Molly Rae McKinney Campbell, beloved Occupational Therapy Assistant, passed away on January 14, 2024. She was a cherished daughter, sister, mother, and friend. Molly's warm heart and kind spirit touched the lives of all who knew her.

Molly Rae McKinney Campbell was born to Johnny McKinney (Donna) and Mary M. Loftis-Hall (Richard) in Halifax. She was a joy in their lives and brought so much laughter to her family. Growing up, Molly shared countless adventures and memories with her brother, Grant Brizendine (Elizabeth). Their sibling bond was unbreakable through the years. They supported each other through thick and thin and created lifelong memories that will be cherished forever. Molly also leaves behind two other brothers. Johnny McKinney II (Morgan) and Jared McKinney (Maria) that she shared many fond memories with and her nephew, Wade McKinney. A grandfather who adored Molly in every way, Vince Loftis.

As a mother, Molly's love for her son Finley Campbell knew no bounds. She poured all her love and dedication into raising him to be the remarkable person he is today. Her unconditional love will forever remain in Finley's heart.

Molly also leaves behind two cousins who were like sisters to her – Kelly Henderson (Jay) and Shelly Beadles (Andy). Their bond was unbreakable, and they shared countless memories together that created an unshakable foundation of love.  Throughout the years, Jay loved and treated Molly as a little sister. In addition to her immediate family, Molly is survived by her beloved pet Willow Bean. Willow was more than just a pet, she was a loyal companion who brought comfort during both good times and bad.
