Deborah “Debbie” Roberts Campbell Bradford, 70, passed away on Friday, September 16, 2022 after a long battle with early onset dementia. She is the daughter of the late, Romey and Myrtle Roberts. Debbie grew up in Bristol as the youngest of nine children. She is a graduate of Tennessee High School. She later moved to Lebanon, VA where she lived and raised her three children for over 20 years.
Debbie is survived by her children, J.R. Campbell and wife Candice of La Vernia, TX, Robin Napier and husband Travis of Bristol, Tenn. and Jennifer Campbell of Richmond, VA; as well as her grandchildren, Brennan Napier, Trent Napier, Blake Napier, Connor Boone, J.R. Campbell IV and Kennedy Campbell; sisters, Anna May Murray and husband A.J., and Eileen Moore; one brother, Danny Roberts.
Debbie volunteered at her kids’ school when they were little and was so very proud of them. She loved the Lord and has looked forward to reuniting with her “momma” for quite some time. Debbie was an amazing baker. She delighted in people enjoying her baked goods. She was an avid reader and probably read more books than what’s kept in the local library. She lived by the motto, “such is life” until the very end.
A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at Weaver Funeral Home with Shawn Street officiating.
The children of Debbie would like to send a special thanks to the staff at Holston Manor Rehabilitation Center on the 100 wing, for loving and caring for their mother the past ten months.
