Russ Edberg, an honorary member of the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club and one of the club’s longest serving members, died Saturday morning.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend his funeral 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 11, from Wm. J. Rockefeller Funeral Home Inc. 165 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer.
For the benefit of new members who may not have been acquainted with him, Russ was an active SRC member for 45 years until recent years when his health prevented him from participating in Rotary activities. He also was a Paul Harris Fellow.
Russ had moved to the Evergreen Commons retirement facility in East Greenbush in 2013, about four years after Dorothie Ann “Dottie” Edberg, his wife and a longtime Rotary supporter, passed away.
