Published 11:01 am Thursday, August 10, 2017

Doris Jean Campbell Logan, daughter and first child born to Luther and Alberta Campbell of Oxford, Mississippi, was born November 1, 1937. She esteemed the position as the first born, and became the self-proclaimed “president” of her family and dutifully served as the Commander in Chief of her family and on family matters.

On Thursday, August 4, 2017, around 1:00 p.m., God sent down His Heavenly angel to deliver Doris into His arms.  She simply closed her eyes in blessed peace and tranquility amid family and friends.  God plans everything perfectly. He planned that Doris would leave her earthly home on the same day as her daddy, who left his earthly home on August 4, 1995.

Doris received her grade school education in the public schools in Lafayette County. In 1958, she graduated from Oxford Training School (later changed to Central High School) During this time she captured the heart of Judge Lee Logan of Abbeville; and, on January 24, 1959, they were united in holy matrimony.   They were blessed with four children:  Carolyn Annette, Bobby Glenn, Julius Byron and Denise Rochelle.
