Margaret “Meg” Ann (McCallum) Larsen, 67, passed away peacefully on Jan. 4, 2022, from complications due to Multiple Sclerosis at Dawn Hill Home Rehab & Healthcare Center, formerly St. Elizabeth Manor, where she was a resident for nearly 22 years. Born in Providence, Meg was the daughter of the late Edward and Clare (Baker) McCallum.

Meg attended Bristol schools and graduated from Bristol High School in 1972. She worked at AMICA Insurance Company before leaving to raise her family in Barrington, R.I. Meg enjoyed sports, especially the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots. She loved talking about the players and watching the games. She had many cherished friends at the nursing home and enjoyed bingo, making crafts, sitting outside in the sun in good weather or roaming the halls to visit with her fellow residents.

Meg leaves behind her two children, Erica Bell and her husband Derek of Warwick, and Gregory Larsen of West Warwick; her sister, Clare White and her husband Paul of Barrington; her two brothers, Edward “Ted” McCallum and his wife Bonnie of Newtown, Conn., and James “Jim” McCallum and his wife Lucy of Bristol, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was the sister of the late John Baker McCallum.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Hope Hospice and Dawn Hill Home that cared for Meg for so many years with great compassion. As a long-term resident, Meg was loved by many current and former staff and residents. She will be missed dearly.

Services are with Smith Funeral and Memorial Services, 8 Schoolhouse Rd. Warren, RI. A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, at 11 a.m. in St. Mary’s Church, 330 Wood St., Bristol, RI. Burial is private. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name can be made to the Activities Program at Dawn Hill Home, 1 Dawn Hill Rd. Bristol, RI 02809. For tributes, please visit www.wjsmithfh.com
