Aleta Rose Campbell


Aleta Rose Campbell, 71, of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, passed away on September 12, 2023, peacefully at home with her children at her side. Aleta was born to Joseph Whittaker and Rosa Cassdenti on July 15, 1952.

She was dearly loved by all her family. She was known for her artistic abilities, so much so that her grade school teacher took a picture of a baby she drew and gave her an A+ but never returned the photo to her. She also sewed dresses for her daughters year-round. Aleta was a loving and faithful wife to her husband, Charley Monroe Campbell SR, for 51 years. She passed within 11 months of her late husband. Aleta was the epitome of God’s messenger to the world, always teaching the love of God.

She would always pray for people when she prayed over her food; she prayed for people around the world, for people she never even knew. She will always be greatly loved and missed.

Aleta is survived by her children, Charley Monroe Campbell Jr., Samantha Starr Gardner, and Bernice Shenle Campbell, her siblings, Roufe Whittaker, Earnest Whittaker, Robert Whittaker, Tommy Whittaker, David Whittaker, Kenny Whittaker, Rosely Whittaker, Jeanie Whittaker, Judith Whittaker, Ruby Whittaker, Norma Whittaker, Terry Whittaker, 11 grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her husband, her parents, and Margret Whittaker, who helped raise her.

The family will hold a memorial service on Friday, September 22, 2023, at 5:00 PM at the Beit Hillel Messianic Fellowship in Stilwell, Oklahoma with Rabbi James Gillispie officiating.

Corinthians Chapter 13

I may speak in the tongues of men, even angels;
but if I lack love, I have become merely
blaring brass or a cymbal clanging.

I may have the gift of prophecy,
I may fathom all mysteries, know all things,
have all faith — enough to move mountains;
but if I lack love, I am nothing.

I may give away everything that I own,
I may even hand over my body to be burned;
but if I lack love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind, not jealous, not boastful,
not proud, rude or selfish, not easily angered,
and it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not gloat over other people’s sins
but takes its delight in the truth.
Love always bears up, always trusts,
always hopes, always endures.

Love never ends; but prophecies will pass,
tongues will cease, knowledge will pass.
For our knowledge is partial, and our prophecy partial;
10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass.

11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child,
thought like a child, argued like a child;
now that I have become a man,
I have finished with childish ways.

12 For now we see obscurely in a mirror,
but then it will be face to face.
Now I know partly; then I will know fully,
just as God has fully known me.

13 But for now, three things last —
trust, hope, love;
and the greatest of these is love.
