Marsa Larson

Marsa Larson, 64, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on October 7th in Rockford, IL. She was surrounded by her loved ones when Jesus came to get her.

Marsa is survived by her two children; daughter Heather (Bruce) Burgbacher of Aurora, IL and son Thad (Brittney) Larson of Mondovi, WI. Grandchildren Katelynn, Jaden, Logan, and Isabella Larson. Sister Sherie (Robert) Rosengren of Woodland Hills, CA. Also many more family members and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Ruth Griswold of Rockford, IL.

She taught Sunday school at First Evangelical Free Church and was involved in card and prayer ministry at Heartland Community Church. Marsa never stopped showing and telling others about Jesus and His love for them. She suffered trial after trial physically and emotionally, but never lost focus of her purpose.

    Heather and Thad,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers. Marsa was a very special person and we enjoyed many good times together. I will never forget the two of us taking the bus trip to the World’s Fair in Tennessee

  2. Heather and Thad,
    We just got home from visiting relatives in Colorado and heard your voice mail. I was so sad to hear about your mom. She was one of the nicest people I know. I am so sorry that we hadn’t been in touch more. I remember you both as children when she was my boss at BAIPA. She was the best boss!! You both were so very kind and thoughtful. I hope you are doing ok. You are in my thoughts and prayers! I will be at the service on Saturday. Many Hugs to you both!

  3. Dear Heather, Thad and Sherry
