Betty Ann Campbell, 87, embraced her heart and soul with her mother, her father, and her granddaughter on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

Betty was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on September 2, 1930, and spent her childhood at beautiful Otter Lake.

Married to George “Bud” Campbell in 1950, she relocated to Melbourne with her family in January 1954. Employed by Nokia in Melbourne, Betty retired in 1998 to spend more time with her children and grandchildren and to shout and cheer for her Orlando Magic.

Betty is survived by her brother Earl (June) Fryklind of Muncy, PA; her children George (Sue) Campbell, Jeff (Sherri) Campbell, and Carol McAlpin of Melbourne, FL, and Robert (Paul) Campbell of Lexington, KY; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and her best four-legged buddy Leo.

A memorial celebration in honor of Betty’s life will be held Thursday, June 14, 2018, at 1pm at Fountainhead Funeral Home at 7359 Babcock Street SE in Palm Bay.

Betty never missed an opportunity to stop and smell the flowers. In honor of Betty’s love of life’s beauty, her family welcomes flower donations.

I had been thinking about Betty lately and checked Google and found this. When Betty went to Flint School in Flint, Indiana (near Angola), we were best buddies until she moved away. I got in touch in 1998 for a 50th class reunion to which I invited her. She couldn't come, but as she was in the neighborhood, we got together for lunch. One reason she couldn't come was that she would miss her grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. I am sorry for your loss and sorry I didn't have one more communication with her. I am including a picture from my album of Betty, taken at the LaGrange Fair in 1945.

I was so sorry to see the obituary in the paper for Betty. Such a wonderful lady. Although I had not seen her for several years, she was often in my thoughts. I have a rose in my yard that bloomed when Monica Jean passed away and so I named it Monica's Rose and whenever it blooms it reminds me of that wonderful child and her family, especially her grandmother. Both Kim and I send our condolences to the family with love and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers for the family as you go through the days and weeks ahead. I am sad to see that she passed away. Betty and I worked together at Ark Electronics. She was such a dear, sweet lady - taking me under her wing and being a great mentor, friend and co-worker. I used to come over to her house (maybe you can remember me).

I wish I could be at her memorial service, but will not be able to make it. Please know that I will be thinking of you and praying for you. Heaven has gained a dear sweet angel. May God be close to you and comfort you.

In Christ’s love,
Cindy Miller

Mawmaw was one of the sweetest and kindest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Anytime I saw her, she had the biggest smile on her face and she would always check in with the latest things I was doing. But some of my favorite memories are when she would pick Kristin and Tony up from the bus stop, and I'd tag along to hang out with Kristin. We would ride in the car and play DJ with her radio - playing the most absurd stations. She was such a good sport and never seemed to mind too much. She loved so big and will be greatly missed!

I will never forget Betty's big welcoming smile. She always had such great stories to tell that would make us laugh so hard. I have loved going over to Carol's, and later Kristin's house, for Christmas and walking in to be greeted by Betty's big smile and loving heart. She was truly one of a kind. Heaven gained a sweet soul, that is for sure!

I have fond memories of Betty as my Sunday school teacher at West Melbourne First Baptist Church when I was Junior High age. I also remember playing kickball with the Cook and Campbell families and Betty was very much a part of our game. I love her and will miss her. My condolences to the family, I love you too.

I have such fond memories of my aunt Betty especially from when I was growing up. She lived next door to us as long as I can remember. It always seemed like her and my mom was a team. She would watch us and my mom would watch my cousins. She would take us places and we were All always together whether it was at church, our house, her house.
I want to express my deepest sympathy to my dear cousins. I love you and am thinking of you in this time of sadness.
Love, Wilma

I have so many wonderful, warm memories of Aunt Betty. We gathered at her home almost nightly to play cards or dominoes. We also had many games of charades. She never complained at playing chauffer to us since our mom did not drive. Aunt Betty was just a really nice person. Although Heaven has gained and angel, she will be missed by family and friends.
