On the afternoon of Saturday, June 8, 2019, heaven received a devilish angel when Shirley Elaine Rue passed at the Knolls West Convalescent Hospital in Victorville.
The last and most stubborn of six children born to Roy and Elizabeth Anthony in East Liverpool, Ohio, Shirley is survived by eight children: Tom VanFosson, Jamie VanFosson, Tim VanFosson, Dennis VanFosson, Brian VanFosson, Charlene Andrews, Connie Klein (with whom she resided), and Billy Rue; 25 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and one great-great granddaughter. Shirley will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
A local service will be held from noon until 1 p.m. at the Kern Hesperia Mortuary, 16120 Main Street, Hesperia.
Immediately following, there will be a private celebration of life held for family and close friends at her daughter's home in Hesperia.
Shirley Rue will return home on July 13 to the Spring Grove Cemetery, located at 1300 Lisbon Street in East Liverpool, Ohio.
