Betty Ann Larsen
Betty Ann Crosier Larsen, 75, passed peacefully in her sleep on December 23, 2020 in Richfield, in what must've been a happy Christmas reunion with her sons, candied yams to be had. Betty Ann once planned on penning her own obituary, but she ran into trouble when no newspapers would willfully publish a 33-page, obscenity-laced memoir of “some old broad from Salina with a lot to say.”
As an adopted child, Betty Ann spent a good deal of her life tracing her family lineage - one that dated all the way back to 18th U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant and famed pioneer “Return” Jackson Redden. It was a genealogy that she was proud of, almost as proud as she was of her Larsen and Crosier names in both Sevier/Summit counties and beyond. A jack-of-all trades, Betty jumped from journalism to public service and made many stops in between. Her cup was always full-to-the-brim with spunk, sass and, yes, downright absurdity. Her world travels were plenty, but she was always going to end up right back in her birthplace of central Utah.
Betty Ann is survived by her closest brother Robert (Jane) Crosier; son Marty (Theresa) Larsen; daughter-in-law, Brigitte Larsen; grandchildren: Haulsey, Porter, Dylan, Lacie, Wyatt and Sadie; as well as countless other friends and loved ones.
She is preceded in death by her beloved sons: Corey and Darrell; parents, Dwight and Dorothy Crosier; and brother Dwight.
Cremation services have been held. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com
