Christina DePhillips

November 28th, 1949 - May 27th, 2024

On May 27, 2024, Christina DePhillips peacefully left the Earth in her sleep at her home in Oro Valley, AZ. She was born in Braddock, PA, on November 28, 1949. Christina was preceded in death by her parents, Florence Elizabeth Murray and Francisco DePhillips, and her late husbands, Frederick Feldt and Pat Earl.

She is survived by her sister, Mary Teresa Giammona, and her five children: Patrick, Tricia, Ryan, Shawn, and Cara. She also leaves behind twelve grandchildren: Michael, Chase, Alec, Sam, Aiden, Ysenia, Ryan, Amelia, Max, Julia, Saga, and the soon-to-be-born Shira, as well as four great-grandchildren.

Christina and her sister lost their parents at a young age, so Christina was raised by her Aunt Anna Mary and Uncle Bobby in Ohio. Christina often credited her nurturing nature to her beloved Aunt Anna Mary.

Throughout her life, Christina exemplified this nurturing spirit. She dedicated herself to her roles as a nurse, and mother, and instilled in her children the values of paying it forward, kindness, generosity, and compassion . Christina was a hardworking nurse who spoke of her profession with the passion of a true caregiver and healer.

Despite facing many challenges since a young age, Christina remained strong, faithful, and optimistic. She will be remembered for that resilience, fortitude, and unwavering determination.

An open-minded individual, Christina respected and had interests in all faiths and religions but found personal comfort in Jesus Christ. She was a dog lover, cherishing her pets, Zorro and Baxter, as family members. Her Italian heritage was a real source of pride for her, and she passed on her love of cooking to her children. Often reminiscing about trips to Little Italy in San Diego and dreaming of visiting her father's birthplace in Italy.

Christina's unconditional love and passionate energy for life will be deeply missed by her family and the community. Her legacy of love, righteousness, and charity will continue through her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, for whom family meant everything to her.
