Obituary for Mark D. Russell

Mark D. Russell, age 62, of Peoria, Illinois passed away suddenly on Thursday, July 2 2020 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.

Mark was born in Peoria on April 1, 1958 to Richard and Kathleen (Myers) Russell. They preceded him in death. He was also predeceased by two sons, Mark Russell Jr. and Seth Russell and two brothers, Thomas Russell and Richard Russell.

He is survived by two children Luke (Shaina) Russell of Peoria and Bethany (Jamie) Yurek of Frederick, Colorado and two granddaughters Norah and Maren Yurek. He is also survived by four sisters, Georgia Lange of Lombard, IL, Janet (Joseph) Medvesky of Brimfield, IL, Jeanne (Tony) King of Peoria and Barbara (Rex) Primm of Germantown Hills and one brother, William (Janis) Russell of Peoria, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Mark was an award winning realtor for several years and at the time of his death was the owner of Old School Painters. He enjoyed painting (both professionally and artistically), collecting antiques, fishing, Chicago and Illini sports, and he adored his sweet senior cat, Molly.

People will remember Mark best for his quirky sense of humor, charisma, kind-heartedness, and his willingness to help others in need.

Cremation Rites have been accorded. A Graveside service will be held at 1:00 PM on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at Swan Lake Memory Gardens. Pastor Stephen Barch will officiate.

Memorials may be made to Wildlife Prairie Park.
