Dorothy M. LaRue

We are saddened to announce that Dorothy LaRue, born 01/18/1924, passed away at the age of ninety on 11/16/2014 in Corona Del Mar, California, surrounded by her family. 

Dorothy was born in Pasadena, California to Peter Paul and Philomina Fischer.  In 1947, she married Ross LaRue and shortly thereafter moved to South Pasadena, California to start her family. In the late sixties, Dorothy, Ross and family moved to Orange County, where she has since resided.

Dorothy enjoyed raising her family and socializing with her friends.  She was devoted to her church where she often volunteered.

Dorothy is survived by her six children, Diane, Bill, Sharon, Richard, Jeanne and Beth; eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
