Russell Jurmu

Russell Matteus Jurmu, 90, of Millersville, passed away on December 13, 2022. He was born in Wakefield, Michigan to the late Oskari John and Evi Armeda Jurmu. He attended Anne Arundel Community College and went on to receive his Master’s degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus. He worked for Westinghouse, retiring after 42 years of service. Russell was a dedicated and longtime member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Glen Burnie. He enjoyed reading, spending time with his family, pheasant hunting, traveling, and was an avid fan of the Orioles and former Baltimore Colts. He loved having family gatherings, “Finnish picnics”; that brought him the most joy.

Russell is survived by his devoted wife of 71 years, Audrey; loving daughters, Diane Jurmu Critzman and her husband, Bill, Kathy Jurmu Dallman and her husband, Rev.
