Evelyn Lottie Brown Russell

July 12, 1919 - June 27, 2013

(Continued)

She spent many years living alone with Maggie her dog, but often traveled on bus trips and ocean cruises and return trips to the UK to visit family.

Her last few years found her at University Heights Health and Living in Indianapolis, where she was happily welcomed by the staff and where she passed away, having made so many friends of the caregivers there.

In 2008 the British government and Prime Minister Brown issued a singular medal for the remaining members of the The Women’s Land Army and Women’s Timber Corps. A letter accompanying the medal thanked her for her wartime services “for our country at a time when it depended on you for its survival.”

She remains beloved by her son and grandson, but they know from the World War II ballad that “don’t know where, don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again some sunny day.”

There shall be no calling; however, Nat and Brian would desire that, in memorial to Evelyn, those who have family, friends or acquaintances residing in a long-term care facility, please remember to visit them.
