Ella Marie Larson was born May 7, 1921, in Sanish, Mountrail, North Dakota. She seemed in perfect health until she was 12 years old when she developed epilepsy (later suspected this developed from a head injury she sustained in a fall from her horse). She then developed a very fast moving crippling arthritis that seemed to set into every joint in her body. She was bedfast for more than two years and this was after she had already started high school. Ella's courage was very strong at all times and she was determined to make the best of her life.

Ella pretty well recovered from the worst of the arthritis; however it left its telltale mark on her hands and other joints. She was never able to return to school but grew in maturity and understanding. She learned to play the piano and sing with her father.

After the family had settled in Brush Prairie, Washington, Ella had an opportunity to take a trip to visit friends in California. It is suspected it was on this trip that she contacted a disease which filled up her lungs and forced her to give up her existence on this planet, January 2, 1955. Her trust in Jesus grew stronger as the years went by and she was excited about the early opportunity of going to live with her Lord.

Survivors include her parents, Ed and Mary Larson; brothers, Med, Shirley and David Larson; sister, Nell Powell and nieces and nephews whom she adored. She is buried in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery, Vancouver, WA.
