Kelly Ann Russell
August 18, 1965 – February 3, 2024
Kelly Ann Russell, 58, of Huntingtown, MD passed away on February 3, 2024. She was born August 18, 1965, in Cheverly, Maryland. Kelly grew up with her sisters and parents in Lanham, Maryland, in a tight-knit community of loving grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and neighbors. She attended Parkdale High School and the University of Maryland where she studied early childhood education. During college, Kelly worked with her sister Penny at Greenwood Nursery School. After college, she worked at Washington Bible College which led her to join the corporate office of Founders Bookstore in Lincoln, Nebraska. Kelly found wonderful faith and friend communities during her time in Lincoln, eventually managing the University of Nebraska bookstore.
Eight years ago, Kelly returned to Maryland where she worked with various local childcare centers, most recently at Another Inspired Day Learning Center in Waldorf, Maryland. Kelly adored all the children in her care and has touched the lives of hundreds of children and their families during her time working and volunteering.
Kelly is survived by her parents, Allen and Rowena Russell of Huntingtown, Maryland, her sisters and brothers-in-law Cindy and Bill Voshell of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland, Patty and Brian Hogan of Huntingtown, Maryland, Penny Russell of Brentwood, Maryland, and her beloved niece and nephew, Claire Olivia Voshell and Raymond Allen Hogan.
