Vail Daily obituary: Beatrice ‘Tommie’ Campbell, 1929-2015

Beatrice (Tommie) Campbell, 85, of Miami and Beaver Creek, passed away March 26 at the Palace Suites in Miami.

Born April 24, 1929, Tommie graduated Miami High School and earned a BS degree from the University of Miami. She taught at Kenwood Elementary for three years and then embarked on a long and successful career in business. With her husband, James Campbell, she built and managed a 50-acre campground in the Redlands until the 1970s, when she retired for a life of travel and leisure. She and James sailed the Caribbean during summers and skied the Rockies during winters until he passed away in 2006. Her remaining years were spent on around-the-world cruises.

Tommie is survived by her brother Howard Downs, three children (Jam-E, Dawn and Clay) and five grandchildren.

Interment will be in Denver with her husband.
