LaRue was born to William and Hallie Hardy on March 6, 1928 in Avoca,
TX. She lived a joyful life for 80 plus years in the small country
towns of central west Texas.
LaRue married Bob Beauchamp on

life to her husband, daughter, church, and chosen vocation as a dental
assistant where for over two decades she delighted in telling Dr. Bill
Kemp how to run his practice. She enjoyed the fellowship and teachings
of her Baptist Sunday School classes in Haskell and Anson, and her
morning devotionals were a part of her daily life until she couldn't
remember where she put her Bible! LaRue, "MiMi", discovered what
little boys were made of as she relished in the joys of her four

the stages of Alzheimer's, Bill remained steadfast and committed in
the loving care of her daily life.
