Ari Larson

d. September 17, 2021

"It is with sorrow that the City of Fillmore announces that Council Member Ari Larson passed away suddenly on September 17th, 2021. Our entire community mourns Ari’s loss. She was a woman who loved her family and saw the Fillmore community as an extension of that family. Ari was a longtime Fillmore Resident and was very active in the community. She was committed to numerous charitable efforts. Ari was active in many local and county-wide organizations. Her ties with the community of Fillmore and County of Ventura were like no other. Ari served on numerous boards including but not limited to: the Fillmore City Council, Soroptimist International of Fillmore, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley, Heritage Tourism Bureau, Santa Clara Valley Hospice, Rotary Club of Fillmore, Member of Civic Pride, Girls Scouts of Heritage Valley, Relay for Life of Heritage Valley, Ventura County Garden Club, and many others. Elected in 2020, Ari quickly became a respected voice on the City Council. She served as the City’s representative on the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging and the Citizen's Advisory Committee and the Ventura Council of Governments. She was also named Fillmore’s 2019 Citizen of the Year. Despite her short time on Council, Ari made an impact on the community. Her connections to the community, her straight-forward manner, and her thoughtful approach earned her the respect of staff, elected officials, and the public. “We are devasted and in shock. Today we lost a great soul. Ari was loved by the entire community of Fillmore. She impacted many citizens lives and will be greatly missed,” said Mayor Mark Austin. City Manager, David W. Rowlands expressed “our entire community mourns Ari’s loss. She was a wonderful person and an exemplary citizen; she will be greatly missed by everyone who admired her honesty and integrity.” On behalf of Fillmore’s City Council and staff, our thoughts and prayers are with Ari’s family and many friends. Our deepest sympathies go out to them."- Published by The Fillmore Gazette Writers September 22, 2021
