Lila Larsen Fenske

POLSON — Lila G. (Pajari) Larsen Fenske, age 102, fell asleep in death peacefully at her home on Jan. 6, 2024. Lila was born Aug. 16, 1921, in Becker County, Minnesota, to John and Alina Pajari. She was the sixth of 11 children.

On Oct. 12, 1940, Lila married Jack Larsen. They had five children: Dwight (Ruth), Gerald, Arlan (Sharon), Brenda (Rod) Learn, and Yvonne (Phil) Volk. She had 21 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, 21 great great-grandchildren. She is survived by all and her 96-year-old brother, Bill Pajari.
