Vennis Lucille McCampbell Cate

Vennis Lucille McCampbell Cate, age 93, of White Pine, TN, born on April 2, 1928 gained her heavenly wings and joined her loving husband of 69 years in heaven on October 30, 2021. She was of the Methodist faith and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a young age. She enjoyed working on the farm for many years with her husband. She also spent several years working at Magnavox. She is preceded in death by her husband, Roy H. Cate; parents, Wallace and Julia McCampbell; brothers, John, James and Paul McCampbell; sisters, Vinyard Matthews and Parathenia Matthews; brothers-in-law, Robert Franklin and Lon Franklin; sister-in-law, Lois McCoig; sons-in-law, George H.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Charter Senior Living, formerly known as Chandler House, for the special care and love she received while residing there, and also the staff at Jefferson Memorial Hospital for the exceptional care that was given to her during her stay there. She loved all the nurses there. She had a special friend at Charter Senior Living, Bobye Riney who visited with Vennis, and they shared many evenings talking together. Those were particularly special times when family wasn’t permitted to go inside the building. We will forever be grateful for that special friendship and bond they developed and shared.
