Rogene Rose Larsen walked into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Wednesday morning, May 10, 2023. She passed in her sleep after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

She was born on December 25, 1933, in the Town of Saxeville, in the same house her father was born in. Rogene was the first of fifteen children born to Kenneth and Winne (Wilson) Larsen. She lived in Pine River the first seven years of her life before the family moved to the Waukau- Rush Lake area. She was educated in the one room Foote School before entering Omro High School from which she graduated in 1951.

Rogene enjoyed her family very much whether it was while eating out or playing cards. She was an avid Elvis collector with a whole room full of items to prove it.

She was a member of the Waukau United Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday school teacher, financial secretary and a member of the audit committee. Rogene was willing to help out wherever she was needed.

Rogene worked several jobs in her lifetime. She retired from Printco in Omro in 1999 and from the Miles Kimball Company in 2016. She loved traveling with her sisters by Amtrak out to Oregon to visit relatives and she took many bus trips down to the Fireside Theatre in Fort Atkinson.

Rogene is survived by her sons, Larry (Cindy) Larsen and Wayne (Barbara) Larsen; eight grandchildren, Shawn, Greg (Teri), Tina (Dan), Scott (Nikki), Kara (Kenny), Amanda (Jim), Jodi (Jason), and Randy (Nikki). She is also survived by many step-grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Rogene is further survived by six brothers, Dean (June) Larsen, Inert (Lori) Larsen, Rex (Daryl) Larsen, Chris (Jill) Applebee, Fred Applebee and Steve Applebee; four sisters, Vernita Fink, Laurel Franz, Linda Treichel, Kathy Spanbauer; sisters-in-law, Sharon Larsen and Helen Larsen.

Along with her parents, Rogene was also preceded in death by a son, Randy; daughter, Dawn; two special great-grandchildren, Danyka and Domynick; her step-father, Fred Applebee; two brothers, Kenneth Larsen, Richard Larsen; two sisters, Diane Campbell and Robin Larsen; four brothers in infancy, Keith, Larry, Jerry and David; and brothers-in law, Robert Fink, David Campbell and Carlton Franz.

A visitation for family and friends will be on Sunday, May 14, 2023, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Mueller Funeral Home 904 E. Main St. Winneconne. Visitation will continue on Monday, May 15 from 9:00 to 10:45 a.m. at the Waukau United Methodist Church 2644 State Rd 116, Waukau.
