NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. - Funeral services for Mrs. Rebecca Blandford Campbell, 60, of Shoreline Drive East, North Augusta, SC, who entered into rest August 2, 2008, will be conducted this Tuesday morning at 10:30 from Fairview Presbyterian Church. Dr. Robert F. Fuller, Jr., and Dr. G. Daniel McCall officiating. Interment in Sweetwater Cemetery. Mrs. Campbell was a native of Augusta, a former resident of Waynesboro and Conyers, Georgia, having made North Augusta her home for the past 12 years. She was a member of Fairview Presbyterian Church, a retired Registered Nurse and Vice President of the 1210 Land Company. Mrs. Campbell was the daughter of the late Joseph Roland and Nora Weede Blandford. Becky fought a long and heroic battle against brain cancer GBM4. Living 5 × years from known onset she was at the head of her class of survivors. Without the help of her true daughter April Turner, her sisters Annie Bell Hammonds, Mattie Curry, & Susanne Dunton, and her brothers Irving Richardson & Donnie Dunton the journey would have been impossible. Kinship goes beyond blood and we are grateful for their services as well as our minister, Dr. Robert F. Fuller, Jr. and Dr. G. Daniel McCall who visited more than 200 times during the illness, Pat Bible who introduced Tim & Becky more than 40 years ago and who was at Becky's bedside when she passed into eternity, and Deena Latargia and the other Heartland Hospice staff who provided care, love, and support for us both. We also express gratitude to the Clifton family. Survivors include her husband of 12 years, Tim R. Campbell, one son, Anthony Wong, Miami, FL; two daughters and a son-in-law, Eleanor and Elson Cornett and Lee Ann Wong all of Houston, TX; two stepsons and a step daughter- in-law, Timothy R.
