I wanted to let our friends in Springs know that my beautiful Mother passed away. She loved living in Miami Springs (1290 Red Bird Avenue) and made many friends there. Here is her obituary (submitted by Judy Campbell-Karpis) ~
Dorothy Large Campbell went to be with The Lord 05/07/2021 as a result of complications from multiple strokes. She leaves behind a daughter, Dr. Judy Campbell-Karpis (Alexander); four grandchildren, Rebecca Landfield Koch, Esquire/JD (Rudy, Esquire/JD), Dr. Ryan Landfield (Dr. Susan Hogle), Major. John Karpis -USAF (Natalie-Major, USAF) and Alexander McKinley Karpis. She had 8 great- grandchildren, Grace, Claudia, William & Henry, Maeryn, Benedict, ￼Freya & Jefferson.
She is pre-deceased by her loving husband Roy and her oldest daughter, Joan Campbell Landfield.
She was born and raised in rural Sevier County, Tennessee. She lived for 50 years in Miami Springs, FL before moving back to the family homestead in 2013.
A devoted wife and mother, “Dot” was a stay at home Mom until my sister & I were teenagers. She worked many years in the Credit Department of JC Penny. She also served as Pastor’s Secretary and bookkeeper at First Baptist Church of Hialeah until her retirement.
She was a wonderful role model and friend to many. She touched many lives during her lifetime.
She will always be remembered as a sweet, elegant lady who put God and family first. Drop a memory in the comments if you will~🌹 RIP Mom 🙏
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
