She loved being with them and doing whatever they wanted to do. Sue is survived by her husband of 52 years Joe D. Russell; her son, Scott Russell (Laurie) and daughter, Kelly Reed. Sue is also survived by her grandchildren Cody Russell, Reagan Russell and Austin Reed.

Whenever you were around Sue, you could see the love of her family in her eyes. She was a very special lady and I know she will be dearly missed. Praying for comfort and peace for the family during this difficult time.

Dear Joe, Scott and Kelley,
I just read in the Birmingham News of your loss. I AM so very sorry. I do remember all of you from Green Acres School, spaghetti supper night and sending Scott a book on planes. I think he became a Delta Air Lines pilot. And I can't forget beautiful little Kelley. And of course I remember Joe and Sue Russell and what
beautiful parents they were to their children. I know that she is in a much better place with our Lord and after her well done job that she can rest easily knowing what an outstanding job she did for them.

I am now 77 and sort of "creak along" but do so happily because the next number is 78. My very best to all of you and I'll always remember each of you with much fondness.
