Beverly Russell

Jan 02, 2018

Beverly Russell, 79, of Stockton Springs, died peacefully surrounded by her family on Dec. 30, 2017. She was born March 27, 1938, in Stoneham, Mass. She was raised by her grandmother, Florence Hannaford, along with her cousin, Joanie, who she has always considered her sister.

Beverly is survived by her husband of 58 years, George M. Russell, and her four children: Gilman Russell and girlfriend Jill Cunningham of Searsport, Steven Russell and wife Melody of San Antonio, Texas, Laurie Gray and husband Bruce, and George Russell and wife Rochelle, all of Searsport; 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

In 1971 Beverly and George moved to Maine. You could always find Beverly sitting with her sister-in-law, Margie Russell, over a cup of tea and knitting or crocheting a project. Beverly was blessed to have special friends in her life: Harriet Seekins, Roberta Wren, Janice Shute and Mary Jane Costigan. Beverly has had a life-long talent of knitting, crocheting and sewing. One of her proudest moments was when she raised $800 selling an afghan she made for the Stockton Springs Community Church Steeple Fund.

A celebration of life will be held by the family in the spring.  In lieu of flowers please make donations to WCGH Dialysis Unit, P.O. Box 287, Belfast, ME 04915.

When tomorrow starts without me,

Please try to understand

An angel came and called my name

And took me by the hand.
