Kila Diane Larsen was born July 31, 1943 in Bedford, Iowa the daughter of Howard Hutcheson and Opal (Brown) Hutcheson. She grew up in Hopkins, Missouri and graduated from Hopkins High School in 1961. The year following her graduation was spent in Germany with her military family. She was united in marriage September 7, 1962 in Maryville, Missouri to her high school sweetheart, Leon Larsen. They were blessed with three children, Gregory, Keith and Diana.

Kila and Leon made their home in Hopkins until 1966 and then lived various places including California, Texas and New Market before settling in Yorktown in 1969. Kila provided child care in her home for thirty two years. She had a variety of interests and was always busy. Canning the produce from Leon’s garden kept her busy in the summer and fall. Cardinals and angels were a favorite of hers and she had an extensive collection. Kila enjoyed crocheting and quilting and belonged to the “Sew & Sew” club. She was a member of the Shambaugh Methodist Church and was active in the Iowa Share food group. Through the years, she enjoyed and belonged to several clubs including the Yorktown Women’s club. Her family was top priority and she thoroughly enjoyed being with her kid and grandkids. She enjoyed camping, fishing, traveling and going on jeep rides with Leon. A favorite pastime was the good conversations on the front porch!
