According to the Garrett Weekly Clipper of November 15, 1906:
Wife of Sylvester M. LaRue, entered into heavenly rest on Thursday,
1906, at Sacred Heart hospital, aged sixty-six years, five months and ten days. Although a constant sufferer for years, she was brave and cheerful to the end. Death to her was a welcome vistor, Conscious to the last she said to those about her, "Not my will but thine be done, O
Lord." She has been a member of the Christian Church for years and has left a silent influence for good which is a comfort to those who mourn the loss of a kind and gentle mother. On October 2 Mrs. LaRue met with a serious accident by falling into the basement at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Edward Hayes in Garrett, and from this injury and other complications she met her death. She has lived in Garrett with her daughter for the past thirteen years. One son, Aggie W., preceeded her to the better land June 22, 1880, aged seventeen years. She leave three
daughters and one son-Mrs. Edward Walker of Detroit, Michigan; Mrs Edward Hayes of Garrett, Indiana; Mrs James Curtis Austin of Angola, Indiana; and Mr. B. O. LaRue of Garrett, Indiana. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. O.L. Hull, pastor of the Church of Christ of
