Theresa Ann Campbell

Theresa Ann Campbell was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on June 18, 1940. Her mother was unable to keep her, but her grandparents quickly adopted her and gave her the loving home that she deserved. Ann always spoke highly of Grandma and Grandpa Sneed. She said her childhood was so happy that she had no idea how poor they really were. Her grandmother always told her that other people had to take whatever children they got, but that she was lucky because she got to choose her sweet baby, Ann! Grandma Sneed taught her the importance of being responsible and caring for your family. This was a lesson Ann lived her entire life.

When Ann finished high school, she went on to cosmetology school and became a hair stylist. Ann was entrepreneurial from the beginning. Her salons had jewelry and clothing too, so the customers could browse while they were waiting. This enterprising legacy was born and continued to follow her throughout her life. The 60’s were not the most encouraging place for women who wanted to build empires and fulfill their dreams, but that did not stop Ann. She had regrettable circumstances to overcome in her early days as the mother of Robert and Robin. Her husband, Robert Lindsay, was killed in an accident as a lineman. Her house burned down, and she was scarred for life as she escaped the flames. These two events could have paralyzed her, but she preferred to concentrate on the positive and hold fast to her belief that God would not give her more than she could handle.  

Ann moved on with her life. She studied and received her real estate license to begin a new career. She later met the love of her life, Jack Campbell. She described their meeting as seeing him across the room at a party. She said, “He was a dashing man in a uniform” and she was instantly smitten. They married and settled in Edmond, Oklahoma. She continued her promising career in Real Estate with Mo Anderson at Century 21 Titan. Later she transferred to Remax. Agents closest to her say she was a confident communicator, always believing all the clients would be best served listing their property with her. She was attentive to her clientele in exhaustive ways, always going the extra mile to accommodate them. There is a story told about one of her clients suggesting he had heard if you walked around the house while blowing a bugle the house would sell faster. There went Ann, bugle in hand, doing her best impression of Joshua at the battle of Jericho. She sold the house shortly thereafter. She was a people pleaser before it became an iconic label.  

She attended National Real Estate Conventions where she consistently received national awards. Ann earnestly attended the meetings in an effort to study the ideas that were presented. The innovations she liked were implemented and those recommendations helped her sell much of Edmond. Of course, being Ann, she would grab her best buddies and they would go “power shopping” at these same conventions. Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Nordstrums have been crestfallen without her charismatic presence since her retirement. She maintained her love of beautiful clothes and the importance of “bling” to the very end.  

During her lifetime she was able to take her family and go on some amazing vacations giving them experiences they will always remember. Her grandchildren talk about waterfalls in Hawaii and ski trips to Aspen. She continued sharing with her family as she’d been taught in her early years by Grandma Sneed. She was so proud of their every achievement and helped involve them in sporting as well as artistic events.

Jack and Ann made their home in the Oak Tree area. They enjoyed their retirement there until his death in 2020. Due to an untimely fall, subsequent surgery, and a lengthy hospitalization, Ann was unable to arrange for Jack’s final Celebration of Life. This consequential lack of closure haunted her the rest of her life. Her only real comfort was in her faith in The Lord. She held on steadfastly to her hope in Him.

She moved from her home in Oak Tree to a retirement community, Highland 55. She made friends there and enjoyed herself at the parties and game nights. Her favorite pastime, however, was being with her family. Her Grandson, Ryan, was consistent in coming to get her on Sunday and taking her to church with him. They would always meet his daughter, Tia, and go to lunch afterward. She was simply in her element at those lunches. Their attention meant the world to her. She loved to talk about how proud she was of her great-granddaughters. Her Great-granddaughter, Reanna was an extreme source of pride for her. She loved to talk about all her accomplishments. Her daughter-in-law, Julie, was her go to caretaker when she would have to rehab from a surgery or hospital stay. Ann had supported and given so much to her family over the years and finally, they were able to give back to her. Ann was beloved by so many friends and family members. She passed on May 15, 2024, surrounded by family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Jack W. Campbell, her son, Robert Lindsay, and her daughter, Robin Fair.  She is survived by her grandson, Robert Ryan Lindsay; her granddaughter, Cissy Lindsay; her great-granddaughter, Tia Lindsay; and her great-granddaughter, Reanna Lindsay.

We will all miss her charismatic personality, her loving attitude, and her larger-than-life character. Blessings on her family as they enter this journey of memories
