Renee “Stella” Larson, 56, of Mabel, died Friday, August 2, 2019, at her home, surrounded by family.
Renee was born February 9, 1963, in Rockford, Ill., to Richard and Patricia (Ostern). She graduated from the Spring Grove High School in 1981, where she was active in sports, especially basketball and softball. She worked in road construction for a short time, then with the family business Larson Well Drilling, and ServiceMaster before starting her own cleaning business “Stellar Cleaning.” On July 3, 2010, she married Roger Lanswerk at their home in Mabel. Renee enjoyed spending time with family, especially her grandchildren. She also enjoyed sports, working on her yard and garden, and just being outside. Baking and cooking for friends and family brought her almost as much pleasure as those who got to enjoy it.
Renee is survived by her husband Roger Lanswerk of Mabel, a daughter, Amanda (Mervin) Lambright of Mabel; stepson Jake, grandsons Keaton and Kaleb; her mother, Pat Blagsvedt of Spring Grove; stepmother Marcia Larson of Mabel, a brother, Russell (Karen) Larson of Mabel; niece and nephews Hayley, Jordan, and Tyler. She was preceded in death by her father, Richard; a brother, Rick “Julio”; and stepfather Kenny “K.B” Blagsvedt.
