Obituary of Suzanne Kathleen Campbell

Please share a memory of Suzanne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Suzanne Kathleen Campbell was born in Easton, Pennsylvania on May 14th,

1944. She always had a thirst for knowledge which enabled her to graduate high

school at 17. While in high school, she engaged in many activities such as cheerleading

and playing the trumpet and French horn in the band. Suzanne attended Virginia

State University from January of 1961 until December of 1962 where she majored

in Physics and Art. In 1973, Suzanne joined the Postal Service as an Expeditor at its

newly established Merrifield Post Office where she worked until her retirement in

August 2003. When she retired from the post office, she worked part-time at J. C.

Penney and Best Buy for a few years before retiring for good in 2010.


Suzanne raised her five children as a single mom with the help of family and

close friends. She demonstrated the values of love, learning, kindness, giving and

helping others. She was her children’s biggest supporter and was always there to lend

an ear, listen to their problems, give advice, and provide correction when needed. She

would often lend a helping hand to others even when she did not have much herself

and provided a place for people to stay who had nowhere else to go.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2024, Suzanne Kathleen Campbell, age 79, passed away

surrounded by loved ones after a brief battle with cancer. She was preceded in death

by her father Wilson Hatcher, mother Sarah Virginia Hatcher, and brothers Benny

Hatcher, George Hatcher, and Robert Hatcher.


She was a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and

cousin. She is survived by her devoted children: Gerard (Christina) Campbell,

Tanya (Ed) Long, Carlton (Karen) Campbell, Mark Campbell, and Niko (Veronica)

Campbell; her grandchildren: Lavera (Courtney) Montgomery, Gerard (Brenda)

Taylor, Jordan Campbell, Jeremiah Campbell, Christopher Brown, Imani Maycole,

Johnathan Long, Angela (Michael) Scheiner, Erich (Mary) Long, Kiona Saunders,

Kecia Campbell, Kamisha Campbell, Carlton Campbell Jr, Jaxin Campbell,

Dominique Campbell and Sasha Campbell; great-grandchildren: Elijah Montgomery

(Lavera), Jaleah Taylor, Chloe Taylor, Jaylen Taylor, Gerard Taylor Jr., Taniyah

Saunders, Tamryn Saunders, Tahj Saunders, Kendall Saunders, Kingston Saunders

(Kiona), Tyree Bacchus, Trinity Campbell, Greyson Campbell (Kecia), Jayde Warren,

Elijah Oliver (Kamisha), Asher Long, Griffin Long and Killian Long (Erich). Other

survivors include her sisters; Mary Saunders and Christine Hatcher, brothers; Roger

Hatcher and John (Phyllis) Hatcher, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins

spanning several generations.


Suzanne’s life was such a rich tapestry of achievements, challenges, and moments

of joy, attempting to capture the essence of her uniqueness in words would require a

book. Her memory will forever remain etched in the hearts of those who cherished

her and those fortunate enough to have shared their lives with her.
