Betty was born to Newton and Sara Campbell in Troy, Alabama. Her family and friends recognized Betty as a true Southern Belle. As a young woman, she started her career in a local ice cream shop making sodas and banana splits. Later, Betty became a telephone operator. Finally, she worked for the Landers Company, a Christian based family-owned business, as a secretary. Betty’s interest and hobbies ranged from playing tennis and golf. She especially loved to watch her daughter, Gail, in ballet and her son, Vincent, fly. She also enjoyed writing; however, her biggest joy was loving and taking care of her family. Betty was a devout member of Woodlawn Methodist Church where she served in several capacities. As a dear friend, Miss Charlotte Ball, said, “she just loved people.”
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Newton and Sara Campbell; son, Vincent Pike; brothers, James Revel Campbell, William Campbell, and Lamar “Pud” Campbell; and sister, Stacey Brooks. She is survived by her daughter, Gail Campbell Pike; brothers, Huey Campbell, John Campbell, and Kenneth Campbell.
