LaRue Johnson, 92, of Kansas City, MO, passed away on Monday, August 12, 2019. A graveside service will be held at 2:30pm on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at Oakland Cemetery in Independence, MO. LaRue was born on September 3, 1926 to Rufus and Stella (Phillips) Johnson in Jackson County, MO. LaRue grew up in and graduated from high school in Grain Valley. Just a year later, in 1946, while working at Armco, she met and married Roland Johnson and the two started their 71-year journey together. They purchased their house in Independence in 1952 and LaRue spent 62 years making it a warm, loving home for their two boys. LaRue was an excellent homemaker, mother and wife and was also a talented seamstress. She was funny and sarcastic and good at remembering details of others’ lives. She will be remembered fondly by the nursing staff at Kingswood. LaRue is survived by her sons, Alan (Dawn) Johnson and Tim (Jacque) Johnson; grandchildren, Leslie (Josh) Sharon; Patric Johnson, Zachary Johnson, Chelsea Johnson, and Miranda Johnson; and great grandchildren, Casen, Stella and Maverick Sharon. She was preceded in death by her husband, Roland Johnson.
