Just had known Larue for many years. Had established my grooming business in Curwensville a few years ago and met her around that time late seventies-early eighties. A delight to be around, so full of life. A true joy to be around. Rest In Peace dear friend. With my extended sympathies to the family. Sincerely, Cindy Lou Bloom McDonald

LaRue, My hat’s off to you.
Growing up in the Linden Street neighborhood of Clearfield, LaRue’s rough collie “Val” was everyone’s TV Lassie. A much different place than today where the front door was only locked at night and the Clearfield Machine whistle kept us kids on a breakfast, lunch, and supper schedule and the street lights told us when to go home on a summer night after playing hide and seek. My sister would take me to LaRue and Joe’s house on Sunday nights to watch Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color as they had one of the few color TV’s in the neighborhood. What a great memory. Thank You , LaRue.
