Remembering Doug Campbell
Douglas Lee Campbell
MARCH 1, 1936 – AUGUST 20, 2019
Notice came today that Doug and Nola Campbell have died within a week of each other. Doug passed away on August 20th and Nola on August 26th. This information was passed along to me by Fritzi Connolly. Doug’s daughter texted some detail to Fritzi.
I don’t believe there is a formal obituary, at least at this time. Condolences to the family may be posted at https://dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/conroe-tx/douglas-campbell-8836413
Quoting from the daughter’s text message that Fritzi passed to me:
“With a broken heart💔, I need to share that on 8/20, my Daddy went to Heaven suddenly while visiting my sweet Momma in the hospital. She was the patient, he was the guest. My dear beloved Momma gained her angel wings today, 8/26, and joined Daddy in Heaven. This has been the saddest week in my whole life. My Parents celebrated 64 years of marriage on 8/13. They lived a committed, loving marriage with many more happy times than hard or sad times. They walked with each other in faith with so much grace. I can’t imagine days without my Parents. God knew if he needed one they were a package deal. He took Daddy instantly and had him waiting for the love of his life at the pearly gates so they could enter their eternity together, as Forever Loves.”
I had a good phone chat with Fritzi this morning. Fritzi said that Nola had been in ill health for the past several years. We both agreed that passing as quickly as Doug did is better than a long and lingering death. For those who do not remember, Doug was one of the cheerleaders
On a brighter side, Fritzi and Byrne are getting along well. Fritzi still manages 400 acres and 100 cows, so he has plenty to keep him busy and occupied. Other travel plans will keep them away from the lunch on September 26th.
Happier news next time, I do hope!
