Edith “Bunny” Gaskins Russ Heath
Born Aug 10th, 1929 in Southport, NC passed July 4th, her favorite holiday.
She was loved and adored by many.
She’s predeceased by her husband Raymond Russ, USMC Ret and daughter Wendy.
Her father Robert Gaskins was the lighthouse keeper for the Bald Head light in the 30s. In Bunny’s lifetime she was a para-legal, court reporter, clay artist, records manager, worked at Cherry Point MCAS, CINCLANTFLT Norfolk and Sunny Point, NC. But Mama’s favorite job was being the cool mom that most kids around her gravitated to.
She is survived by her son Raymond Russ Jr of San Francisco, Robin Russ of Norfolk, VA and Scottie Russ of Oak Island.
She loved her Grandkids, Caroline Russ, Lily Russ, Tristan Russ and great grandkids Colton Haynes, Annalyn Hess and her special friends Pat Marcee, Jennifer Osborne, Jesse Walker and niece and nephew Debbie, “Hon” & Tommy Brewer.
A memorial will be held at Oak Island, NC in Oct.
Mama loved ancestry. She loved doing the family tree. So in lieu of flowers, get yourself a membership to Ancestry.com. She’d like that.
