We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Joynes Funeral Home, Inc.
Teresa Ann Christian, 59, went to be with the Lord on August 21, 2021, at the University of Virginia Medical Center. She is survived by her husband of 35 years Barry Wilson Christian, Sr. She leaves to cherish her children Barry Wilson Christian Jeffries, Jr. (Beth) and Monte Curtis Christian (Megan); seven grandchildren: Marcus, Malcolm, Matthias, Shawne, Kyndal, Bailee Brown and Hailey Schlechta.
Teresa worked as a Federal Government Contractor for over 30 years and advanced her career assisting many agencies. She was a member of the Bethel Baptist Church of Amissville, Virginia, where she served in many capacities but loved singing in the choir. She attended and graduated from Culpeper County Schools, Lord Fairfax Community College, and Rappahannock County Adult Education programs specializing in Computer Science.
Teresa was faithful, always supportive, always kind, and always willing to help. Teresa was known for her passion and love for the Lord and for her family. She was a woman who lived, setting the example of integrity and Christlikeness for all to follow. She loved her husband, children, and daughters-in-law. She especially enjoyed any activity in which her grandkids were involved, to whom she was known as “mee-maw.” To be Teresa’s friend was to know she thought you were wonderful and worthy. She had the courage to try, courage to live, and courage to love.
Teresa leaves behind her sisters: Michelle Pollard, Deborah Morton (Buck), Carol Simpson (Gregory), Karen Ellerbe (Austin), brothers Glenn Pollard, Darnell Pollard, Dana Williams, and her father, Leon Williams (Carolyn). She was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy A. Pollard.
Thanks to her special coworkers: Brenda Malvin, Cathy Washington, and Yvonne Chichester, who made the workplace a family. Additional thanks to longtime friends Terry and Wayne Hitt.
Graveside Service will be at the Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery, Amissville, Virginia, on August 31, 2021, at 12:00 noon. The Reverend Ronald Poe will officiate and Reverend Henry Hall will deliver the eulogy.
