Ellen “Larue” Swanson

Proverbs 31:25-26   (25) She is clothed with strength and dignity. She can laugh at the days to come. (26) She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

Ellen “LaRue” Swanson, 73, went home to the Lord on March 7, 2023. LaRue is survived by her children; Greg Swanson (Toni Swanson), Shannon Swanson, Jeremy Swanson (Shelley Swanson), Carrie Swanson; her brother, Bryan “Flick” Transue (Regina Transue); grandchildren Chrissy Lachney (Madison Lachney), Zachery Swanson Davis, Amanda Swanson, Bradley LaFleur, Emily Swanson, Kamryn Swanson, Layne Swanson, Lauren Swanson, T.J.
