LaRue was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a special friend to me and I loved her dearly. I’m glad she if free of the body that has held her back for so long. She will be missed but never forgotten. I pray for peace and comfort for her family.

Dear Bohner Family
Your wife & mother was the Relief Society President when my mother had some surgery done in the 1970’s. I approached her and asked to have the 6th Ward Relief Society to help her while she was recovering. My mother was not a member of the church, but Sister Bohner took great care in seeing that my parents were taken care of. Sister Bohner was the one who began to turn my mother’s heart towards the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It took my mother many more years to totally change her heart, but Sister Bohner definitely was the key to start opening that lock. I also have many great memories of time spent with Christine and Karen. You are an amazing family and I feel very blessed to have known you during my youth in Rose Park. I pray that you may be comforted during this time of mourning the loss of a beautiful wife and mother.

Dear Bohner family,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful mother, wife and grandmother. I grew to know her and love her as Karen and I grew up together. My mother, Connie Coates, and LaRue were traveling companions on many occasions, traveling around the world.
It has been my privilege to have been a recipient of her ever-present pleasantness and sweetness, even in the midst of her afflictions.
Please accept my deepest condolences and love for the Bohner family.

To the Bohner family,
Our world lost a beautiful and shining star. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you, not just now, but through those difficult days that lie ahead of you.
I loved your mom and have many wonderful memories of our times together. She helped me through many good times, but also difficult times. She’d smile at me and wrinkle her nose and squint her eyes. She made me laugh. I will never forget her! We were so blessed to live next door to your family.
I’m sorry I was unable to be with you and offer support. Sometimes life places obstacles in our path. You were all in my prayers yesterday, today and always.
