Life Story

Maureen “Moe” (Zadrzynski) Russell, 49, of Goshen, In., passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 11 after a hard fought 3 year battle with cancer, and now has a seat at the table of her Lord, Jesus Christ. Moe was born on February 12, 1970 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She married her true love Chad W. Russell on May 13, 1995 in Caseville, Michigan. Chad survives, as well as her son Quinn Russell; sister, Lisa Zadrzynski and fiancé Kenny Craig, brother Mike Przystup and fiancée Tammy Wallace; sister-in-law Connie Zadrzynski; and her special caregivers Chad’s family, mother-in-law, Dede Russell, two brothers and sister-in-laws, Wes (Melinda) Russell, Chris (April) Russell and also several loving nieces and nephews.

Moe was preceded in death by her parents Conrad and Patricia (Nusca) Przystup, a brother, Darrin Zadrzynski and a nephew, Frank Konke, Jr.

Moe worked as a travel agent for Menno Travel in Goshen for 21 years. She truly loved her job and made many friends and acquaintances. She was able to travel the world, to see and experience many cultures and people from all walks of life.
