Mrs. Lola Russ was highly adored and cherished by the Love of her life and husband of 62 years, Mr. Thadus Russ, Sr. (deceased) and her ten children:  Ronald Jean Clark (deceased), Thadus Anthony Russ, Jr. (deceased), Frederick Bernard Russ (Tressie), Ricky McKenzie Russ (deceased), Stephanie Rena Turner (Eugene), Dorothy Michelle Aiken (Brian), Martin Luther Russ (Rosetta), Denna Evyette Day (Marion), Danna Suzette Pittman (Michael) and Holly Meredith Russ.  Her siblings: Annie P.
