Lynn L Russell

1944 - 2021


On Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021, Lynn L. Russell the best big sister anyone could ask for passed peacefully with her family by her side. Lynn was 76 years young and lived a very fulfilling life. Her social calendar was filled with events, book club meetings, and visits with her numerous friends. Lynn graduated from both Wayland High School and Springfield College and never stopped learning. She went on to earn two Master’s. After living in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Maryland she ended up back in the Springfield area and became a Teacher in the Springfield School system before retiring. Lynn is the daughter of Raymond J. Russell and Doris H. Russell (Twombley). Lynn leaves her two sisters, Judith Russell from Cambridge MA, and Amy Russell from Dover NH and a niece Chelsea Mower of Malden MA. She also had three brothers Paul Russell and his wife Ellen from Framingham MA, Steven Russell and his wife Patricia from Bolton, Raymond (Andy) Russell and his companion Jane Foster from Grafton MA, and Dana Russell from Brookline MA. In lieu of Flowers please donate to your favorite charity in Lynn’s name. She gave to many organizations and would be very pleased to know that you did as well. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date, if you are interested in attending please email:

Lynn was a lovely, smart, kind, very active person. She cared about her students and people in her life. The activities she loved to do were so varied, lectures, music, shows, speakers... always looking to engage her mind and have fun.
May her memory always bring blessings and smiles

I'm so sorry to hear of Lynn's loss.  She was a wonderful woman, a very dear friend to all of her colleagues, and a caring teacher who always wanted the very best for everyone.
