I was saddened by the news of the loss of your mother, Campsa Dotson. How blessed you all have been to have had her love through the years! I had the honor and privilege of working with her in my first staff position at Monongalia General Hospital. I was a graduate nurse on the Medical Surgical unit; she had just re-entered the profession. I have wonderful memories of our working relationship. She was gentle, kind, and competent. She also had the sweetest smile. We had a great team of nurses on our unit, Campsa, Linda Bennett, Ellen Mason and I led by our head nurse, Fran Douglas. Campsa would willingly help other team members with their patient assignments. She was a role model for those of us beginning our careers. We worked with some wonderful doctors… Dr. Maynard Pride, Dr. Edgar Heiskell, Jr., and Dr. Carl Johnson. We honored the practice of respectfully giving the doctors our seats when they entered the unit and pulling the records for their review. We accompanied them on rounds and often took verbal orders. We once got a call from administration that asked us to prepare for a “VIP” to be admitted. We all agreed that this patient would be no different than others…We always gave “VIP” care to every patient on our unit! I will note that I also had the honor of being cared for by your father, Dr. Dotson. I was a student at West Virginia University in the 60’s and he was my doctor at Student Health. Your parents have both left a legacy of caring for so many in the community of Morgantown, WV. I am blessed to have known them. May their gifts of caring live on through your loving relationships.

My deepest condolences to the family . I remember Campsie giving me a shot for something in their kitchen on Maple Avenue, then Bobby and myself heading out to play for a while before supper. The memories and thoughts will keep her with us always.

Wish to extend my deepest sympathies to your family for your loss. I can remember going to see the doctor when I was little when he was in Cameron. He took my tonsils out and I had this green hat with a turtle on top of it.

Condolence from Diane (Faulkiner) Hicks on February 9th, 2015 7:12 pm

just saw your mothers obituary on facebook. My condolences to all of you. I remember you all so well from back in the 50’s. I live between Cameron and Moundsville. If you all remembers us Disne,Mike DeeDee and Dan Faulkiner and our mother was Dottie. We lost Mike 6 years ago to pancreatic cancer. He had been in pro football in the NFZl since the late 79’s. Would love to hear from you all. God Bless you all.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I still remember all the time I spent at your house growing up in Cameron and the family atmosphere she created. I always felt at home. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

Sam, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I was in high school with you and a neighbor in the Virginia Manor neighborhood in Morgantown WV. I remember visiting your home and your Mom. . . fond memories of years ago.

I found out you lived in DC for years. I was there 1973 through 1989 and I’m sorry our paths never crossed. I hope to renew our friendship at the MHS 50th reunion this summer.

Condolence from Carol Ann Neimes on December 21st, 2016 9:49 pm

My condolences to all of you on the death of your mother Campsa. My family lived across the alley from your family and my mother, Naomi Guthrie , owed her life to your dad for getting her to John Hopkins for heart surgery which enabled her to live until 1986. I have a picture of you, Sam, with me, sitting on ths curb in front of our house. You were 4 yrs. Glad to know you are all together now. Love, Kay Guthrie Neimes
