Anna Russell

Feb. 26, 1945 — March 12, 2014

Anna “Angie” Russell , 69, passed away Wednesday, March 12, 2014, with her husband and friends at her bedside. She had put up a long and arduous battle of more than 10 years against ovarian cancer.

She was born Feb. 26, 1945, in Philadelphia, Pa., to Julius and Anna DeLeo, who preceded her in death. She had a long and happy life and was the loving wife of 33 years to husband Larry. Her husband was a career soldier in the United States Army and Anna had the daunting task of raising their four children, Jacob, Kevin, Larry Jr. and Shannon, while her husband was deployed on worldwide assignments.

Anna was a woman of many talents and there were no obstacles that she couldn’t overcome, especially concerning her children. As each one had their own individual desires and interests, she always made the time and put forth the effort to satisfy and encourage each child individually, yet maintain a family structure. Affectionately known as “Nana,” her strong values of love, caring and family carried on as she became a loving, caring and devoted grandmother, who is idolized and adored by her grandchildren. She was an excellent role model.

Anna proudly served in the U.S. Army Reserves and had several tours of active duty. During the latter part of her USAR duties, in which she was promoted through the ranks to Senior NCO, her health began to decline and after much consideration, she went into a reserve status and subsequently left the Army. With the improvement of her health, she returned to the federal government and later retired with a total of 28 years of service.

She is survived by her husband, Larry; sons, Jacob, Kevin and wife Tammi and three children, Larry Jr. and Shannon; three sisters; seven brothers; many grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and a host of very close friends and acquaintances.

Her bright star shall shine forever in the hearts of all who knew her. Anna was a very private person and throughout her 33 years of marriage, she often said that she “didn’t want a huge production made of or to celebrate her life and death.”

There will be a visitation 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday March 20, 2014, at the Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St., with burial immediately following.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, www.bryanbraker.com

    For several years Mrs. Russell served as the chief admin at the University of San Francisco’s Army ROTC program. At the ‘Dons Battalion’ she was invaluable making sure that all her cadets were properly cared for in paperwork and personally. A kind word, a laugh, a hug were constant at USF for the women and men matriculating through the university while working hard towards an Army officer commission. She took pride in her family, in her country, and in her daily duties. God bless her, she will be missed!

    Angie helped me with my commissioning paperwork and was also a great friend as I transitioned from Army life to civilian lift five years later. We ended up living in the same town. She will be greatly missed. I have communicated with several of my USF ROTC colleagues today, and they are all saddened and sending their condolences.

    Anna worked as our legal secretary after her retirement. I had the pleasure of working beside her. She was always positive and even after her health declined again, she was a pleasure to be around. She will be missed! Thoughts and prayers to her family.
