Sweetie married Cecil Campbell in 1945, and together they shared 54 years until his passing in 1999. She was a devoted Christian, and was a member for over 70 years of the Brookton Pentecostal Church. Sweetie’s life revolved around raising her children which she took such pride in. She loved knitting and crocheting, and gave much of her work to family and friends. In her younger years, she picked potatoes in Mars Hill, and for many years she worked as a CNA in area nursing homes. Sweetie always worked hard, cooking and took pride in keeping her house clean, neat, and organized. She was also determined to do what she set out to do, and was proud to have earned her high school diploma from Lee Academy in 1987 at the age of 60. Sweetie will be remembered as a fun person to be around. She always enjoyed going out to lunch, shopping, and spending time with family.
