Jim Guidry Commentaries Hurricane Ike Remembered
In Remembrance
Ester Mae Campbell
Wynn Funeral Home

Mrs. Ester Mae Campbell, 90, was called home to God on Saturday, July 28, 2007.  Sister Campbell was born on May 10, 1917 in Oakwood, Texas to the union of Kelly and Molly Nickerson Johnson as the youngest of twelve children.

Sister Campbell attended school in the Oakwood community and moved to Galveston, Texas where she joined ShilohA.M.E.Church.  As as active member of Shiloh, she regularly attended services and demonstrated her commitment to the Church with her unwavering participation on the Missionary Board.  In addition to her involvement with ShilohA.M.E.Church, her Galveston community affiliations included The Widows Club.  In 1991, Sister Campbell moved to Missouri City, Texas and later to Sugar Land, Texas to live with the younger of her two  daughters, Mrs. Joe Ann Campbell Matthews, where she joined BrentwoodBaptistChurch.  Sister Campbell also lived with her eldest daughter, Ms. Kathylen Street, for one year in Los Angeles, California where she became a member of SolidRockBaptistChurch.

Mrs. Ester Mae Campbell's greatest joys in life were her children, grandchildren, traveling to California, and giving unselfishly.  She spent the majority of her life caring for others, both professionally and personally.  Sister Campbell loved life and touched so many throughout her blessed lifetime.  Her magnetic personality, optimism, and sense of humor was irresistible, which lends to it not being surprising why she was able to develop friendships with so many different types of people with utter ease.  Sister Campbell was a proud woman, yet her Christian morals and values were of utmost importance to her and she placed her faith and belief in God above everyone and everything.  Sister Campbell was also a strong woman, and she exhibited this unrelenting strength until God took her last breath.  "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:6-7).

Sister Campbell was preceded in death by her parents, eleven brothers and sisters, and husband of 40 years, Mr. Ned B. Campbell.  She leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, Joe Ann Campbell Matthews and Kathylen Street; five grandchildren, Dr. Adrienne ("A") Matthews, Debbie Bridgett Curtis (Antone), Constance Bridgett Hunter (Norman), Alphonso Street, II (Jacqueline) and Harold Street (Odile); four great-grandchildren (Jennifer, David, Debra, Danyalle, and Aaron); many loving nieces, nephews and cousins; and devoted friends, neighbors, and church family.

Visitation will begin at ShilohA.M.E.Church at 9:00 a.m. prior to the Home Going Service at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 1, 2007.  Reverends Eric and Myra Billips will officiate.

  Burial will follow at LakeviewCemetery in Galveston.
