Roz Larman LA Times Obituary
Click to read article

gofundmeWhen Roz left us Monday, October 10th, it was quick and unexpected. Through our grief, we searched her office until the living trust paperwork was found. After more investigation, we soon discovered that her accounts were ravaged by her long-term care needs in 2014. Howard’s careful plan to provide for Roz in his absence was successful up until Monday. Words will not sufficiently express our gratitude for your willingness to help give Roz the dignified cremation and memorial service she deserves.

        My mom, Roz Larman, passed way unexpectedly on October 10. It was a big shock to all. She had recently suffered a heart attack and a stroke, but her doctor expected her to recover. Roz and my father Howard dedicated their lives to presenting Folkscene. The passion and connection my parents had to the music was unbeatable. Roz was still scheduling guests up until her recent illness.

        Folkscene will continue as a collaboration between long time program engineer Peter Cutler, Deborah Hand-Cutler, Kat Griffin and myself. We plan to bring you the same quality programing that Roz and Howard brought you, which will include new interviews, live concerts and all of the latest new releases. Please check back to this website for updates on the radio show.  We’ll also have a Go Fund Me link for those of you who wish to be a part of the solution to help meet some of the expenses in celebrating Roz’s life.
