Susan Campbell Inman


Mrs. Susan Campbell Inman, 45, wife of John Vincent Inman and a resident of Exmore, passed away Friday, May 21, 2021, at her residence surrounded by her loving family. A native of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, she was the daughter of James D. Campbell and Cora Sue Scott Campbell, of Exmore. Susan was a physical therapist and member of Hollies Baptist Church.

Susan was the strongest person we’ve ever known, with pretty much all her doctors saying she wouldn’t live past Christmas 2015. With God, her strength, and faithful loving family and friends, she fought till the end seven years later. And now she is able to walk with loved ones that were waiting for her to come home. Being the amazing caring person she always was, her wish was to have her body donated for cancer research to possibly find out why she got cancer with no markers and not being hereditary, plus hopefully to help others with this disease. She met friends everywhere she went. She had loving friends from kindergarten that remained friends through her life and truly loved her and supported her.

Susan was an athletic person through her healthier days and she loved playing volleyball and basketball in high school as well as softball at times. She always looked forward to walking on the beach and discovering shells and other interesting things, although she hated sand between her toes. She loved putting together jigsaw puzzles and even when her mind wasn’t letting her focus and see clearly near the end, between her husband and hospice chaplain, Mary, she still did what she could. Susan was always a God-fearing person and loved Jesus with all she was. She grew to teach and help in children’s Sunday school, children’s ministries, including her favorite – Vacation Bible School.

In addition to her loving husband and parents, she is survived by her nine-year-old chocolate lab, Latte; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews all over the Eastern Shore; and many caring, supportive, and loving family members all over the country, too many to mention and we don’t want to leave any out.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Jude Cancer Research, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, or Duke Cancer Research, 710 W. Main St., Suite 200, Durham, NC 27701.
