Marigen Gonzalez-Russell, age 60, passed away January 2, 2018 after a valiant fight with esophageal cancer. She was born July 15, 1957 in Mexico City, Mexico to Alberto Gonzalez Rodriguez and Josefina Garcia Morales (d. 2016). She lived a full and energetic life. She cultivated joy by helping others, creating community, traveling, dancing, and honoring her Mexican roots. Her warmth and faith had a profound impact on those around her. Her legacy will live on in the blessed memories she leaves us & the values by which she lived. She is survived by: her father Alberto, her siblings: Carmen (Ismael), Maria Elena, Patricia (Sylverio), Armando (Monica), Jorge, Rocio, & Ricardo (Claudia), her beloved partner Ron Arness, daughters: Alison & Amanda, sons-in-law: Jim and Mike, soon to be grandchild, Frijolito, and countless members of her extended family & community. She was preceded in death by: her mother, Josefina, and her brothers, Alberto y Jose Luis. We pray that they welcome her warmly into eternal life, full of God's glory and a love we can never experience here on Earth.
