Pythians All -It is with a very heavy heart that I announce the passing of PSR and Grand Trustee Larue Cross last evening, May 2nd. Brother Larue has been a mainstay of Welcome Lodge #37 in Muncie for many years serving in many capacities and many years as Treasurer. He served as Chancellor Commander of the Golden Spur team. He was Sheik Emeritus of Al Hilal Temple #33, DOKK. He was proud of serving as a member of the Indiana Pythian Home Board of Directors for years and continued his service to the Grand Lodge serving as Grand Trustee at his death. Larue did several ritualistic parts in the Pythian Order and did them to perfection. He will absolutely be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His health had been failing , especially since losing his beloved daughter Susie. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Brother Chris Cross, Friend Gloria Jefferson and the entire family. Cards of condolence may be sent to: Chris Cross and Family, 1400 N Truitt Rd, Muncie, IN 47903 and to Gloria Jefferson, 2208 E 19th St, Muncie, In 47302.
