Memorial Gifts & Donations




Linda Carol (Ragan) Russell was born on June 13th, 1946 and she went home to be with her Lord and Savior from the comfort of her own home surrounded by family on May 21st, 2023.

She was preceded in death by her father Walter Ragan, her mother Edna Ragan, her brothers Curtis Ragan and Jerry Wayne Ragan and her sister Janice Mullen and her husband David Russell Sr.

Linda is survived by her sons David Russell Jr., Tim Russell and Sonny Russell. Her daughter in laws Christy Russell and Shannon Russell and her beloved grand children Weston Russell, Brooke Russell, Raegan Russell, Alyssa Russell, Mylie Russell and her great granddaughter Haven Ray Casteen.

Linda loved family, she loved flowers and her green thumb was obvious by the landscape of her home. The holiday gatherings were a special time for Linda and her family. There was lots of food, laughter, cutting up and horsing around. Oh, if the walls could talk. And her fried chicken? Just ask her boys. There was nothing like mammas cooking. Her grand kids became her most prized possession. She saved every card, calendar and keepsake that they ever gave her, packed away safely in a special box just for them.

Her legacy will be cherished by all that knew her. A little vain? Perhaps. She liked to look nice. As real and true as it gets? Absolutely.

Memorial service will be conducted on Thursday May 25, 2023 at 6:00 pm from Beach Community Church, 5 N 4th St, Carolina Beach, NC 28428, with the family receiving from 5 to 6 pm on Thursday at he church.
