Mary “Christina” Hampton, 55, of Mocksville, NC was called home unexpectedly on March 4, 2023.

Christina, as she was so lovingly known as, was born on Dec. 17, 1967 in Yadkin County, daughter of the late James Larry Hampton and Mary Lou (Revels) Hampton.

In life, Christina attended Davie County schools. She chose a career in the poultry industry where she worked with Tyson Foods and Crestwood for a number of years before a decline in health. In her free time, Christina loved to simply sit outside and enjoy a cigarette: spend time with her daughter, granddaughter, niece, and other family members. She also loved to talk on the phone, and if you saw her, that is most likely what she was doing at all times. She enjoyed and spent most of her time taking care of her mother, before her passing in 2020. Christina was one of a kind and she loved everyone she knew, even if she had her own way of showing it. She never met a stranger and would make friends with anyone. Christina stayed true to who she was and never changed who she was for anyone, because as she would say “get with it, or get lost.”

Christina leaves to cherish her precious memories: her daughter, Jaleesa West of Winston-Salem; a granddaughter, Jordyn Shabazz; 2 sisters, Marilyn Hampton and Annette Tillery, both of Mocksville; a niece (who was more like a daughter) Lakisha Hampton of Mocksville; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. The family would like to extend a special thank you to her nephew, Kabrion Hauser.

A funeral service for Christina was held on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville.  Pastor Casey Walker officiated. Christina was laid to rest in Chinquapin Cemetery. Flowers will be accepted, but in lieu of flowers donations may be made to Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville by calling or walking in.

We, the Staff at Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville, are honored to serve the family.
