“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:21 King James Version (KJV)
JoAnn Campbell, 86, of Elizabethton, Tenn., went home to be with the Lord on Monday, April 19, 2021, at Johnson City Medical Center. JoAnn was the daughter of the late Charles Raymond Hughes and Thelma Stepp Hughes. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Delores Craig and Jenny Lou Hopson.
JoAnn was retired as a bookkeeper for the Carter County School System and was a member of First Freewill Baptist where she played the piano for more than 50 years and served as Sunday School secretary. JoAnn was on the board of directors at Northeast Community Credit Union for 47 years and was a graduate of Elizabethton High School, Class of 1952. She then graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from ETSU. JoAnn loved to play the piano, gardening, watching sports – especially the Atlanta Braves – and watching her sons and grandsons playing sports.
Those left to cherish JoAnn’s memory include her husband, James Spencer “Bo” Campbell, of the home; two daughters, Cathy Curtis and Jo Ellen Campbell, both of Elizabethton; one son, Marc Campbell and wife Laura of Easley, S.C.; her grandchildren, Andy Curtis (Erica), Ryan Curtis, Hunter Pierson (Brianna), Anna Grace Campbell, Jacob Stokes and Joshua Stokes; one great-granddaughter, Avery Curtis; one brother, Ted Hughes of Johnson City; and a special friend, Carolyn Pleasant.
