Betty Campbell Obituary
Betty Esther Campbell

Having done all she could to make this world a better place, Betty Esther Campbell, born Betty Egle, San Antonio Texas, 19 November, 1927, decided the angels could make better use of her services on 3 Sep 2011. For nearly 84 years, this remarkable and accomplished woman touched and cared for hundreds, across America. During her last two years she resided at Rosemont Memory Care Facility in Kingwood Texas, near her son and daughter-In-Law James and Kathy Campbell. Her parents were Oscar and Esther Egle. She had two sisters, Barbara Anne and Patricia, and one brother, John. Betty's dearest childhood friends were her cousins Jeanie and Evelyn Egle. While working at Lackland AFB, she met and married Ted Campbell. Betty and Ted had three children, Ted Jr., Barbara, and James. The Air Force took the Campbell's to Alaska, Washington DC, Washington State, and several homes in between. After the Air Force, they moved first to Riverside, Connecticut and then to Midwest City, Oklahoma, where both Betty and Ted worked and then retired. Education, family and work were very important to Betty, throughout her life. She began her College work in Alaska in 1960 and earned her Baccalaureate Degree in 1991, followed by a Graduate Degree from Oklahoma University in 1994, when she was 66 years old. She retired from Tinker Air Force Base in 1997, after over 30 years of service; achieving the rank of GS-12. Feeling the pull of home, Betty moved to San Antonio to care for her Mother, Esther, who lived 101 years. From 1997, until she could no longer do it, Betty provided caring, compassionate, and unconditional love and support for Esther and other family members. Her final years at Rosemont brought her peace, love, safety and security. We, her family, are grateful for the loving, devoted, and conscientious care given to Betty Campbell there. Betty was a spiritual person throughout her life, with a long association with Catholicism. She is survived by her son Ted Campbell and his wife Kit Taylor, her daughter Barbara Chance, her son James Campbell and his wife Kathy, her brother John Egle and his wife Helen, her sister Patricia Anderson and her husband Charles. She had seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews including her special cousin Jeanie Williams. Betty's lasting legacy is her devotion to family. A Memorial will be held 7 pm, Wednesday, September 7, at St. Matthews Church, 10703 Wurzbach Rd., San Antonio, Tx. 78230-2499. There will be a viewing at Bill Eisenhower Funeral Home 5005 SE 29th Street, Del City Oklahoma from 5-9 PM Friday, September 9, with graveside services Saturday morning 10 am, September 10, at Arlington Memory Gardens, 3400 North Midwest Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73141-9699, 405-427-2453.
