Margaret Elizabeth Campbell, 88 of Norfolk, Va. peacefully passed away on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at home with her family and friends celebrating her life.
She was born to Russell Washington and Maggie Riddick on September 12, 1932 in the Oakwood section of Norfolk, Va.
Margaret enjoyed her life of being the mother of eleven children. As an only child her prayer was to have many offspring to love with the guidance of the Lord.
She was born into The Pentecostal Church of God under the leadership of Apostle W. J. Peterson in 1961. She cherished her time with her church family where she served as Head Usher for many years. She eagerly and patiently trained young ushers the proper way to serve the members and guests. She also served as the Administrator for the church scholarship fund for many years, which allowed many to pursue a higher education.
Margaret was generous with her time and befriended many of her neighbors and passersby in her community. She always greeted people with a warm smile and words of encouragement. She was pre-deceased by her husband Melvin Campbell and son Barrington Campbell.
Left to cherish her memory are her surviving children: Taunya Little (Jerome), Marion Hardy (Julius) Michael Campbell, (Barbara) Sharon Cuffee (Dennis) Vernice Stark, Russell Campbell, Carl Campbell (Cheryl) Sherry Ross (Steven), Nadine Gilliam (Jimmy), Gerard Campbell (LaTasha) and Gladys Gregory (like a daughter), 26 grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.
She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
