Mrs. Campbell entered into her Heavenly home on Sunday, June 14, 2020, at her residence in Eva, AL. She was born January 24, 1935, in Pike County, AL to T. W. and R. Dealier Renfroe. She was an assembly worker for Swift Mills in Columbus, GA before moving to Morgan County. Once here, Mrs. Campbell drove a school bus for Morgan County Schools at Eva for 24 years and loved every child and every minute of that job. She decided to retire to travel and enjoy life, which she did with her whole being. Mrs. Campbell loved her church, her friends, going to the Eva Senior Center, playing tri-dominoes and Bingo, and going to the Wagon Wheel Restaurant every morning for a grilled cheese sandwich. Later in life, she developed a love for NASCAR, Alabama/Auburn football, as well as all other sports, and just having a good time. Her smile would light up a room (She was called Sunshine for a reason.), and she always made you feel better after having spent any time with her. She looked for the positive in everyone and everything, and her final days were filled with her wanting to be sure everyone got to eat if they came to visit. There was always food at “Nana’s house.”
Preceding her in death were her two husbands: William “Powder” Fowler and Eugene Campbell; her parents; T. W. & R. Dealier Renfroe; three brothers: Willie, Kenneth, and Joe Renfroe; one sister: Peggy Smith; and one son: David Fowler, who passed away last year on the same day.
Survivors include one son: DeWayne (Diona) Fowler; one daughter: Jackie (Tim) Kinney; one step-son: Bruce Campbell (Susie); three sisters: Bonnie Jean Flynn (twin), Nell Sanders, & Marilyn Poe; nine grandchildren & three great-grandchildren; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Pallbearers will be Blake Kinney, Wayne Hudson, Bruce Campbell, Blake Campbell, Jeremy Oden, and Derrick Couch.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the church she loves: Eva United Methodist, P. O. Box 5, Eva, AL 35621.
