Obituary for Carolyn Clemmons Russ

Carolyn Clemmons Russ, 70, went to be with her personal savior, Monday, April 10, 2017 surrounded by her family. She believed that to be absent from the body was to be present with the Lord.

Carolyn was a long-time member of Springfield Community Church, where she served her church in several areas including teaching Vacation Bible School and working in the cafeteria. She loved the Lord with all her heart and was particularly devoted to his passion, death and resurrection. Carolyn was known to everyone as a kind-hearted and loving person.

Those left to cherish her memory include her daughters, LeeAnn Grice (Miles), Donna Griffin (Lee), Mary Burrows (Leonard) and Brenda Gardner; grandchildren, Tyler, Kaylee, Linda, John Jr., Caroline, James Jr., Elizabeth, Crystal, Carlton Bruce, Cathy, Michael, Jeff, Steven, Sara, Rachael, April and Leonard; numerous great-grandchildren and great, great-grandchildren; as well as many other loving relatives and dear friends.
