Obituaries » Teresa Kerns Larson

Teresa Kerns Larson, 88, of Nokesville, the last of her generation, passed away Saturday, November 30, 2019, at the Novant Health UVA Prince William Medical Center in Manassas. 

She was born May 4, 1931, in Fauquier County, to the late, Joseph P. “Bay” and Bettie Fletcher Kerns. Joseph Franklin and Agnes Fletcher Kerns were her paternal grandparents.

Teresa’s younger years were spent at Rose Hill Farm at Greenwich in Prince William County. She graduated from Brentsville District High School in Nokesville, where she was a majorette. 

She met James Russell Larson (from Nebraska), in the candy store in Warrenton, while he was stationed at Vint Hill Farm Station Army base. They married September 27, 1951, in Rockville, Md. 

Her young married life as an Army wife took her on lots of adventures with Jim, in Washington, D.C., Hanau, Germany; Ft. Monroe, Ft. Benning, Georgia, Ft. Richardson, Arkansas, Ft. Sam Houston, Texas, and numerous other places. They retired in 1972, did a lot of traveling and then settled in Nokesville to be near her home place. Her life made her an independent lady, who retired from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. 

She is survived by her daughter, Teresa “Terry” Ann McCuin of Remington; a son, James Jeffrey Larson, of San Antonio, Texas; four grandchildren, Tricia Cottle (Chuck) of Florida, Tommy McCuin, of Nokesville, Sandy Puryear (Troy) of Remington and Cathrine Larson, of Kerrville, Texas; six great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Edward Fletcher Kerns (Mary); a sister, Evelyn Frances Webster (Bill); a sister, Lizzie Annette Fecteau (Ted); Joseph Peyton Kerns Jr.; Donald Ray Kerns (Lois), and her beloved husband, James Russell Larson. 

The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, December 8, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. The service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, December 9, at the funeral home, followed by interment at Quantico National Cemetery.
