Bernice Campbell

Bernice Campbell passed peacefully from this life Thursday (Aug. 22, 2013).

She was born in Fairmont to the late Randle Campbell and Hattie Campbell Sistrunk, and lived there for many years. In 1986, after raising her five sons and a daughter, Bernice moved to Baltimore, Md., where she lived the remainder of her life.

Bernice was baptized at Morning Star Baptist Church. She was a faithful member before moving to Baltimore. In Baltimore, she became a devoted member of Bethel AME Church, under the stewardship of Pastor Reid III.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
