Mrs. Patsy Campbell

Mrs. Patsy Inise Allmond Campbell, age 94, a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, Kibbee Community, entered heaven peacefully on March 7, 2022, at Community Hospice House, Vidalia, Georgia. She was a member of the 1944 Kibbee High School graduating class and a very proud member and captain of the high school basketball team. After graduation, she attended and graduated from Western Union School in Gainesville, Georgia, and was assigned her first job in Rome, Georgia. Being too far from home, she decided to come back to Montgomery County. Over the years, she worked in Ailey, Georgia, at the Ailey Manufacturing Company then at Oxford Manufacturing, Vidalia Advance, and Walmart in Vidalia, Georgia. After her husband Buddy retired from Piggly Wiggly, they enjoyed much of their time traveling together in their RV seeing the USA and fishing the nearby rivers and the numerous lakes in the southeast. One of her proudest moments was in 1976 while working parttime on the R.J. (Nancy) Reynolds Musgrove Plantation, St. Simons Island, Georgia, she got to meet President-Elect Jimmy Carter, his wife Rosalynn, and daughter Amy. President- Elect Carter was vacationing there prior to being sworn in as President.

Mrs. Campbell really enjoyed the old country, bluegrass, and gospel music and loved to sing. She enjoyed it so much she formed a band and named it “The Family Station” after the old Allmond railway station where she was raised. She played guitar, her daughter Libby played banjo, and son-in-law Lamar played bass. Her granddaughters, Jessica and Jodie, would join in at times singing with their lovely voices. They played at many local churches and other social/local events. One of her favorite songs to sing was “The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn,” and she loved to play Alan Jackson’s song, “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You,” on her CD player. These reminded her of her future home where she would be spending time with her heavenly Father and her loved ones that have gone on before her. Mrs. Campbell was Methodist by faith and a member of Ruth’s Chapel United Methodist Church.

Mrs. Campbell is preceded in death by her husband, William Perry “Buddy” Campbell in 1983; her parents, Charles Roney in 1974 and Lucinda “Cinny” Mary Ann Adams Allmond in 1982; her brother, James Emerson “JE” Allmond in 1926; and her sisters, Muriel (John A. “Buck”) Wilkes in 2015, Lucindy (Milledge) Hightower in 2020, and Hazel (Lonnie) Thigpen in 1994.
