Royanne (Young) Larson

Royanne Larson was born on March 16, 1938, and passed away on February 21, 2024. She was born in Salina, the daughter of Wayne and Ailene Young. She was the oldest of 14 children.

Royanne and Harold (deceased) were married for 64 years. Together they have six children: Shelly, Julie, Cindy, Mike (deceased), Joe (deceased) and Dawn. She has 16 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She loved spending time with her family; she loved following her kids and grandkids around wherever they lived and traveled.

She worked as a bank teller, a clerk at the Salina Auto Auction, and was The Best Mom Ever. She taught Julie how to be an accountant. Royanne spent many years being an office manager for her sons, Joe and Mike, and her grandson Evan. She was always eager to assist her family with any and all paperwork; she kept everything together behind the scenes. She thought that she was the most boring person in the room, but yet everyone wanted to be around her.

Royanne was an avid reader of suspense and mystery novels. She always read the last few pages of every book before she even started the book.

We will all miss her dearly.

Visitation will be Sunday, February 25, 5-7pm at Ryan Mortuary. Services will be Monday, February 26, at 10:00 am, at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church.
