Although first a loving wife and mother, she worked for years at the First State Bank of Rio Vista, Rangeaire/Texas Lime and retired as a switchboard operator from Johnson County Memorial Hospital.

LaRue shared a wink and knowing smile with Mike, Pat and those she loved, even as she forgot most of her past. She loved others as Jesus loved her.
