Peacefully on December 23, 2011 at the Carman Hospital, Mabel Larsen passed away after a short illness.

She was pre-deceased by her husband, Oskar Larsen, in 1975; her parents Peter and Eva Friesen; twin sister Gladys in infancy; sisters Viola Thiessen, Kathleen Wiebe, Annie Hiebert and Clara Epp and by one brother, Art Friesen. She is survived by sisters Eva Shirtliff and Eileen (Walter) Wiebe and brothers Clifford (Anne) and Edwin (Rita) Friesen. She will be lovingly remembered by her two step-daughters, Anna Baum and Linda (Wayne) Watt, her grand children Shelley (Daniel) Gagne, Robyn (Chris) Olson and Jonathan Baum. Her "adopted" grandchildren Coreen (Craig) Johnston and Jeff (Andrea) Hart and their children had a special place in her heart as did their parents, Heather and Rod Hart.

Mabel was born in Wymark, Saskatchewan and spent her early years in the nearby village of Springfeld. The family moved to the Starbuck area when she was a young girl and she completed her schooling there. She went on to attend Winnipeg Bible College and to train as an LPN at Princess Elizabeth Hospital where she worked for a number of years before moving to Carman to work in the hospital there. In 1963 she received her diploma in Obstetric and Pediatric Nursing from the Pierre School of Practical Nursing in Pierre, South Dakota. She married Oskar Larsen in 1966 and moved to the Elm Creek area where they lived until Oskar's death. She returned to Carman in 1975 and continued her nursing career there until her retirement. She enjoyed travelling and following her retirement, she enjoyed volunteering at the MCC store.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Carman Hospital Palliative Care or the Mennonite Central Committee.
