Charleen was born November 3, 1937 in Menomonie Wisconsin to Leonard and Lorraine (Blake) Schutts. She was baptized and confirmed at Peace Lutheran Church in Menomonie WI. Charleen along with three other siblings; Donald, Dolores and Dewey (all under the age of 17) grew up and ran the family farm after her parents and younger sister passed away. Char was a teacher, not only in schools, but a teacher of all things of life. She graduated Boyceville High School in 1955 and went on to college receiving a teaching degree and honors. She was president of the Teachers Association. After graduation, she taught full time at Little Elk Creek and Tramway schools. Charleen married Gerald “Charlie” Larson on December 26, 1959 at Peace Lutheran church in Menomonie Wisconsin. Together they raised four children on the family dairy farm. Char continued to teach by substitute teaching until May 2017. She was a very hard working dedicated Christian. She raised her children with great values and strengths. Her prayers (The Lord’s Prayer) along with saying Jesus Loves Me and naming her children were a nightly ritual. Char loved her children and grandchildren deeply and attended all of their games turning down multiple requests to head down south for the winter months. She also loved crocheting, flower and vegetable gardens, usually donating most of her fruits of labor. Char was an avid softball player, playing in Connorsville with her daughters. She also loved spending time at the cabins up north, floating down the river, and pontooning, inviting everyone to come join the fun! To get around the 200 acre Larson farm she would jump on her yellow ATV. Afghans, doilies, quilts, hats, molasses cookies, jello eggs to name a few things that we will cherish forever that have been touched with love from “Grandma”. We will always Love You and Never forget the Love you brought to our family. Until we meet again...Love You More!!!!
