Gracious and kind-hearted E. Louise Russell, 94 of Frostburg, MD, (formerly of Middleburg, WV) was taken by God's Angels to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, November 30, 2023 at Sterling Care Nursing Home where she was surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Martinsburg, West Virginia on 7/09/1929, she was the daughter of the late Roger and Mary Brady. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Leroy Gregory of 20 years and, her second husband, Grover Russell of 30 years; her precious grandson, Jason Blaise Gamber; two sisters, Elaine Brady and Ethel Lemaster; and a brother, Jim Brady.
She is survived by her daughter and caregiver, Tammy Porter and husband, Kenny of Frostburg, MD; two great grandchildren, Jason, Jr. and Jules; three step great grandchildren, Susie, Patty and Barbie, along with Ebon, a grand son-in-law of Fairfax, VA, who were like her own children and loved dearly. Also, left to grieve her, but also cherish her memory are her siblings, Carlton, Bob and his wife Louise, Barbara Henderson (Ronnie), Mae Staubs, WV; along with several grand nieces and nephews.
Louise enjoyed spending time with her family. Also, she loved the outdoors in her flower gardens and relaxing time in the sun while sitting on her front porch reading her Bible and especially enjoyed listening and watching country music videos. Louise was a gifted seamstress and transformed any kind of fabric into clothing, furniture covers, gowns, etc. She like to bake and cook for her family.
Stephen Grellet, a prominent Quaker missionary, once said:
"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
This is a philosophy that truly defined Louise's character and belief.
She was a faithful member of the Methodist Church, in Middleway, WV before having to make a change in her life and moved to Western MD to live with her daughter and husband. Louise's church was a very important part of her life and she loved the Lord with all her heart.
In accordance with Louise's wishes, she was cremated. There will be no visitation or services.
Condolences and personal reflections to the family may be left after Louise's obituary.
