Joy Marie (Manney) Campbell

June 8, 1943 ~ February 3, 2024 (age 80) 80 Years Old


Joy Marie Manney Campbell, age 80, was called to her heavenly home on Saturday, February 3, 2024. She was born on June 8, 1943, in Shamrock, Texas, to William Darrell Manney and Gladys Vey Estes Manney.

Joy grew up in Borger, Texas. She graduated from Texas Tech University with a master’s degree in education. Joy taught elementary school in the state of Texas for over 35 years, the majority of which was in Spring Branch Independent School District at Hollibrook Elementary. She met her future husband, Stafford, the weekend she moved to Houston. She loved art and began making woodcrafts when her daughter left home for college. Once she retired from teaching, she spent more time making them and sold them at craft shows. She particularly enjoyed making angels, crosses, Santas, and other Christmas decorations. In January 2014, she moved in with her daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren, helping out with her grandchildren’s care and education.

Joy was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Frank Stafford Campbell, Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Katy, and her husband Dennis DeBusk; twin grandsons, Kaden and Gavin, and granddaughter, Khloe; and her brother and sister-in-law, Gary, and  Fredna Manney.

A celebration of life service will be at 11a.m. Monday, February 19, 2024, in the chapel of Houston’s First Baptist Church, 7401 Katy Freeway.
