It is with great sadness that the family of Linda F. Larson announces her passing on Sunday, March 11, 2018. Ms. Larson of Atlanta, Georgia is survived by her mother, Leona H. Fennell of Walterboro, South Carolina, her daughter and son-in-law, Laycie and Todd Ewing of Atlanta, and her son and daughter-in-law, Werner Laurin Larson III and Heather Berry Larson of Walterboro. She also has two precious granddaughters, Laurin Elizabeth Ewing and Lilly Larson. Also sadly left behind, is her faithful and loving companion of 24 years, Allen Osborne of Atlanta.
Ms. Larson, originally from Walterboro, graduated from Greenbriar Boarding School in West Virginia in 1965 and then moved to Atlanta to pursue a degree in fashion merchandizing. She had an artistic soul and spent most of her life behind her sewing machine making cloths, teddy bears, ducks, and doll babies. She loved old movies, Westerns in particular, was a prolific reader and had an incredible sense of humor. She made an immense impact on her two children and despite their loss, they will press forward with their lives with courage and confidence because of her unconditional love and never ending support.

Larson will be held 11:00 AM, Saturday, March 17, 2018 in the Chapel of Parker-Rhoden Funeral Home, 117 Paul Street in Walterboro, SC 29488 or www.parkerrhodenfuneralhome.com.

She Knew Me
My mother always knew
the me that others didn’t know.
The deeper part of me
that thought and felt.
She knew where my belongings were,
the ones I couldn’t find;
My socks, my keys, my wallet,
my favorite missing belt.
She knew just what I loved to eat
and when to make each dish.
The way she knew remains a mystery.
How did she sense my troubled times
and help with every hurt?
I truly had a mom who loved
and gave herself for me.
I’m grateful for the precious years
I’ve had and known her love.
Her memory will live
within my heart.
But God has called her to
His side to live forevermore.
I cannot hold her back.
I know my mother must depart.
