Maureen Russell

RUSSELL Maureen January 5th 2021 Daughter of Ethel and late Fred, eldest sister to Sylvia, Ann, Lynn, Pauline, Jean, Carole, Steve and Kathleen, wife to Jimmy, mum to Steve and Andy, mum-in-law to Wendy and treasured Grandma to Josh. Maureen filled lots more lives with love than can be listed here. She often was a shoulder, a smile or rock for her numerous nieces and nephews and second mum to others. She loved us all so much and would put effort in to help anyone, unconditionally, in need. As a mum, she really was the best. Always there to chat to, offer support and love. Mum liked getting involved in the community. In 1977 she organised the Dringhouses Silver Jubilee 'street party' in the local children's park. It brought the community together with stalls, competitions and local entertainment. Later in life she was involved with Epilepsy, Aspergers and Autism groups in York, having realised, through her youngest son, that support was lacking for adults afflicted by these. Mum helped kick-start various support groups in York and often spoke passionately at St John University and York Carers on these subjects. She was a genuine angel among us and will be in our hearts forever. Love Always, Jimmy, Steve, Andy, Wendy and Joshua xxxxx Any enquiries please to J G Fielder and Son 01904 654460.
