Patricia Larson was born on January 18, 1931 in Little Falls MN, to the late George and Linnie “Deat” Larson from Swanville, where she lived in most of her life. She married Rene Tousignant in 1958 and had 2 children, Jane (Stevens) and Linnie Tousignant. Rene passed away in 1975 and Pat remained in Swanville until she married Wilfred Altrichter in 1988. They moved to North Pole Alaska and lived there for 3 years before returning to Swanville, where she remained until her passing. Wilfred died in 2008. Pat most enjoyed having friends and neighbors (and sometimes even family members!) stopping by to visit and share a cup of coffee. She loved her cats, watching birds at the feeder, phone calls from family and friends, and visits from her grandchildren.
Pat is survived by her daughters, Linnie Tousignant of Little Falls, MN and Jane (Todd) Stevens of Merrifield, MN; grandchildren, Danny Tousignant, Christopher, Kate, Michelle, Benjamin and Emily Stevens, and many other loving family members and friends.
Pat was preceded in death by her husbands, Rene Tousignant and Wilfred Altrichter; her parents, George and Deat Larson, and her sister, Phyllis McGreevy.
