Minnie Pearl Micu Russell

November 30, 1975 ~ November 6, 2022 (age 46)

Tribute

Minnie Pearl Micu Russell passed away unexpectedly on November 6, 2022, as the result of a stroke. She will be cherished in memory by her husband Mark, their twin children Lucia and Quinn, her mother Minerva Micu and siblings Dinah Rodillas and Bryan Micu, as well as a large community of extended family, friends, and colleagues. The youngest of three children born to Perlito and Minerva Micu, Minnie grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, graduated high school from Stanton College Preparatory School, receiving her B.A. from Florida State University, and an M.A. in Art History and Archeology from the University of Maryland.

Minnie was a loving wife and mother who enjoyed outdoor adventures, knitting, baking, reading, traveling, and cuddles with her children. She was also a museum professional who spent 17 years working at the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and recently began a new job as project manager at the U.S. Botanic Garden. Minnie touched so many with her kindness, empathy, and friendship, and in death saved lives by being an organ donor.

There will be a celebration of life at 12 p.m. on Saturday, November 19th, at Everly-Wheatley Funeral Home in Alexandria, VA, and a service at Mary, Queen of Heaven Catholic Church in Jacksonville, FL on December 17, 2022.
