Addie R. "Ree" Russell
Services for Addie R. "Ree" Russell will be held Friday, December 15, 2017 at Webb Funeral Home Chapel at 11 a.m. with Rev. Mike Russell, Rev. John Vaughn, and Rev. Don Gentry officiating. Visitation will be Friday from 10 - 11a.m. Interment will be in Arkadelphia Baptist Church cemetery. Mrs. Russell died on December 12th at Anderson Hospital. She was a homemaker most of her life but worked as a secretary for North Lauderdale Water Association in earlier years. She was a long time member of Arkadelphia Baptist Church. She was quick to tell you what she thought, even if you didn't ask her. But she did it out of a sense of wanting to help rather than hurt. She had a quick wit that her sons and some of her grandchildren feel blessed to have inherited. Survivors include her sons, Mike Russell (Becky) of Meridian and Neal Russell (Christie) of Marietta, GA; Grandchildren, Stacy Russell, Tina Martin (Donald), April Pritchett (Shawn), Lauren Russell (Jay Carter), and Eli Harrison (Jenny); Great Grandchildren, Seth Russell, Jase Russell, Sarah Martin, Ethan Martin, Logan Pritchett, Laura Pritchett, and Kevin Carter; One Sister, Bobbie Parker of Meridian; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, W.S. "Bill" Russell Sr.; her son, W.S. "Bo" Russell Jr.; her parents, Will and Annie Jane Neal; and several brothers and sisters. The family requests that memorials be made to Arkadelphia Baptist Church. Family and friends may sign the online memorial, leave a personal note, or order flowers at jamesfwebb.com
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our loved ones. The God of all comfort is close to the brokenhearted and He has great compassion for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one (Psalms 34:18). May you find comfort in His grand promise to bring an end to tears and death (Isaiah 25:8). It is my hope that these thoughts Will help to ease your sorrow in the days ahead as you cherish your most treasured memories.

Granny Ree has always been the best great grandmother, and she adored my boys so much. I have never met someone so full of life and devotion. She will be missed.
