Christabell was preceded in death by her husband, Levie Glover; and sisters and brothers, Florrie Bell Johnson, Pearl Rice, Betty Ann Ray, Eartha Carter, Thomas Washington and John Henry Washington.
She leaves to cherish her loving memories her three children, Nathaniel Washington of Denmark, Angelia D. (James) Littles of Jacksonville, Florida, and Michael Glover of Strongsville, Ohio; three stepchildren, Delphine, Charles and Levie Glover Jr. of Far Rockaway, New York; two grandchildren, Michael Mason and Aiden Sebastian Glover of Charlotte, North Carolina; three step-grandchildren of Jacksonville;a special nephew, Tavon Walters of Denmark; sister Mary Williams of Sanford, North Carolina; two brothers, Charles Washington and Nehemiah (Dollie) Washington of Denmark; and treasured relationships with Jessie and Christopher Matheney of Blackville and Felicia Matheney of Columbia; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
