OBITUARY: Mildred "Millie" Russ

02/12/1946 – 01/12/2012

Mildred “Millie” Russ passed away peacefully January 12, 2012, in Carson City, Nevada. She was born on the 12th of February 1946, in Loma Linda CA, to Horace “Red” and Velma Miller. After growing up in Yucaipa California she moved to Incline Village Nevada in 1968 and then to South Lake Tahoe in 1971. She worked for many years in South Lake Tahoe and made many friends with that smile of hers.

Millie is survived by her loving husband and soul mate James Russ, her three children, Richard Kindred (Helen), Brenda Kindred-Kipling (Scott), and Chelsea Doolittle, and Grandchildren Conner, Anika, Dagen, Dalanie, Step son James Russ II and Step grandson James Mac Russ III.

Millie loved oil painting, gardening, sewing and crafting.

A special “Thank you” to all the staff at Carson Tahoe Continuing Care Hospital for their loving care of Millie.

There will be a celebration of her life this late spring where her ashes will be spread among her flowers that she loved so much.
