Jannie L. Campbell, a retired factory worker and housekeeper, died in her sleep Saturday at Keswick Multi-Care Center. She was 85.

Jannie Lue Terry was born and raised in Hodges, S.C. After graduating from high school in 1940, she moved to Baltimore with a sister.

Mrs. Campbell worked at W.E. Hooper and later was a housekeeper for several decades before retiring in the early 1980s.

The longtime Rogers Avenue resident, who had moved to Keswick last year, was a member for 67 years of Gillis Memorial Christian Community Church, where she co-founded several groups, including Just Us Girls and the Friendly Group.

Mrs. Campbell also had held various offices in the Pastor's Aide, Greeter's, Senior Ushers and South Carolina Christian ministries. Last year, she was recognized at a banquet as one of the church's Living Legend Pillars, family members said.

Mrs. Campbell, who had volunteered with the United Service Organization, was also a world traveler.

Her husband of many years, Adolphus "Don" Campbell, a mechanic and truck driver, died in 1997.

Services will be held 11 a.m. Friday at her church, 4016 Park Heights Ave.

She is survived by nephews and nieces.
