May 5, 1929 - June 8, 2019 Doris Harrison Russell, a child of God, recently took the trip of her life, safely arriving for an everlasting celebration with her Father. Her arrival was on June 8, 2019, just one month following her 90th birthday party. Doris was born at Baptist Hospital when, as she would say, "it was just a little place." Her parents, Buckner ("Pa") and Mildred ("Momie") Harrison, as well as her two siblings, Frances Harrison Malcolm and Buck Harrison, previously took the trip of their life. Doris lived in Forsyth County, and mostly in Winston-Salem, her entire life. She is a graduate of Women's College (now UNC-G), after which she was proudly married for many years to the late Robert (Bob) Russell, an engineering graduate of State College (now NCSU). Doris and Bob had two children, Eleanor Russell Bell and Randy Russell. In addition to being survived by Eleanor and husband, George, and Randy and wife Carol, she has four grandchildren Caroline Russell, Rob Russell, Ben Newton and Brooks Bell-Adamski, as well as six great grandchildren. There is little doubt that each person Doris ever met continues to "have a piece of Doris" within themselves, as she has spent the past 50-years transforming the lives of others with her gentle touch, soft smile, and penetrating words of faith and love. One of her greatest joys in her younger years was playing golf and tennis, but in her later years it was her tape/music ministry at Reynolda Presbyterian Church, followed by her sharing the Word of God at Awake Church. A service to celebrate Doris' life will be held at Awake Church, located at 7840 North Point Blvd., Winston-Salem, NC 27106, (next to the Post Office) on Friday, June 14th at 1:00pm. We offer gratitude to each member of Doris' care team in these recent months. In lieu of flowers, the family request that memorials be made to Awake Church and/or Trellis Supportive Care, 101 Hospice Lane, Winston-Salem, NC 27103. Online condolences may be sent to Salem Funeral Home 2951 Reynolda Road, Winston-Salem, NC 27106
