Obituary of Cynthia E Campbell

Cynthia (Sister C; Cynth, Mother Campbell) E. Campbell was born on April 8, 1936, to Agatha and George Hinds in Palmetto Grove, Jamaica, WI. She was the 3rd of nine (9) children. She professed her faith in Jesus Christ at the age of thirteen (13). She would later meet Ivan S. Campbell (Bishop) while he was teaching Sunday School. Three months after their initial meeting, on September 21, 1960, they were married. Together they raised seven (7) children of their own, plus a multitude of others. They taught them to fear the Lord and to always keep Christ first in their lives. Monday night at Campbell’s house was a night of worship and prayer. For one full hour the entire family, along with invited friends and neighbors participated in hymns, prayer and Bible scripture reading. In 1969, Cynthia came to the United States by herself after much prayer between her and her beloved husband. She would work as a maid and nanny to many families creating a path to bring her husband and children to the United States. She developed extraordinary relationships with the families she cared for that would last until her death. She also worked at the Gordon Garden Center in Mt. Holy and prior to coming to the US, she worked as a seamstress, making beautiful clothing for people. She would later leverage these skills to make clothes for her children. Together with her husband (Bishop Campbell) they co-founded the Gospel Foundation Churches (now Calvary Church of God) in Jamaica. There she served as first lady and mother. Mother Campbell, she would later be called by many, loved Christ and people. This was reflected not only in her church ministry, but in every aspect of her life. Anyone who knew Sister C/Cynth, Mother Campbell would tell you that she was a pillar of strength, a woman of great faith and fierce. You could trust her word and she had wisdom that went far beyond what can be explained. While she may not have had a formal college education, she was smarter than most, resourceful and brilliant, especially in her parenting acumen. Most of all, she was kind and hospitable, always opening her home to anyone that needed it and providing them with food and love. You could not be in her presence and not feel loved. Her house was a revolving door, and many people came through it to get wisdom, hear her stories, enjoy her cooking, and bask in her wit. She was also relentless about her children getting an education and leveraging the power of Christ with their education to achieve their goals. Mother Campbell joined Miller’s Temple Church of God in Christ in 1980 and became the last mother of the five (5) mothers who prayed for a pastor with a wife to go home to glory under the leadership of her beloved Pastor Tommie L. Smith and Evangelist Angela Smith. Mother Campbell was known for her beautiful hats, even during COVID when she could not attend Church in person, each Sunday she would put her Sunday hat on for service. She went to glory leaving behind to join her, children: Oneda, Hyacinth, Andrea, Paul (Christine), Maxine (Bobby), Garfield(Stephanie); Alex(Carlos); Grandchildren: Jackie(Jay), Paul, Michael, Steven(Jen), Kerri-Ann (William), Elvis (Bebe), Gabrielle, Maddison, Joshua, Jessica, Christopher and Cameron, brothers and sisters, Millicent, Sherman(Daphne), Martel(Flo) and Winsome; plus numerous niece and nephews and adopted daughters (e.g., Sandee, Mazie, Janice, etc), sons and grandchildren. The family of Cynthia E. Campbell wishes to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to those both near and far for your comforting words, memories, prayers, calls, texts, and other acts of kindness.
