Barbara Ann Miller Campbell of Florence, Alabama passed away on Sunday October 31, 2021 at her home.  

Barbara was born December 29, 1950 in Florence, Alabama to Edgar Bryan Miller and Barbara Singleton Bliss Miller.  Barbara graduated from Coffee High School in 1969.  She went on to study art at the University of North Alabama.  Prior to completing her degree, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she had her son Joseph McDaniel.  She was a stewardess for many major airlines while in Atlanta.  She loved to fly and serve others.  She also worked in social work. She loved counseling others and had a great desire to help those in need and truly cared for others.  She met her husband William “Bill” Campbell while working in this field.  

Barbara and Bill moved back to Florence in the late 1990’s and she finished her degree in art at the University of North Alabama.  She began her own business in graphic arts and was quite talented.  She did many projects for local companies and events from Helen Keller to the WC Handy Festival.  She was well known for a canvas piece “The Spam Can”.  She had a flare for being able to visualize projects and how they would turnout.  She was well loved by everyone she came in contact with.

Barbara was a member of the Florence First United Methodist Church where she attended as a young girl.  She had an avid love for animals, most especially cats which she had many cats over the years.  It was always fun to hear her tell funny stories about her crazy cats.  She had a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh you could not help but join in.

3 Comments on “Barbara Ann Miller Campbell”

  1. I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Barbara, a lovely lady! My thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

  2. My best friend Barb! She was a great friend. We met at UNA in the early 90s and were part of the Re Entering Student Association RESA. We were both “Older “ students and shared the challenges that came with that. We took drawing, painting, photography and ceramics classes together. Good times! She was always such an encouragement to me. I sure wish you could send me pictures of heaven, Barb… but I know I will see you there when my time comes!

  3. Barbara Miller Campbell was my neighbor and friend for over 15 years. She was such a joy! She loved to work in the yard…she had the prettiest yard on the street. I loved to go over and sit in the grass and visit with her as she would clip weeds with her scissors. She was also very neighborly, she had a few gatherings of the neighbors on Stewart Av. She was a special person.
    Cheers Barbara…RIP.
