Obituary

Melissa Russell, 90, of St. Petersburg, passed away on August 23, 2018. She is survived by her loving family Floyd, JC, Carol, and Rachael.

The Russells married 65 years ago at the First Methodist Church in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys where they resided before moving to St. Petersburg.

In January of 1965, Melissa became a Born Again Christian. This life changing decision served as a guide and template for the rest of her life. Melissa and Floyd opened up their home so that Island Community Church could start what has become 50 years of Christian impact in the Florida Keys.

The family would like to thank the health care professionals at St. Anthony's Hospital, Bon Secours Place and Bon Secours Maria Manor for their compassionate care. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations to Samaratin's Purse, P.O. Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607.
