Ida Bell Obituary

It is with overwhelming sadness, that the Bell family, of Roanoke, announces the passing from this life of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, Ida (Cameron) Bell, 72, a native and life long resident of Roanoke.  Mrs. Bell, the wife of Reverend Claude Bell,  transitioned from this life on Friday, February 9, 2024, at her residence in Roanoke.  Our family will long cherish and remember her for being a wonderful and loving wife to our father, Claude Bell, and an amazing mother to all of us.  We request your prayers as we anticipate the celebration of her life, legacy and homegoing. We are already grateful to God for our family, friends and loved ones for the outpouring of love and prayers that have already come our way since her passing... 

In Loving Memory Of Mrs. Ida Bell (Cameron) Bell

Ida Bell Cameron was born in Randolph County, Alabama on August 5, 1951, to the parentage of the late Scott and Hattie Mae (Goss) Cameron.  From a very early age, her parents raised their children in Friendship Baptist Church, Broughton Community in Wadley.  Under the loving and watchful eye of her mother and father, the first lesson she learned was how to smile and make everybody love her.  But, Ida learned other valuable lessons well — like how to be a homemaker, prepare good nutritious food, and care for children.  

Ida was highly regarded as the "Matriach" of the Cameron Family!   God anointed her with a kind, gentle spirit.  She had a way about her, that was always agreeable, YET she could motivate people to move.  She treasured the family's history, and guarded it with her heart.  She was the one who could always get the family together to get things done.

She attended the historic Randolph County Training School, graduating with the class of 1969.   She married the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Claude Bell.  Following the example set by her father and mother, they established their home in Roanoke, where they remained together throughout the years, rearing their five children: Mimi, Kimpley, Freda (dec), Christopher, and Sted (dec).   Ida was employed for 29 years, with Ready Mark, a local Ink Manufacturing Company, where she worked as a label maker.   Choosing to worship and serve God with her husband, Ida joined Wehadkee Missionary Baptist Church, where she remained steadfast in her attendance and service until God called her home. She LOVED her church; and loved her pastor.  During her active years, she was a "mover and shaker!"   She busied herself with Church work serving as Missionary Society President, Sunday School Teacher, and singing in the Church Choir.   

Though steadfast and determined to love and trust God, life did serve them some difficult days:  the loss of their beautiful daughter, Freda E. Bell, and son Sted M. Bell; brothers: Frankie, Joseph, and Moses; sisters: Lennie Faye Heard, and Annie Mae Porthress.   However, at times like this, we are reminded of what Jesus said in John 16:33:  "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. God is with us in every season of our life."  As so as God in his providence saw fit to summon Ida on Friday, February 9, 2024, we are faced with the difficult task of consigning her precious temple back to the earth, and her spirit into the loving arms of the Creator

Now broken-hearted, yet encouraged and trusting in God's divine wisdom, her survivors include her beloved husband, Reverend Claude Bell of Roanoke; three (3) children: Mimi Isbell (Todd) of Tuscaloosa, AL, Kimpley Caldwell (Harvey) of Douglasville, GA and Christopher Claude Bell of Seymour, IN; four (4) grandchildren: two (2) great-grandchildren; one (2) brothers: Gordon Cameron (Barbara) of Dothan, AL and Charles Cameron of Roanoke;  three (3) sisters: Patricia Brown (Larry) and Rose Emma Cameron both of Roanoke, and Sandra Williams (Perry) of Columbus, GA; two (2) brothers-in-law, Benard Heard of Wadley, and Reverend Bobby Bell (Vickie) of Decatur, GA; five (5) sisters-in-law: Tammy Cameron of Roanoke, Nancy Snipes of Durham, NC, Linda Faye Bell of Roanoke, Nanette Phillips (Kenneth) of Roanoke and Alice V. Thornton of Atlanta and finally but not least, a host of nieces, nephews, other loving relatives and friends.
