LaRue touched the lives of so many, and always loved giving and getting eskimo kisses, especially from her 16 grandchildren and 37 great-grand children and Mammie knew 2 more were on the way! La Rue was the eldest of eight siblings and was greeted in heaven by her brothers; the late Ted Sentner, the late Richard Sentner, and the late Robert Sentner (Peggy), she is survived by Vince Sentner (Betty), Dolores Green (the late Harold), Paul Sentner (Tanya), and Fred Sentner (Mary Jo), cousins, and many, many nieces and nephews, and close friends. LaRue enjoyed her winters in Estero, Florida, with the highlight of the week her trip to Hurricanes to have dinner with her Florida family.
