Over the past year, the Thybony family has had to say good bye to Marilyn and now Ed Larsen. They were and always will be the cornerstone of the Thybony family. Ed and Marilyn, peas and carrots, you can hardly mention one without the other.


Marilyn had the family name which dates back to the early 1880's when her grandfather, William Thybony, a skilled painter arrived in Chicago from Sweden.  He opened a paint store on Chicago’s North side and ultimately launched the family into the paint & wallcovering business. 


The story of Ed and Marilyn began in 1945 while Ed was stationed at the Glenview Naval Air Station. They met and were married four months later.  It was then they began not only their life, but their business venture together.  In 1959 they opened and ran the Glenview location.  They spent many years building a successful business and a beautiful family.  They had three children, Ellen, Nancy and Chris.


Chris Larsen joined the business in 1974.  He still owns the stores located in Mundelein, Lake Bluff, and Glenview. 


Mr. and Mrs. Larsen taught us all that service, quality and expert advice are key in this business.  Their influence is what has helped this business to thrive and serve our communities.  More importantly, they demonstrated the value of family, faith and kindness.  For that reason they will be remembered fondly by their family, friends, employees and customers alike.
