On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, our devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, wife, sister, aunt, friend, Mrs. Christine Bonner White departed this life at her residence. Christine was born January 9, 1937, and was the only daughter of the late Ben and Alma Bonner of Dinwiddie County. Christine was preceded in death by the love of her life, Deacon Melvin N. White. They celebrated 50 years of marriage during an anniversary celebration in January 2003. Also preceding her in death were her brother, Norman Bonner Sr.; grandson, Kevin Lewis; two nephews, Norman Bonner, Jr. and Glenn Bonner and niece, LaTasha Bonner. Christine was a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church and loved her church family. A quiet and doting mother, she loved her family with the greatest intensity, adored them with her love, and would do anything for everybody.

She leaves to cherish her love and memories four daughters, Linda Grant (John), Theresa Manns, Barbara Lewis (Kenneth) and Stephanie Blackwell (Paul); grandchildren, John Grant Jr. (Unishea), Latisha Flowers (Derrick), Nikita and Kristi Kelso, Kenneth Lewis Jr. and Christine Slaughter; a special godgranddaughter, Jaylen Sloan; great-grandchildren, Jayla Grant, John Grant III, Derrick Flowers and Delaney Flowers; two brothers, Ben J.
