Support for Carole Russells Family

On June 22nd, 2020 we endured the greatest loss of our life. Our mother Carole Russell very unexpectedly passed away in her sleep.

In 2004 we also lost our father unexpectedly to a heart attack. Our mom was left with the task of raising three children by herself and she rose to the challenge. Over the years our mom became our friend, we shared our fears and hopes with each other, our dreams and our challenges. She showed true, unconditional, unrepentant love for each of her children and wanted nothing more than to be able to spoil her grandchildren for as long as possible. We cannot find the words to state the enormity of this loss to us.    

For those who knew Carole also knew her as mom. She was incredibly caring and loving and treated everyone as one of her own. She was a mom to those who needed one, people and animals alike. Not only was she an incredible mom but she also shined as a Nanny to her first grandson Shawn and was incredibly excited for the birth of her second grandson James who was born on June 27th 2020 at 2:50pm. The death of our mom is still a shock to us as I am sure it is to all of you. We understand that many of us are going through financial difficulties at this time but every little bit helps. 

This GoFundMe has been set up to support our family (her husband Eric and 3 children Katey, Mary and Stephen) during this difficult time to cover expenses and throw Carole the Celebration of Life she deserves. Unfortunately, Carole did not have Life or Mortgage insurance and we are experiencing a difficult financial time. We are extremely grateful for all assistance offered from friends and family.
