Eunice Larsen

     We have lost a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor, friend and role model.

  Eunice Loraine Larsen passed away in her sleep at the age of 86 on Nov. 30, 2020. She was surrounded by her loving family in her home. She leaves behind an adoring family and friends who now celebrate her incredible life.

  Eunice was the first child of Eddie and Olive Washburn. She was born Aug. 7, 1934, at Birch Bay on the family farm. She graduated from Blaine High School. She married Bennie M. Larsen in Ferndale in 1952. Bennie and Eunice moved to Ferndale and then Laurel where they raised their family.

  Eunice had an outgoing personality and loved people! She enjoyed long conversations and had many friendships. She worked in retail in Bellingham and Ferndale. Eunice had many passions; she loved cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, quilting, and working on projects with Bennie. Her biggest passion and love, though, was her family.

  Eunice was preceded in death by her husband, Bennie Larsen; and a sister, Ethel Montoure.

  Eunice is survived by her son, Al and wife Judy; her daughter, Debbie and husband Jeff; grandchildren Chad and wife Erica, Summer and husband Bryson, Nick, Ryan and wife Brandi, and Drew; great-grandchildren Nathan, Daniel, Vivian, Cruz, Logynn and Jeffrey; siblings Bonnie Larson and Merritt Washburn; and numerous nieces and nephews.

  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Meridian Public School Foundation (Bennie and Eunice Larsen) or the Lighthouse Mission.

  We will have a celebration of her life in the spring or summer so family and friends can pay tribute to this amazing woman.
