Astrup was the second wife of Professor Laur. Larsen. She was born in Grue, Norway. She moved to America after marrying Professor Larsen in 1872. Much like Mrs. Brandt, Mrs. Larsen was very hospitably toward the students, mending their clothes and hosting them in her home. After Professor Larsen’s death, Mrs. Larsen moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota with her daughters Karen and Ingeborg in 1915. Later she and her daughters moved to Northfield, Minnesota. Mrs. Larsen died November 19, 1923.
