Jeanette G. Larson

Jeanette G. (Hugar) Larson of Hyde passed away peacefully Tuesday, October 1 at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA.

She was born March 10, 1953 at Philipsburg State General Hospital to the late Paul C. & Gladys M. (Lucas) Hugar.

Jeanette was a 1971 graduate of Clearfield Area High School. On June 12, 1982, she married Gustave A. “Gus” Larson who preceded her in death on January 20, 2011.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her only son, Michael Andren Larson on December 29, 2018 and a brother and sister-in-law, Thomas and Pat Hugar of Pittsburgh in 2001 and 2018 respectively.

Jeanette will be dearly missed by her niece LuAnn Shifter (David) of Frenchville; sister Nancy (George) Verost of Philipsburg; brother Max (Loretta) Hugar of Montgomery, PA and many dear friends including Jeff and Heather Hoover of Hyde; Jannette Sass, Clearfield and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was a member of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, Karthaus. She previously worked at Shortway Products and most recently worked in Registration at the Clearfield Hospital, retiring from there in 2016. She graduated from DuBois Business College in 2005 with the degree of Medical Transcriptionist.

Jeanette taught herself to play the guitar as a teenager and will long be remembered by many for her music and beautiful singing voice at many community events including the American Cancer Society Radiothon in the 1970’s.

She will always be remembered for bringing a smile to everyone’s face. Her easy going personality and sense of humor made her beloved by all who met her. Even in the last days of her illness, she was still making the nurses laugh. She touched the lives of everyone she met. She was an avid reader, especially books of U.S. historical events and enjoyed doting on her two pups that she leaves behind, Cobbie and Cubbie, affectionately called “the boys”. They will miss her companionship.

At her request, there will be no public visitation. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the Bennett and Houser Funeral Home, Inc. of Clearfield with Rev. Kenneth J. Leonard officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Clearfield County SPCA, 275 21st St., Clearfield, PA 16830.

Jenny's husband, Gus, was my cousin. Gus and Jenny came to my home in Grampian to visit and came for dinner also. I enjoyed the closeness we shared. When Gus passed away, I felt such a loss and I wouldn't let Jenny alone. We talked often over the phone but, since I no longer drove, couldn't go to see her.
Jenny is where she wants to be right now. She is with her husband and son and I'm sure there was a wonderful heavenly reunion when she went home to be with her family.
I'll never forget you Jenny and know you're happy right now. Rest in peace dear friend.
