"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you not as the world giveth, give I unto you. For I am now absent from the body but present with the Lord"
Bessie Ashby-Russell, the first of three children, was born May 2, 1943, in DeFuniak Springs, Fla., to the proud parentage of the late Johnnie and Mildred Jones. She was reared in a Christian home and at an early age professed her belief in Jesus Christ. She was saved and baptized under Pastor J.J. Flowers of College Hill Church of God in Christ in Tampa, Fla., where she was a faithful member.
She graduated from Middleton High School at the top of her class and proceeded to Gibbs Junior College to embark upon her journey to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher. Once she obtained her Associates Degree, her dream was deferred only by becoming the loving and devoted wife of John Russell, Sr. and the affectionate mother of four children. She has always put the interests of her family first and made sure that her children were given the best she could provide. Having accomplished this too with excellence, she allowed herself to resume her quest. She continued her education at a satellite branch of Nova University in Tampa where she obtained her degree with honors.
Bessie's avid passion for teaching was expressed every day of her life from the classroom to the Sunday school room. Her love for the Lord and her innate ability to teach had a profound affect on all with whom she came in contact. A compassionate, warm and loving person, she was a role model for all people, both young and old. In her walk of life, she never met a stranger. Her warm smile and quick wit would make you feel special and loved. The example she lived day by day will forever be the goal toward which her family strives.
On Friday, April 14, 2000, Bessie Ashby-Russell closed her eyes in this world and opened them in the presence of our Lord. We should not mourn her passing, but should rejoice for we know our departed friend has gone to a home more beautiful than any we have ever known.
Bessie Ashby-Russell was a special gift from God and will be remembered with love by all that knew her.
Funeral services will be conducted Thursday, April 20, 2000, at 4 p.m., from the First Assembly of God Church in Crestview, Fla., with the Rev. Mark English officiating. Burial will follow next week in Tampa. McLaughlin-Aultman Funeral home is in charge of the arrangements.
