WINTERPORT and FRANKFORT – Agnes Jean (Spohrer) Campbell, 80, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, March 5, 2013. She was born Feb. 27, 1933, in Scarborough, the eldest child of Albert E. and Roberta I. (Lade) Spohrer.
Aggie spent the majority of her life in Maine. She married the love of her life, Donald W. Campbell Sr. Sept. 6, 1950. Together Aggie and Don attended and graduated from Elohim Bible Institute in Castile, N.Y. They began ministering at Nealley’s Corner Church in 1963 and were members there for 50 years. Her door was always open and there was always room at her table. Her loves were her family, the ministry she shared with her husband and most of all, her Lord, whom she served for a lifetime and with whom she now dwells. Aggie had a genuine servant’s heart. The legacy of her many years of ministry at Nealley’s Corner Church has resulted in many, many brothers and sisters in Christ. It also resulted in many children and grandchildren in heart evidenced by how many simply referred to her as “Nannie.” Mom kept a daily journal right up until she went home. On Sunday, March 3, 2013, she wrote, “How do I love thee, let me count the ways. In the words of our Terri, To the moon and back.”
Aggie is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years, Donald W. Campbell Sr.; children, Bud Campbell and wife, Melanie, of Winterport, Ty Bishop of Frankfort, Diane Nute and husband, Jim, of Troy, Doug Campbell and wife, Marie, of Chania, Crete, Greece, Willie Campbell and wife, Terri, of Hancock, Peter Campbell of Tilton, N.H., and Matthew Campbell of Hampden; grandchildren, Joshua Campbell and wife, Becky, Cory Campbell and wife, Becky, Elizabeth Libby and husband, Justin, Joey Bishop and wife, Debbie, Jamie Bishop and wife, Heidi, Jason Bishop and wife, Marcie, Eric Nute and wife, Laura, Jill Overlock and husband, Dale, Aaron Campbell and wife, Larissa, Luke Campbell, Dustin Campbell and wife, Ana, Tiffany Eastman and Rhowen Campbell; 28 great-grandchildren; sisters, Wini Mott of South Paris and Judi Stanton of Detroit, Mich.; a brother, Andrew Spohrer and wife, Nancy, of Newburgh; a brother-in-law, Ashley Campbell and wife, Mary, of Frankfort; as well as several nieces, nephews and friends in Christ.
