Larie was creative and enjoyed many crafts, especially sewing, knitting, quilting and ceramics, and macramé. She was an incredible seamstress who sewed many items of clothing and Halloween costumes for her children and grandchildren. She volunteered for hospice and the local hospital and cared for many individuals over the years. She was an active member of Catholic Daughters in Winner, SD, and she and Art were always active in their local parishes as eucharistic ministers, and leading couple faith groups. Playing golf with Art, on a league and during trips across the country, was something she loved, and she was proud to have won trophies in local golf tournaments. Larie also loved reading and word puzzles and read often to her children and grandchildren. Her family and spouse benefited from her love of travel, and she planned cross country camping trips when their children were young, and later organized many trips to different parts of the country for her and Art after his retirement.
She and Art raised their family in many locations: Hibbing, Minn.; Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.; Emmetsburg, Iowa; Winner, South Dakota; and Grand Island, Neb.
Art Krick was the manager of the J.C. Penney store in Winner.
In 2003, they moved to Omaha and became members of St. Vincent DePaul parish.
