Florence Theresa Russell Obituary
FLORENCE THERESA RUSSELL was called home to her Lord Friday, June 24 at Altavita Retirement Community - previously Air Force Village West - after a brief illness. Terry and her late husband, Colonel Hal Russell, moved to Riverside, CA in 1992 and remained active in the AFVW Community until the end. Terry was born June 4, 1923 to James and Catherine Peters of Garden City, NJ. She was a fashion model and television news reporter for a number of years before she met and married Harold Russell in April 1967. They settled into a Virginia home with the three Russell children - John, Janet and Jim - along with her daughter, Kathy Dahly. Terry had strong interests in golf, painting and entertaining - all activities in which she flourished in the days after she and the Russell Family moved to Texas in 1967. Upon leaving their lake place southeast of Dallas, she and Hal moved to Riverside where she continued to golf, paint and entertain in a warm and supportive circle of friends at AFVW. Mrs. Russell was predeceased by her husband Hal and daughter Kathy. She is survived by son John (Gerri) of Saint Augustine, FL; daughter Janet Williams of Montgomery, TX and son Jim (Tracy) of Fredericksburg, VA. She leaves behind nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. Terry's family is especially appreciative of the care and friendship shown her during the 24 years she lived at Altavita. A committal service is scheduled for Thursday, June 30,2016 at Riverside National Cemetery, time will be at 2:01 P.M. Staging area #5. Directors (800) 275-4648 www.arlingtonmortuary.com
