Jackie Mae Glore-Campbell
Jackie Mae Glore-Campbell, age 76, of Springfield, MO, passed away Saturday, June 28, 2014 at Mercy Hospital with her sons and best friend by her side. She was born September 5, 1937, in Van Buren, AR, to John and Mildred Gilmore. After living in Huntington Beach, CA, Jackie and her sons moved to Springfield in 1960. Jackie was self-employed as a housekeeper; she loved and took great pride in her work, and her sons, John, Frank, Steve, and Harold Glore. Jackie's sons were the light of her life. She met the love of her life, Ronald Campbell, at Barbara's Beer Garden where they were paired together for a shuffle board tournament. They were united in marriage on October 14, 1977. From her marriage to Ronald, Jackie gained two more sons, Joe Campbell and Gene Campbell, and her only daughter, Robin Campbell. Jackie and Ron spent many loving hours together doing what they loved, such as, fishing, going to the horse races, bowling, and vacationing with their wonderful friends Don and Dorothy Belcher. Jackie also spent many hours sitting on the bleachers cheering her sons to victory during their many years of playing softball. Jackie loved to bowl and bowled in many leagues and made many great friends. Jackie's most treasured friend in life was her god- daughter, Debra Fay. Debra was there for Jackie during her last few months, which made Jackie and her family treasure her even more.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ronald J. Campbell; her parents, John and Mildred Gilmore; daughter Robin Campbell; two sons, John Glore and Harold Glore, and a daughter-in-law, Candy Glore. She is survived by her four sons, Frank Glore of Springfield, Steve Glore of Springfield, Joe Campbell and wife Kathy of Colchester IL, and Gene Campbell and wife Karen of Republic; five grandchildren, Kaleb, Kourtney, and Rylee Campbell, and Robbie and Micheal Phelps; and a host of family and friends.
