Priscilla Lynn Campbell

Priscilla Lynn Campbell: 2023 – 2023

Priscilla Lynn Campbell, a precious baby girl who was meant to grace this world with her presence in November, was born silently on September 27, 2023.

Though Priscilla’s time here never began, her presence left a profound impact on all of those connected to her. Priscilla was so full of life and energy while growing inside her beautiful Mommy, Cassidy, with her ninja style rib kicks and energetic nights full of graceful back flips and yoga style stretching.

She was so eagerly awaited by her maternal grandparents, Joshua and Rachel Anderson; her uncle D’Andre Anderson; and her great aunt and uncle Regina and Richard Boyce; along with her many cousins; great-grandma Deb; great-grandma Renita; and father, Austin Wilkerson; along with many friends. 

Priscilla’s loss has left a void in many lives, but especially in her mommy, Cassidy Campbell, who has spent months dreaming of her first cry, her first laugh, her first word, her first step, all which are now frozen in time.

Priscilla will forever hold a special place in the hearts of all who waited eagerly to meet her and create lifelong memories with her. Although we will never get to hear the sweetness of her cry or watch her grow into the personality, we knew she already had, we will hold close to the comfort that she rests peacefully with her father god in heaven.

As we remember Priscilla Lynn, let us cherish the excitement, joy and light she brought us all, no matter how briefly. May her short life remind us all of the preciousness of children and the love we all had for her.

In remembrance of Priscilla Lynn Campbell, forever loved, forever missed and forever in our hearts.
