Obituary for Grace Oh Na-Russ

Grace Oh Na-Russ, age 37 of DeKalb County, GA passed away on Friday, September 13, 2019 from complications caused by cancer. Grace was surrounded by her loving family and closest friends.

Grace was born and raised in Atlanta, GA where she graduated from Cross Keys High School and Oglethorpe University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in History. She later earned a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix, Gifted In-field Certification from North Georgia College and University, and a Post-Masters Educational Specialist-Administration and Supervision (Emphasis in Special Education) degree from Regent University. Awards and other recognitions include Aspiring Leaders Academy Cohort (2013 – 2014), Teacher of Year (2011 – 2012), Teacher of the Month (February, August 2010; October 2011), Target Field Trip Grant Recipient (2010), Junior League of DeKalb County Grant Recipient (2009).

A passionate educator for over 13 years, Grace took great pride in the success of her students. Often working extended hours to meet the needs of her students and that of her colleagues. After her diagnosis in 2012, she never allowed the disease to set limitations and continued to serve her students until her untimely passing. Grace lived to serve others. As a follower of Christ, her faith was a major part of her life and the source of her strength. Grace will be remembered as a fierce friend who was so devoted to the people in her life.

Grace was the beloved wife and life-partner of Hamilton G. Russ, Jr for 19 years; a devoted and most loving and caring mother to son Landon David-Soyie Russ; beloved daughter of David James Na and Oh Hee Na; loving and caring big sister to Gloria Grace Na and Samuel In Na and loving aunt to nephew Asher In Na.
