Kathy Larkin Christopherson


We share fond memories of our classmate Kathy as we send heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of that gallant lady.  The following obituary is reprinted from the Peninsula Clarion, Kenai, AK.

Kathryn Larkin Christopherson (1953 - 2016)

Kathryn Larkin Christopherson lost her battle with cancer on Friday, April 15, 2016, at the age of 62.  

She was born May 10, 1953, in Livingston, Montana, to Donald and Annie Larkin, and lived at the family ranch on Mission Creek. She attended Gordon School through the eighth grade, and graduated from Park High School in 1971.  

Kathy received her teaching degree from Western Montana College, and taught school in rural Montana. She married Allan Christopherson in 1980, and the couple lived in Idaho, where they both taught school. In 1989, Allan and Kathy moved to Alaska, and have made their home there ever since.

Kathy received her Master's Degree and taught for nearly 40 years. She retired from full-time teaching in 2010, but continued to teach classes at Kenai Peninsula College until this past February. In Kenai, she was known as "The Tupperware Lady." 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Annie Larkin.  

She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Allan Christopherson; her sister, Bonnie Larkin, of Livingston, Montana; daughters Thi (Phil) Pijahn of Nikiski, and Kelly (Jon) Cronin of Fort Collins, Colorado; brothers-in-law Terry Christopherson and Craig (Kathy) Christopherson, both of Kalispell, Montana; as well as her two little granddaughters, Isabella and Lillian. She is also survived by her niece, Amber (Charles) Oberly, and nephew, Ben Quigley, both of the family ranch; nieces Chanel (Anton) Nikiforov of Roseville, California, Chelsea Christopherson of Kalispell, Montana; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kathy loved traveling with her family, and was able to do so every summer before retirement and traveled even more extensively after retirement. Being a nature lover her whole life, she enjoyed hiking, fishing and camping, as well as horseback riding in her younger days. She especially loved flowers and birds, and enjoyed her garden in Alaska. She was everyone's anchor, with her sunny disposition and calm, rational approach to everything.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date. The family requests that donations be made to The American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.
