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
One daughter, Dianna Lynn Campbell, preceded her in death.
her in death were two brothers, Hester and Bethel,
and one sister,
Tyrone, Pam, Brenda, Marene, Zona, Bonnie, and Janice are left
to miss and mourn
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
We brought Mom back to Letcher Manor Nursing Home where
she stayed from
the end of July through the end of September. On
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
our family believes wholeheartedly, that on January
the 7th at 3:05
p.m. Heaven opened up its gates to welcome our
Mom was 61 years, 9 months and 25 days old at the time of her
now I’ll bet you’re wondering
HERE TO RETURN TO OBITUARIES
what I’m weeping for
now I’ll bet you’re smiling
loved ones meet you at the door
had a friend in Jesus
put your faith in the Lord
resting safely with Him
you’ll rest forever more
close my eyes in thoughts of
each lonely day ends
has a brand new angel.
MY MOTHER, MY BEST
