Born and raised in Tomah, I attended Tomah High School and University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. In 1964 I married Terry Larkin, worked at Northwest Telephone Company long distance and accounting departments, then taught piano and organ lessons for over twenty-five years.


In 1978, purchased a motel, mobile home park and service station complex in Tomah. Terry was a partner in Larkin’s GMC dealership, so I managed the “Lark Inn”.


Terry and I have three children, seven grandchildren and two great grandsons.


Sixteen years ago, I became actively involved with the Area Community Theatre. I helped to find a new location for the organization when they were forced to leave their longtime home at Fort McCoy and I was instrumental in the purchase of the former CenturyTel building, which ACT now occupies. As a board member, I’ve held the positions of Box Office Manager, Treasurer and Director of Development. Terry and I usher at many performances, help with fundraisers and have been involved with the recent renovations. I’ve enjoyed meeting many wonderful people through ACT.


It will be a privilege to represent all of the ACT members as their President for the next two years.  Performing arts is my passion. I would hope that my business experience would be an asset in this position and at this exciting time.

I have loved theater since I was a small child, and have been involved in organized theater in various capacities since the eighth grade. Upon my retirement in 2012 from the Tomah Area School District I was ready to spend more time at ACT. I am currently the ACT Board’s treasurer, one of the box office managers, and public relations chair.


I co-directed “The Queen of Bingo” for ACT, and have taken supporting roles in “The Sound of Music and Oliver”.  In February 2018 I will play Abby Brewster in “Arsenic and Old Lace”. I look forward to many years working to promote live theater through Area Community Theatre.
