Richardson-Davis Funeral Home
Barbara M. Campbell, 65, of Martinsburg, W. Va., died Sunday, Nov. 29, 2009 at Heritage Center Embracing Hospice in Snellville, Ga. after becoming seriously ill while visiting her daughter. She had been in declining health for the last 18 months. Born April 28, 1944 in West Palm Beach, Fla., she was the daughter of the late Bruce M. Campbell and Lillian C. "Pat" (Fremming) Campbell. Barbara graduated from Galion High School in 1962 and received her Registered Nursing Degree from Fairview Park Hospital in Cleveland. She earned a Masters Degree in Public Health Administration from Kent State University. She has lived and worked many places over her lifetime spending her entire working life helping and caring for other people and working for the U.S. Government. Most importantly she enjoyed being a dedicated nurse. She served with the U. S. Air Force during the Vietnam War, stateside, as an emergency room nurse at a private hospital and later was a Lieutenant Commander and a nurse in the U. S. Navy. In the late 1990s she volunteered helping Native Americans at the Crow Agency in Montana. On Sept. 11, 2001 she was working as an Emergency Room Charge Nurse at Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan during and after the World Trade Center attacks. She then worked for the U. S. Customs and Department of Homeland Security. Until Oct. 16, 2009 she was working for the U. S. Coast Guard. Barbara enjoyed her work so much that her idea of a vacation was volunteering for Doctors Without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organization, teaching pulmonary techniques in Latvia. Surviving are one daughter and son-in-law, Sarah and Andrew Womer of Snellville, Ga.; one grandson, James Paul Womer; one sister and brother-in-law, Christine and Richard Holdrup of San Francisco and one nephew, David Copper, of Galion. Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009 at Fairview Cemetery in Galion with Pastor Julie Fogle officiating with Military graveside services conducted by the Galion/Crestline area veterans organizations. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Richardson-Davis Funeral Home. Memorial contributions may be made to one of her favorite charities supporting wounded combat veterans to the WVA Wounded Warrior Fund, P.O. Box 51, Lewes, DE 19958.
