Russell, Marilyn Barbara  
Marilyn Barbara Russell 1932-2015 Marilyn Barbara Russell, 82, a fifty-four year resident of Rancho Palos Verdes passed away peacefully at her home on Mother's Day, May 10th, after a short battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her husband of 56 years, Howard Russell in 2009. She is survived by her daughter, Sheri Hodgson and her family of Redding and her son Jerry and his family of Newport Beach. Marilyn was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, auntie, businesswoman, philanthropist, world traveler, cook extraordinaire, legendary hostess and beloved friend to many. Marilyn was born in Los Angeles and spent her early childhood years in Venice, California. Following his work as a union electrician, her father moved the family to San Bernardino, where Marilyn came of age and made several deep friendships which lasted throughout her lifetime. She subsequently attended San Bernardino Valley College where she earned an AA degree and was courted by her future husband, Howard. Shortly after graduation and marriage, Howard was called on to serve his country and the young family was posted to Monterey, California and subsequently to Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indiana, where their daughter was born. After mustering out of the service, the young family returned to Los Angeles, where Howard entered UCLA to pursue an MBA. The family lived on campus at married student housing, where Marilyn maintained a home for her growing family after the birth of their son. Howard's professional career brought the family to Palos Verdes in 1961 and they bought their view home, the venue for many memorable parties the following year. Marilyn began her community involvement with the Junior Women's Club, in which she was a very active member for many years. In addition to maintaining a beautiful home and raising two young children, Marilyn found time for a part time secretarial job at Trans World Airlines. This job provided the family with the opportunity for world travel, which was enthusiastically embraced. Howard and Marilyn went into business for themselves in 1978, and until their retirement in 1995, successfully grew and managed their business, Lomita Blueprint/Cad West. Retirement brought the opportunity for travel, and Marilyn and Howard had the privilege of seeing much of the world as well as the United States. Throughout her life in Palos Verdes, she was constantly involved in community service from her early days in the JWC to her later work with The Circle of the Palos Verdes Art Center and the Norris Theater. She was also committed to maintaining friendships through the more intimate social groups she was involved in such as her Birthday Club, Gourmet Group, Jaguar Owners Club and investment group, and her precious junior high school friends. She will be missed by all who knew her. A private family memorial is planned. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Palos Verdes Art Center or a charity of choice is suggested. Please sign the guestbook at .
