Obituary: Alice Mae (Ulmen) Larson

Oct. 3, 1922 – May 2, 2019

Alice Mae (Ulmen) Larson, 96, died surrounded by her grateful and loving family.

She was  born in Appleton on October 3, 1922. She graduated from Appleton High School in 1940. She  married Owen Larson on July 13, 1946. Alice and Owen lived and raised their family of nine in Milwaukee, Clintonville, Neenah, and eventually retired in Sister Bay.

During those years of raising children and supporting her husband as he built his medical practice, she found time to golf, play bridge, sew, knit, crochet, garden and travel. Alice lived her life dedicated to creating a loving and caring home for her husband and children. They are indebted to her for the unconditional love she demonstrated through her strength, selflessness, patience and steadfastness.

Alice is survived by four sons, Mark (Linda), Rick (Sue), Scott, Jim (Peggy); four daughters, Mary (Tom), Ann (Michael), Terri (Bob), Amy (Kelly); 14 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and four nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Owen; parents, Martha and Henry Ulmen; brother, Lester (Edee); sister, Marie; son Jeffrey; and grandson Matthew.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Stella Maris Parish in Sister Bay on Friday, May 10, at 11 am, with Rev. David Ruby officiating. Alice will be laid to rest next to her husband and son in St. Rosalia’s Cemetery.

Family and friends may gather at the church, 10-10:45 am.
