Marlene Judith Russau
Marlene Judith Russau passed away peacefully, with her children by her side on Tuesday November 7, 2017. Her children were there and holding her handsthe second she went into the arms of Jesus, whom she loved with all her heart.
As a family, we are comforted to know she found our dad, her husband of 54 years, Robert Russau waiting there with arms wide open. Mom is survived by her children Becky (Paul), Kristi (Phil), Terri (Carl), Dan (Mandy), Robyn (Matt) Lisa (Bob); 17 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren.
Mom had the gift of hospitality and care. From as far back as we can remember she was the volunteer, the food preparer, the cookie/pie baker and everyone loved her goodies. She cared for so many, bringing them food and love and Jesus's words.
Mom, we will miss you dearly here on this earth but are thrilled for you in the place you are experiencing right now, and cannot wait to see you again.
A public viewing will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017 from 1-3pm at Bateman Carroll Funeral Home, 520 W Powell Blvd,. Gresham, OR 97030. A private service will be held at her earthly resting place at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery, Portland, Oregon.
