Obituary for VIOLA BLANCHE KENT

Viola Blanche Russell was born on January 9, 1926 in Prince Frederick, Maryland to the late William Russell and Helen Stewart Russell. She departed this life on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at her family home in Huntingtown, Maryland.

Viola received her education in Calvert County Public Schools. She was a lifelong member of Mt. Olive United Methodist Church. During her Christian walk at Mt. Olive she served in several positions over the years, but the one she loved most was communion steward. She was determined to serve each first Sunday until she was unable to attend service.

In November of 1953 she was united in holy matrimony to Gayhart Kent, which led to 60 years of marriage. Their combined families consisted of six children.

Viola worked for many years in domestic service until she began working at Huntingtown Elementary School where she worked until she retired on June 30, 1988. After her retirement she devoted herself to her family and church which both gave her great joy.

She was preceded in death by her parents William Russell and Helen Russell Gross, sisters; Charlotte Gray, Alberta McGruder, brothers; William, Jr., Joseph, Bernard, Milton, Herbert and Richard Russell.

She leaves to cherish her memory her devoted husband; Gayhart Kent, daughter; Gayle Reid (Vaughn), step daughter and friend; Myrtle Harvey, sons; Clifton Russell (Denise), Howard Kent (Cheryl), Michael Kent and Gary Kent, grandchildren; Greg (Kesa), Vaughn, Jr. (Laichelle), Jeanine (Randy), Shadawn (Sean), Kendall and Camden, great¬grandchildren; Dashawn, Kaniece, Marsalis, Trinity, Davaughn, Jayden, Lanez, Sydney and Cheyenne, sisters-in-law; Louise Russell, Marian Russell, Bertha Jones (Clyde). She also leaves Myrtle's children and grandchildren who loved her dearly as well as a host of nieces, nephews, relative and friends.

Viola was a quiet and gentle woman who always greeted you with a smile. She softly touched the lives of many as she traveled her Christian journey. We thank God for blessing us by making her a part of our lives.
