Private (Family Only) Funeral Mass will take place on Friday, October 28, 2022 at 11 a.m. at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in North Mankato, with public live streaming available at www.mankatomortuary.com. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to help with expenses and free time for the family to grieve.

Faith was born on December 3, 2002 in Rochester, the son of Terry and Roxanne (Renne) Larsen. She was born with a few heart defects and had undergone several invasive surgeries in her early years with us. As her condition became more stable, her checkups and trips to Rochester slowed down, but Faith did not. She graduated from Mankato West High School in 2021 and studied business administration at South Central College. She played lacrosse and basketball in high school, and played soccer and softball in her early years. Faith enjoyed being active, going out with friends, fishing, muddling, going to country concerts, making TikToks, taking selfies, traveling (especially to Florida) and chasing guys. Faith made sure she could live her life to the fullest and never took life too seriously. She lived more in 19 years than most in their lives. She was brave and sassy with a little sassy. She was the most kind hearted, lovable, pure and sweet soul we all knew. She has touched so many lives with her bubbly personality and genuine concern for others. She will be forever remembered by her parents, Terry and Roxanne from North Mankato; siblings, Samantha Larsen of St. Paul, Jennifer Larsen of Minnetonka, and Brian Larsen of North Mankato; paternal grandfather, Earl Dean Larsen of Blue Earth; her dogs, Stormy and Skyler; many aunts, uncles and cousins. Faith was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Bonnie Larsen; and maternal grandparents, Alan and Frances Renne. The family would like to thank Tyrel Maier for the prompt response in performing CPR, the medical professionals involved in Faith’s care, family and friends who have supported us emotionally and physically during these difficult times, those who have donated to the GoFundMe account and continued community support.
