Nicole A. Larson

Nicole A. Larson, 40, crossed the bridge to eternal life January 4, 2012.

Nicole was born March 8, 1971 in Cambridge, Minn. to Dwaine and Lorna (Swedeen) Larson. Nicole accepted Christ as her personal Savior at a young age and was baptized at Calvary Baptist Church. She graduated from Cambridge High School in 1989.

She attended Horst Beauty School where she became an esthetician. She went on to attend Anoka Technical College for surgical technician, but decided her calling was working as a lab technician. She was employed at Cambridge Medical Center for 17 years. Many patients specifically requested her for their labs because of her gentle touch.  Nicole loved spending time with her nieces and nephew and friends.

She will always be remembered for her kind loving spirit, her sense of humor, her love for animals, and her flare for fashion. Oh, how she loved her collection of purses.

She is survived by her parents, Dwaine and Lorna Larson; Grandmother, Ardis Swedeen; Sisters, Rhonda (Suresh) Sivarajah of Lino Lakes, and Julaine (Shawn) Ziemke of Stanchfield; Nephew, Sonjay Sivarajah; Nieces, Asha Sivarajah, Chelsey Schindeldecker, and Emily Schindeldecker; an Uncle, and many Aunts, cousins and friends.  She will be sadly missed by all.
