Tory Tall

Celebrating Tory Tall's Wonderful Life and A Race Well Run.

Frances Victoria "Tory" Campbell Tall passed this life, peacefully, on April 12, 2018. The daughter of the late Caroline and George Campbell, Tory was born on December 30, 1967 in Greenville County, South Carolina and raised in Richmond, Virginia.     

A graduate of Hood College in Frederick Maryland, Tory was always passionate about the Arts. Following her studies, Tory joined the staffs at Seattle's Bumpershoot Festival and Charleston's Spoleto Festival. Frequently a visitor with retired grandparents, in Briarcliffe Acres, Tory made Myrtle Beach her own home in 1994.  Tory served, for many years, as executive director of the Friendship House charity which operated a medical clinic, preschool and thrift shop in our Racepath community. The medical clinic, now relocated to Conway, continues.      

A talented writer, Tory created many fans with her articles about local residents, local events and restaurants, which appeared in the Sun News and other publications.  Most recently, Tory managed her husband's law office, and pursued graduate studies at Coastal Carolina University. Tory served on the Myrtle Beach Cultural Arts Advisory Committee, and was an active supporter of the Claire Chapin Epps Family YMCA.    

Surviving Tory are her husband, Cliff, her stepson, Wyatt, Sisters - Carolyn "Terri" MacDonald and Jenny Campbell, Brothers - David MacDonald and William MacDonald, with many nieces, nephews and their families. Also surviving are Aunts and Uncle, Kendall Newman, Janice Knapp and Ralph Campbell, with their several children and families.      

Tory's many friends and admirers are numerous enough to fill a good-sized theatre, like the ones Tory and Cliff often traveled to, for concerts of "Americana" and "New Grass" music. The Talls met at dinner, years ago, while restaurant owner, Jeff Roberts, played recordings of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.      

Tory's family will welcome visitors on Monday April 16, 2018 between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm at the McMillan Small funeral home.  Those wishing to send a remembrance are encouraged to consider contributions for the Friendship Medical Clinic and Pharmacy – Conway, South Carolina and the Athenaeum Press (student publishing project) at Coastal Carolina University.

Please accept my sincere condolence. May you find comfort through the Word of God. “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces…” Isa 25:8. This promise will be accomplished by means of God’s Kingdom or government with His son Jesus Christ ruling as king (Dan 2:44).
