Obituary for ELLA LOUISE RUSSELL

Ella Louise Brooks Russell was born on September 9, 1927 to the late Robert Brooks and Lillian Offer Brooks. Louise was raised in a large, loving family with 13 siblings; she was the fourth oldest child.

Louise was educated in the public schools of Calvert County, MD. She was taught to drive the school bus by Alonzo Mackall and retired after 27 years, but continued to substitute shortly after.

On August 4, 1945, Louise was united in marriage with the late Milton A. Russell. From this union seven children were born.

She enjoyed cooking, watching boxing, Judge Judy, Steve Harvey and The Young & The Restless. Louise loved playing cards such as Bid-whist, Pinochle and Spades at the home of her cousin John and Elizabeth Willett with her husband Milton and Family Friend Calvin Gross.

Louise enjoyed gardening. She'd become excited when spring approached because that's when her flowers would bloom. She enjoyed seeing all the pretty colors of the flowers. She had a never ending love for her family, so holidays were very special to her. She knew that the holiday's would be a time for the family to come together for great food, lots of laughs and a house filled with unconditional love.

Louise quietly and peacefully went home with the Lord on the morning of Monday, February 15, 2016. She peacefully transitioned into eternal rest. Louise was preceded in death by: her parents; husband, Milton; son, Robert; brothers, Ridgley, Maryland, Issac, Leonard, Robert Jr., Enoch and Mural and sister, Alice.

Left to cherish her memory and to carry on her legacy are: her 3 daughters, Lillian, Mary( Archie), Jane (Willard); 3 sons, Milton Jr.(Angela), David (Arlene) and James(Patricia); one daughter-in-law, Edwina; 13grandchildren, Wayne, Monroe, Tameka( Paul), Leonard Jr., Heather, Michelle, Melissa, Mary, Douglas, Veronica, Starlette, Sherrese and Terrell; 14 great-grandchildren, Jalyn, Mykal, Trinity, Jazmyne, Kai, Jalen, Macy, Noel, Brenden, Trajan, Danasia, Douglas Jr., Caiden and Kalli; two Sisters, Irene Williams and Marine Thomas (Stanley-deceased), two brothers, John and Arthur(Ernestine)Brooks; two sisters-in-law, Doris and Delores Brooks and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
