Emma La Rue Goldsmith, 82, passed away Monday, December 24, 2012 at Coastal Palms Nursing Home in Portland.
La Rue was born on February 9, 1930 in Ira, Texas, the tenth child of ten children. Her family moved to Harlingen, Texas in a Model A Ford shortly after her birth. She married Milton C. Goldsmith in Kingsville, Texas. She was a 1947 graduate of Harlingen High School. La Rue and her family moved from Combes, Texas to Portland in 1966. She served many years as secretary for the Portland Church of Christ where she was a longtime member.
Her three children Lloyd Goldsmith and wife Mary of Abilene, Texas, Dovie Price of Calallen, Texas, and Michael Goldsmith and wife Amy of Portland, Texas survive La Rue.
