Rosemary Russell

Russell, Rosemary was one of a kind. She said goodbye to this world on January 24th, 2023 after 83 years of making it a better place for those that she loved. Rose was born to Dorothy Lee Stewart and George Edward Stewart on January 8th, 1940. She was a dedicated mother to her son William Stewart (Melissa) Wieske and daughters Debra (Mike) Russell Sutherland and Julie Ann (Brent) Coffey Mullins. Rosemary was a loving sister to her baby brother George (Debbie) Edward Stewart II and a caring Grandmother to her Grandchildren Alex Michael Coffey and Claire Ava Rose Wieske. She was preceded in death by her partner in crime and husband James Oyed Helms. Rose was proud of her profession as a phlebotomist and was damn good at it until she retired at the age of 72. A perfect day for Mom (as many called her whether they were her children or not) would be spent at her home on Seymour Lake surrounded by the friends and family who loved her. We will gather to celebrate the life of this incredible woman at Village Funeral Home 135 South Street, Ortonville, MI on Saturday, February 11th, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. Family will receive friends from 12:00 noon until the time of the service.
