Linda Russell Culbreth

June 1, 2023, 78, Fayetteville –

Linda Russell Culbreth, 78, peacefully passed away on Thursday, June 1, 2023, at Kitty Askins Hospice Center in Goldsboro. Born in Clayton, Georgia on May 6, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Murray Anderson Russell and Edith Polston Russell Fairfax.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Kenneth Culbreth; and brothers, Ronald Edward Russell and Robert Louis Russell.

Linda is survived by her daughter, Melanie C. Cox, and husband, Stanton of Goldsboro; son, Brent Culbreth and wife, Shantel of Fayetteville; grandchildren, Autumn Culbreth, Hannah Evelyn Cox, Gabriel Culbreth, and Journey Culbreth; great-grandchildren, Summer Wright, and Micah Wright; sister-in-law, Darnell Russell; nephew, Isaiah Russell; niece, Lizzie Russell; and special friend, Nora Williams.

A faithful member of Covenant Love Church in Fayetteville, Linda served her Lord and offered praise by attending worship for as long as she was able. When her struggles overpowered her ability to be physically present at church, she continued to join the congregation by watching the live-streamed services.

Linda spent 20 years serving as the property manager for Floyd Properties. Following retirement, she continued to offer her skills of care and compassion as a caregiver for Home Instead Senior Care and as a private caretaker.

Loving with all of her heart, Linda always put her family first. Her children were special, but there was nothing quite like her grandchildren. For her, they were one of her biggest blessings and she made sure that they knew of her love for them.

A service to celebrate Linda’s life will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, June 5, 2023, at Covenant Love Church in Fayetteville with Pastor John Adderley officiating. Interment will follow at Wayne Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the hour prior to the service at the church.
