September 10, 1945 – July 20, 2019
Doris McHazlett Campa, 73, passed away peacefully on July 20th, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Eagle Pass and raised in San Antonio, she was the daughter of Charles Harding McHazlett and Severiana Johnston McHazlett. Doris was loved by all who knew her, and she loved connecting with people. She was masterful at bringing people together for food, drinks, and conversation, and was well known for her New Year celebrations and Easter barbeques. The sizable gatherings she hosted for her extended family and friends at her house, her Medina Lake retreat, or downtown touched hundreds of lives through the years. Her enthusiasm for celebrations was infectious, and she treated anyone who came through her door like family. She was also a woman of compassion, always on the lookout for family, neighbors, friends, and work colleagues who needed her support. Doris worked for 25 years for the Texas Department of Health and Human Services and retired from UTSA as a Director of Material Management. In her retirement, she created a small business focused on providing traveling school and non-profit groups with cost-efficient access to area hotels. She was also a proud and active member of the Helotes Chamber of Commerce. Doris loved her family. Her children and grandchildren were very special to her. She will be missed by all who knew her, especially the family members she leaves behind. Her strength, love, generosity, and compassion will forever inspire her husband, children, and grandchildren. She is survived by her devoted husband of 55 years, John Inocencio Campa; her loving children--John Howard Campa, Charles Edward Campa (fiancée Annette Andrade), and Eva Lynne Weber (husband Craig Weber); three precious grandchildren--Jonathan Wesley Campa, Cameron John Weber, and Colton Kenneth Weber; siblings Frances Escobedo, Daniel McHazlett, Charlie McHazlett, Nancy Lehman, Margie Vera, Norma Wilson and Duane McHazlett, and numerous extended family members. A memorial service will be held on August 19, 2019, at 10 a.m. at Sunset Northwest Funeral Home, 6321 Bandera Road.

I have so many fond memories of family celebrations with Aunt Doris, especially Easter. We always celebrated Easter with Aunt Doris, Uncle John and many family members and friends. Aunt Doris always extended a warm welcome to everyone with abundant love and a great sense of humor. She will be greatly missed but I know she is with great company 🙏🏼 My deepest condolences to the Campa family. We extend all our love and prayers.

Our Sweet Auntie,
It has taken me almost a month to be able to read your obituary. I am still not quite ready to say goodbye to you. I have reread our texts and replayed your voicemails so many times these last few weeks and while they bring me to tears, they have begun to encourage me to be strong and love more each day. There are so many things you have taught us. Give often and generously, love each other, seize the opportunity to make someone's day special, work hard, and be strong. Our last conversation you wished for us to live a life of no regrets. You ended every conversation with an I love you and remember how special we were in each others heart. I don't know how you did it every day to be so loving to everyone, even complete strangers. You are truly one of a kind and I am so honored to have had you in my life. Your memory will live on as we share our stories with our children. You loved them all so much. I promise to take them to Dairy Queen like you always took me. There was not a bad day a conversation and dipped cone couldn't fix with Auntie... and as she said... I was never too old for her to take me. I couldn't have asked for a more Beautiful Angel to have loved me here on Earth and be our Guardian Angel in Heaven. I love you, Auntie!

I have looked at your picture what feels like a thousand times hoping for the words to come that could come close to describe a woman of your caliber but nothing seems to measure up. You were simply remarkable...a lady of grace who always cherished family and I thank god for all the times we spent together. Thank you for all the Easter celebrations, Thanksgiving events, birthday parties, Christmas presents (even when I was old enough to no longer qualify as "just the kids"), hilarious text messages and always being first in line to show support through sickness/tragedy. We miss you terribly and there isn't a day that we don't think of you wishing you were still here. I know you are dancing your heart out and already planning the first family reunion. You always said you had a connection with Avery and this is one of my favorite pictures. I know you will be watching over all of us... Love you always

Dear John and family,
My daughters, (Delia, and Lisa) and I wish to express our sincere thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Doris was always kind, thoughtful and considerate each time we saw her. I have wonderful memories of her sense of humor.

Dear Campa family,
We are so sad that Doris has gone to God. She was an unusual woman. When Eva married Craig she was immediately on board.
Doris and I always went out to lunch when we came to San Antonio. We talked about our mutual grandkids. I often told her how blessed she was to have them nearby. She would kindly say “Well you would see them often if you weren’t so far away
They are a blessing in my life.
Doris was brave with illness or injury, making it through trials and surgeries many would not have had the stamina to face.
She loved and was proud of her whole family.
Be at peace Doris. The love and welcome that you shared with
so many will continue on in remembrance of you.
Love to all your wonderful family
Who have you such thoughtful and loving care. Long distance hugs from Vermont to all of you.
Thanks for caring so well for our family.

I met Doris through my high school friend Nancy Lehman.Doris was at warmsprings at the time so Nancy and I wre there lots of times and being that my Godly duty I started praying for her.I began telling her how much God loved her regardless of her past present or condition. I wanted her to get well.this precious woman of God with so much to offer. Little did I know that our days were counted.One important thing I want to share is she met Jesus . That cleared her up to go right into heaven and that made me happy. The last words she said to me was thank you sister for loving me.I fell so in love with her true self and goodness I will miss her and her funny jokes.Thank you God for Doris and our short time together.Bless her and both sides of the family.Scripture I want to share is John3.16 and John14.2,For God so loved the world he gave his only son(Jesus) that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. In my father's house are many mansions if it were not so I would tell you,I go to prepare a place for you. My condolences to all family members.

My fondest memory of my Auntie was when she told me I had a Soprano attitude......Me,me,me,me,me,me,me, me, me,me,me,meeeeeee!!!! Haha! She actually sang that out loud in a soprano voice, it was awesome! And She was absolutely right! She was the smartest and most brilliantly witty person I’ve ever known. She cared and loved so deeply for people that all you wanted to do was to be around her constantly! She could captivate the silliest or most serious of audiences like no one else could and get them to do what she absolutely wanted them to do. You never stood a chance in her presence, you were like putty in her hands. She was absolutely amazing and unbelievably special. One of the strongest and most capable of women that I have ever met. I’ll never forget our talks about life, love, kids, politics and hair styles! She was truly a gem, my Auntie, I’ll never meet her equal. She taught me to be strong, persistent, love from the bottom of your heart and fight, never settle for less than what you want. Thank you for your love and for your time with me. I miss you so much and love you tremendously. You made a huge difference in my life and I’m a better person because of you. Stay cool Auntie! I love you always!

I’m sorry I’m unable to attend services for Doris but I’m fighting chemo issues at the moment.
I have great memories of Doris as a great hostess, friend, spouse and someone with a wonderful sense of humor. I always sought out Juan and Doris at all retiree luncheons and Old Timers Luncheon.
Please accept my condolences and prayers. Dale Jacobs Ret SAPD

I am thankful for all the memories and life lessons Doris taught me throughout the years. She was a very strong, ambitious, compassionate and generous woman. She never hesitated to help someone in need. Doris was also a fantastic loving grandmother to my son Jonathan. I will always be grateful for all she did for us.
I will truly miss her.

I remember my sister picking me up and us spending the weekend at the lake house, I have many good memories with my sister and as a student I spent a lot of time at her home, she was truly a beautiful woman as are all of my sisters. I wish I could have spent more time with her, she will be missed but I know she is with mom and dad making them happy.

We used to have family Bar B Qs at Mom and Dad's in the backyard.
Dad had a jukebox and we would dance with our spouses or with each other. Doris was always the best at "swing", since she loved movement and had so much energy. My daughter today says that when Doris walked into a room, she commanded it. Here is a picture of her during those days. She was already married and a Mom.

I have so many memories with Doris. When we were in high school, she was involved in choir and would go around the house singing. She never missed "American Bandstand". We learned to dance watching that show every day trying to emulate the steps of the kids on the show. This is how Doris looked back then (dark hair, young and beautiful).

If I had to choose one word to describe Doris, it would be "fearless". The best song, to describe Doris is "I Did it My Way". She was not afraid or intimidated by anyone or anything and was always very generous. She loved life and embraced all opportunities. She never let her personal health stop her from accomplishing her goals and managed her own business long after suffering a major stroke. The best memory I have of Doris is the joy and happiness that was obvious during her renewal of vows to John at South Padre Island. That is the memory I shall keep.
