Ironwing and Ava Garrison; six sisters and their husbands, Paula and Frederick Quinn of Dorsey, Virginia LaRussa of Wood River, Betty Willard of Bethalto, Tina LaRussa of Alton, Angelina and Steven Donnelson of Hamburg, Ill., and Joey and Daniel Crowson of O’Fallon, Mo.; and a sister-in-law, Cindy LaRussa of Nebraska.

She was preceded in death by her parent and a brother, Paul J. LaRussa.

Visitation will be Friday, Aug. 6 at Paynic Home for Funerals in Rosewood Heights from 5 p.m. until a memorial service begins at 6 p.m. Larry Crocker will officiate.

Memorials may be given to the Bobbye LaRussa Benefit Fund, in care of United Community Bank in Bunker Hill.
