatt, as well as dear relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents and husband. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Glendorado Lutheran Church or the National Mutiple Sclerosis Society.
