Noblesville, Indiana – The community mourns the passing of Stacy Russell, a cherished resident and alumna of Hamilton Southeastern High School, who peacefully departed after a courageous battle with illness. The news was conveyed through a heartfelt social media post that encapsulated the relief and sadness felt by those close to Stacy.
The announcement read, “This afternoon I got the news I already secretly knew and never wanted to hear. My heart is broken, and yours is finally free. No more hospital beds, insulin pumps, tests, and all the things you hated. No more transplant lists. Just free, like your spirit always was!”
Stacy Russell’s cause of death was the result of complications arising from her struggle with congestive heart failure. In a poignant social media post in September 2023, Stacy candidly shared her journey, revealing that she had been placed on a heart and kidney transplant list. She faced the challenges with resilience, providing insight into the profound impact her illness had on her life.
Stacy Russell, originally from Fishers, Indiana, and a resident of Noblesville, was not just an alumna but a free spirit who touched the lives of those around her. According to her social media profile, she was a stepdaughter to Jeannie Goins-Russell. Described as one-of-a-kind, Stacy’s spirit lives on in the hearts of those who knew her, despite the void left by her absence.
“There is no one else quite like her. Even though those who loved her will miss her a lot, her spirit lives on in everyone she touched. She will be greatly missed, but even more lovingly remembered. She was always up for a good time and liked spending time with her family and friends. She looked tough, but she was a big softy with a big heart. She cared more about people and their well-being than anyone else. More importantly, she will give you her full attention and all the love and support you never knew you needed.”
Details concerning Stacy Russell’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be shared by the family at a later date, allowing the community to come together to celebrate and remember the life of a remarkable individual who brought joy and love to those fortunate enough to have known her.
