Britany Beth Larson was born December 26, 1983, in Hutchinson, Minnesota, the daughter of Quentin and Jolene (Moldestad) Larson. She was baptized as an infant at St. Anastasia Catholic Church, and confirmed in her faith as a youth at St. John’s Catholic Church in Hector. Britany attended elementary school at St. Anastasia in Hutchinson, and graduated with the Class of 2002 from the Buffalo Lake – Hector High School. She continued her education at Ridgewater College in Willmar and Rasmussen College in Bloomington, and earned her degree in Business Administration.
Britany was formerly employed with Mayo Hospital/Clinics, having worked in the St. Paul and Fairmont clinics.
Britany loved life, and was the life of every party. Her humor and laughter was infectious, and she made friends easily wherever she was. Britany, through her humor, could find a silver-lining in any difficult situation. Her wit and sarcasm resulted in many long running pranks with friends and family. She took great pride in making her house a home, and enjoyed decorating and DIY projects for what she coined the “Dollhouse.” Britany loved everything pop-culture, and never found a reality TV show she didn’t like. She adored her fur-baby Yorkie dog, Cooper Nicholas (he had to have a middle name!) who brought her great joy, and comforted her in difficult times. In turn, she showered him with love; buying him special outfits and making him special food. She loved her family deeply, and wanted nothing more in life than to make them proud of her.
Her quick witted humor, her bright smile and the twinkle in her eye will be dearly missed by many. Blessed be her memory.
