She was also preceded in death by her spouse, Edward “Bunky” Anderton; her brothers, Solomon Jackson, Jr., Willie James Russell and Bobby Williams.

Left to cherish her memories are her siblings, Florence Scott, Sarah Johnson, and Pearl Wheeler, all of Columbia SC; Robert Earl Russell of California; her children, Diane McClora of Columbia, SC; Rhonda (Theodore) Terry of Greensboro, NC, Ronald Gordon of High Point, NC, Cynthia Warren of Jamestown, NC; Michael (Mary) Gordon of Powder Springs, GA; Brian Gordon of Fort Lauderdale, FL; sixteen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren.


Funeral service will be held Friday, March 2, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Greater First United Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Guil-Rand Memorial Park. The family will receive friends at the church from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m.


Final arrangements are entrusted to Phillips Funeral Service, Inc.

    The passing of your love one Christina is a very painful experience and I want to express my deepest sympathies to your family. The pain you’re experiencing does not go unnoticed by our Heavenly Father, Jehovah. He is hurt whenever one of his children dies. His original purpose was not for us to die but to live forever. Nevertheless, he provided his son Jesus who gave his life that when we died would have the hope in a resurrection. Acts 24:15 states “there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at that time he will remember every detail about Christina and bring her back. Therefore, draw close to the God of all comfort, Jehovah because he will comfort and stregthen your family during this most difficult time. (go to for more info)

    Words cannot express how I feel. Christina was my heart and I loved her dearly. My life will feel empty without her but she has fulfilled her purpose on earth. I'm so blessed that she welcome me and my family into her family. Rhonda, Ronnie, Michael, Cynthia, Brian, and Diane know that I will always be here for you. Love you Roberta
