Mattie Campbell

Obituary Born Mattie Mae Stancil on December 13, 1911 to the late William and Carrie Stancil. She was introduced and placed her faith in Christ at an early age at Miles Chapel AME Church in Stewart, Alabama. Refusing to be stifled by her limited access to education, Mattie moved to Bessemer to live with her sister Pearl Bell and attended Dunbar High School. It was at this time she became a lifelong member of Allen Temple A.M.E. Church. It was here in Bessemer that she met and married the love of her life the late Lee Campbell and to this union five children were born. They thrived for their children to know the Lord and to have a better education they were able to obtain for themselves. Mattie went against what was considered normal for a married woman and began working at Liberty Laundry and later moving on to Princeton Baptist Medical Center. Because of Mattie and Lee’s hard work, they were able to pay for all five of their children to attend and finish college of their choice. She was preceded in death by: sisters, Pearl Bell and Veola Mac Williams; daughter, Carrie Campbell Rutland and grandson, Giovanni Tyson. Mattie transitioned to go home to be with the Lord on June 17, 2016 at the age of 104. She leaves to cherish her memories: daughters, Dorothy Tyson, Crystal Smith and Emphris (Gregory) Barnes; son, Dr. Lee G. (Merlene) Campbell; granddaughters, Madelyn Tyson and Cleopathia (Utaw) Turner; grandsons, Dr. Louis Rutland, III, Dr. Reuben C. (Flo) Rutland, Lee G. Campbell, II, Gregory L. (LaShandra) Barnes and Christopher J. Smith; sister-in-law, Catherine Campbell, fourteen great grandchildren, one great-great granddaughter and a host of niece, nephews, family and friends.
