Beverly Bea (Potter) Larson was born on February 8, 1934, the daughter of Dr. Charles and Marion Potter. She graduated from Forest City High School. On November 9, 1952 she married Wally Larson at the United Methodist Church in Forest City. They had three children, Stephen, Kay, and Barbara. Beverly was a stay-at-home mom on the farm in Joice for 15 years. The family then moved to Forest City to live in Doc Potter’s home on Main Street (where she grew up). She enjoyed working at the greenhouse and library. Beverly always loved to go places. Her joy was being with her children and grandchildren. They were everything to her. We will so miss her smile and laugh.
