Obituary: Sandra Russell

Sandra K. Russell, loving wife, mother and grandmother, aged 76, passed away on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, in Kingman, Arizona.

Sandra was born to the late Earl Rose and Katherine Rose on Nov. 7, 1939. She was known to friends and family as “Sass”, “Grandma Sass” and Aunt “Sass”.

Sandra was an avid walker and always kept very fit. She belonged to several walking groups and participated in numerous organized walks throughout the United States until Alzheimer’s disease and complications as a result caused much dysfunction and lack of mobility.

After retiring as the secretary and assistant to the principal at Los Gatos High School in California, she and her husband Robert Russell moved to Washington state for many years and then to Kingman, Arizona.

Sandra is survived by her husband of 29 years, Robert Russell; sister Joanne Mooney-Einhacker, daughter Cindie (Mike) Ohare and her grandson, Robert Ohare.

The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for Sandra during her stay at the Gardens at Kingman Assisted Living.

Arrangements were placed under the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home and Crematory.
