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.

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 5, 2018 from 4:00-8:00 PM (with a prayer service at 7:00 PM) at Leppert Mortuary - Nora Chapel, 740 E. 86th Street, Indianapolis.

Alison and Amanda, Your Mom was such a wonderful lady! I have so many fond memories of her from St. Maria Goretti, living down the street from your family, and all the sleepovers and birthday parties--especially the one we had together for you, Alison and Mallory at the hotel pool. Such fun! She always had a smile on her face, would do anything for anyone, and always made me laugh. I was so sorry I did not hear about her funeral until the following day, and was sad to have missed it. She has been in my daily prayers for quite a while. I just want you both to know you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. She was so proud of you both! Love, Shelley Loftus

I knew Marigen when she was in Manila - she was a member of our book club. I have such wonderful memories of the times with her - especially of the time she hosted our book club with her fantastic Mexican food - the delicious taste of her Mole sauce still lingers after all these years! She was truly one of the most genuine and affectionate people I know. Her warmth, affection and energy will be missed. She always spoke so proudly of her daughters - Warm condolences to the family at this difficult time.

I met Marigen when we were both in college in Erie, Pennsylvania. I have nothing but fond memories of her and your family in Mexico. I spent part of the summer of 1983 with them. I am sooo sorry for your loss.

Your mom is a rock in the Latin community. Marigen's name is known in every circle. She is such a light to the world and a testimony to God's love. I know she can see our every move and she can see us mourning, and she can see us cherish the memories we have of her with each other. We must continue your mother's legacy of wisdom, kindness and generosity. She lived by example. What a beautiful and fulfilled life she lived! She truly did live life to the fullest, even in her most vulnerable moments. I am so thankful to have known your mother. May we continue to celebrate her throughout our lives.

I was so sorry to hear this news. I met Marigen through a ministry at OLMC, and recall the evening where we were the only 2 to show up for a meeting, and we talked for maybe an hour, and I got to know her. We both got our cancer diagnoses at about the same time. Though I didn't see her a lot, when I did she was always so full of hope and faith - she was remarkable that way! Our sadness is buoyed only by knowing that she is with God!

More era una persona que realmente gozaba cada momento al máximo, exigente y de ideas fijas, con un corazón lleno de energía y amor, compartiendo todo lo que tenía, ayudando a gente a crecer y realizarse.
Para mí una gran tía y amiga, me dio consejos, me ayudo a hacer la paz con Dios después de la muerte de mi padre, me enseñó a rezar un rosario y hoy con el corazón roto le pido a Dios por mis primas, para que con su ayuda, salgan adelante de momentos débiles. Las quiero muchísimo y con todo mi cariño ayudo a cargar su dolor. Ustedes saben cuanto la quiero. Gracias por tanto mi More Adorada
