LaRue Anne Henry Miles of Evergreen Estates in Lancaster, Pennsylvania peacefully passed away on August 8, 2019 at the age of 95.
She received her Masters Degree in Education from Penn State University. She attended Mercy Hospital School of Nursing while working toward her degree in education.
After retirement in 1985, LaRue took her experiences to Oklahoma and fulfilled her life-long dream of living with the Cherokee Indians. LaRue lived at the Oaks Indian Mission for 25 years, where she full immersed herself in the Cherokee culture by caring for children, mastering the language and singing in the Cherokee Choir.
Her last days were spent in peaceful relaxation in Pennsylvania with her family. Her remains will re returned to Oklahoma and buried on sacred Cherokee Indian land at the Oaks cemetery at a later date.
To honor her years of service at the Oaks Mission, a memorial ceremony will be held September 5, 2019 at 2 p.m. in the Commons Room at the mission.
Refreshments will be served in the dining hall after the informal ceremony. Everyone will be welcome to attend and share stories of memories made with LaRue.
