Jeanne M. (Larson) Ficocello, 66, longtime Como Park resident, died March 16. Born to Knight J. and Marian Larson on March 19, 1947, Jeanne brightened the life of anyone who had the honor and pleasure to know her. A graduate of Washington High School in St. Paul, Jeanne went to work for a local Teamsters union, for Gould Battery and later for Viking Sign Co. As hard as she worked, she also loved to be near friends, whether at Gabe’s by the Park or on the slot machines at Treasure Island Resort & Casino. Jeanne will long be remembered by family and friends as a beautiful, loving and sweet soul. Jeanne and her husband, “Fic,” were constantly giving to their family and friends, many remembering them by saying, “They’d take the shirt off their own back to help you out.” They loved each other and their daughter, Marilou, deeply and have left a huge hole in the hearts of many. Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry; brother, Bob Larson; and nephew, Rob Larson. She is survived by her daughter, Marilou Ficocello-Tabor (Zach); brother, David Larson (Joan); and sister, Janice Larson (Roger). A memorial visitation was held March 23 at Mueller-Bies Funeral Home, Roseville.
