I was one of her nursing students, she was a great teacher. I remember her every time I have to say heparin, as I never could say it correctly in school and it tore her up that I couldn't. She used to tell me "you tare up the good kings English ". She had me to practice saying it at every red light stop. I say it correctly now, she was a great instructor, I was blessed for having her in my life and my thoughts and prayers are with you all now.

Mrs. June Campbell was my senior nursing instructor at Greenville Tech. I graduated in 1981. I spent 32 years in Psychiatric and Pediatric nursing. There wasn't a week that went by that I didn't think of something that Mrs. Campbell taught me. She was that good as an instructor! In the first week of my senior nursing rotation, I was the first student who had a patient that died. Mrs. Campbell gathered all of the other students around the bed, and we said a prayer for my sweet patient and his family. THAT was the most important thing that I learned from her! During those 32 years. there were hundreds of patients that I prayed with at their bedsides. Some were getting ready to go to surgery, or some had been told that they didn't have long to live. I wanted them to know that I tried to take care of more than their physical needs,,, I wanted to take care of their spiritual needs as well.
Mrs. Campbell will be missed by so many people. But she also touched so many people! I will never forget the love and consideration she showed to our patients and to her students. We could talk to her about anything. Her love will continue to shine through in all of the nurses she taught.
I pray that God will bless her family in this hour of need. Remember her smiles and the beautiful memories that she leaves behind.
Love to all, Sherry Tompkins Booth

Ms. she was always called in church, was such a wonderful lady that led our children in Sunday School for many years teaching generations of children. I personally am so grateful that my children had her as so are many children of Grace. She was such an inspiration to many children at Grace. As the former children’s coordinator and SS Superintendent she was a pleasure to work with. We will all miss her. God has gained a heavenly angel.

To the family of Ms. June Campbell...
I was one of her many students at Greenville Tech, '73-'75, & can proudly profess & attest that she literally touched the lives of millions of people thru the 1000's of students, friends, colleagues & caregivers that had the fortune of coming in contact with her. Ms. Campbell not only demanded perfection & precision but never gave up until she demonstrated such. It was with unprecedented patience, sensitivity & her keen sense of observation that she was able to 'meet' each of us wherever we were from within our individual learning curves to assure we were above standard in the ever-changing aspects of medicine as well as medical care, et al.
We never knew if she were downtrodden, not up to snuff or out of sorts on any level; she maintained professionalism on a very personal level & practiced what she preached without fail.
I am indeed, what I am in uniform, no less that what she expected! And, I AM forever changed by having had a mentor & teacher of such caliber!
Thank you family for sharing so freely, your mother, grandmother, wife, aunt, friend, teacher & leader!
The world is a better place because of Ms. June Campbell.
