Louise Campbell


      It is with a sad, and broken heart that I try to write
the obituary of my loving mom, Louise Campbell, or
as most people called her, Louie.
      Louie was born on March 13, 1943 to the late
Ray and Cora S. Campbell.  Louie was mom to Dena
(Dean) Couch and Chastity Campbell. She was grandmother to Tara
Couch and Nadean (Jeremy) Hayes, and Granny Lou to Courtney
Hayes.
      One daughter, Dianna Lynn Campbell, preceded her in death.
Also preceding her in death were two brothers, Hester and Bethel,
and one sister, Evelene.
      Tyrone, Pam, Brenda, Marene, Zona, Bonnie, and Janice are left
to miss and mourn her daily.
      Mom had been dealing with health problems for the past 14 years.
On the 27th day of May, 2004, we took mom to Lexington where she
fell into a coma which lasted through June and part of July.
      On July 5th to our delight mom finally woke up. On July 6th, she
wrote a note that simply said, “I want to be baptized as soon as it is
possible.”
      We brought Mom back to Letcher Manor Nursing Home where
she stayed from the end of July through the end of September. On
September 24th, 2004, Danny Dixon, Squire Watts, Claudette Watts
and Freddy Watts went to visit with her, and it was on that day that
our Mom became a member of the Cedar Grove Church.
      Our mom never became well enough to be baptized like she had
asked. However, our family believes wholeheartedly, that on January
the 7th at 3:05 p.m. Heaven opened up its gates to welcome our
mother home.
      Mom was 61 years, 9 months and 25 days old at the time of her
death.

Right now I’ll bet you’re wondering
Just what I’m weeping for
Right now I’ll bet you’re smiling
As loved ones meet you at the door
You’ve had a friend in Jesus
You put your faith in the Lord
You’re resting safely with Him
Where you’ll rest forever more
I’ll close my eyes in thoughts of you
As each lonely day ends
Heaven has a brand new angel.
MY MOTHER, MY BEST FRIEND
