Obituary for June S. (Quist) Larson
June Susan Quist Larson was born to Vince and Myrna Quist on May 20, 1950 in Amery, Wisconsin. She attended school in Milltown, and graduated from Unity High School with the class of 1968. June has lived in Milltown almost her entire life, except for the few months she worked for Control Data Corp. in Arden Hills, Minn. For those months she lived in Anoka, Minnesota.

While working for Control Data, Kenneth Rogers, manager of the Milltown Bank, and a friend of the family, came and asked her Dad if she would like to come back to Milltown, and work for him as a teller at the State Bank of Centuria, Milltown branch. She welcomed the offer to move back to Milltown, and was a very dedicated, loyal employee there for forty-three years. She worked through five name changes, and three different owners. She had a great many customers who always wanted to see her and trusted so very much. She retired from the bank in 2013.

While in school, she developed a huge interest in playing the guitar. She was very skilled and learned to play it very well. She could play so well, she gave lessons and taught others. She first started playing at dances with Dale Larson, which was Toms father. They were called the Good Timers. She then joined a group called: THE POWDER PUFFS which was an all girl band. Another band was the Satin Dolls. She also played with Jim Armstrong. June was also very wise, and put most of her money earned from guitar playing in a savings account.

On June 8, 1974, she married Thomas Larson with whom she played with as a little girl. He lived in the house across the street, and also graduated from Unity with the class of 1968. While planning their wedding, they were also having their home built where they still live today. Her hard earned savings were a big help to them now.

June and Tom had two wonderful adult children: Marnee Ruth and Michael Thomas. June and Tom were very happy they could raise their children in a wonderful small town like Milltown. They are very proud of their children and what they are doing. Michael is engaged to Fallun Flodin. Fallun had two wonderful children, Mason and Camille. June and Tom are Grandma and Grandpa to these wonderful kids.

June attended church services at the Milltown Lutheran Church where she was baptized, confirmed, and married.

A few years ago, Tom and June bought a small cabin on Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. June called it a cabin, but it was a very nice home, just small. It was only a short distance from their home in Milltown so they could easily go there often. They loved being at their cabin and many joyful weekends were spent there. They had a very nice pontoon boat and went fishing as often as they could. June loved fishing on the lake and being at their cabin. The caught fish were very generously shared with family and friends. June and Tom always welcomed visitors and were the perfect host and hostess!

June has always been an Andy Griffith fan and has watched the show often. They watched it as their kids were growing up every night while having their supper. There was always a lesson to be learned. June still watched it often.

In January, 2014, she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. She was treated with chemotherapy for several months. She fought courageously to live as normal a life as possible for as long as possible.

June was very gifted in using a crochet hook and a sewing machine to make a large variety of craft items. You cannot count the quantity of Afghans shes made. She could crochet a kitchen towel holder in almost minutes. She made microwave soup bowl holders and even sold them at craft fairs. June loved to crochet and going to the craft fairs and went to them often even after she was on chemo. She was a very unselfish woman and was always giving these lovely things to others. I think most of us either have or definitely have seen some of her beautiful craft items.

She will be greatly missed by: husband, Tom; daughter, Marnee and her husband, Lance Kugler; son, Michael and fianc, Fallun and her two children, Mason and Camille; sister, Jean and her husband, Leon; the Quist family; the Larson family; nieces, nephews, cousins, other family members, and a great many friends.


June passed away Friday, December 13, 2014 at their residence in Milltown. Visitation will be held at the Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, WI on Thursday, December 18th from 4 to 7:00 p.m. Funeral services will be held on Friday, December 19th at Milltown Lutheran Church at 2:00 p.m.

An online guestbook is available at or . Arrangements are entrusted to Rowe Funeral Home of Luck, 715-472-2444 and the Northwest Wisconsin Cremation Center in Milltown, 715-825-5550.
