Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry I just found out about this today. She was a great woman and a wonderful friend to both my parents and I.

So sorry for your loss. When someone you love becomes a memory the memory become a treasure so treasure the memory

Mrs. Russell was my 5th grade teacher at James Bickley (1980-81) and she sure did put up with a lot of my shenanigans! I can still remember being completely enthralled and mesmerized by her stories - I always looked forward to hearing of her adventures!

Heartfelt condolences.
No goodbyes, just good memories.

Mrs. Russell was my fifth grade teacher at James Buckley Elementary School (1982-1983). I remember Mrs. Russell sharing her adventure stories as she loved to travel. Mrs. Russell was one of my inspirations for having a career in education. She will be greatly missed. My condolences to the Russell family.

Mrs. Russell was my 5th grade teacher at James Bickley (1959-1960). She was a very sweet and kind lady and was one of my favorite teachers. I have fond memories of her reading Little House on the Prairie to our class after lunch each day. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
