Sandra Stone

Sandra was born September 1, 1933, in Duck Hill, MS to the late Mike Carroll Campbell, Sr. and Edna Jackson Campbell. Sandra was a precocious student and graduated from Grenada High School at 15 years old and received B.S. degree in both Chemistry and Biology from Millsaps College at 18 years old. She was accepted to medical school, but her plans changed when she met a handsome medical student, Deck Stone. Sandra and Deck were married August 17, 1952, and spent the next 68 years together. They settled in Batesville, MS in 1957, and Dr. Stone opened Stone Clinic which later became South Panola Hospital and Parkview Clinic. Sandra helped manage business affairs for the office.

Sandra and Deck raised their four children Carol Anne, Kent, Lynn, and Glen. Sandra was a voracious reader, avid bridge player and swimmer. She was a friend to many and quietly helped many people in their times of need. She was a member of the Methodist Church and co-taught the 2-year-old class for many years.

In addition to her parents and stepfather, Judson Dorroh, Sandra was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Deck Stone, her son, Kent Deck Stone, her son-in-law Robert Lightsey and her brothers, Dr. Mike Campbell, Jr. and Bob Campbell, sister-in-law, Yona Holroyd (Dr. Bill) and brother-in-law Van Stone (JoAnn).
