LaRue went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 27th at the age of 84 surrounded by the love of her family. She was a strong woman of faith who left a legacy her entire family is inspired to continue - a tradition of deep love and care that extended beyond family to neighbors and friends along her path.
