Mrs. Campbell was a loving and thoroughly devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a longtime resident of Gadsden and was retired after 25 years service with Goodyear. She was a proud member of Local No. 12 and an old school, Roosevelt Democrat. Mrs. Campbell was deeply devoted to all her family and friends, providing guidance and support to all, especially her younger relatives. She greatly enjoyed cooking for her family and friends and had a special gift for baking. In earlier years, she often opened her home to many of her sons' schoolmates and friends who to this day comment about her delicious desserts. Mrs. Campbell was a member of Paden Baptist Church and was preceded in death by her parents, Clide Seabolt and Bessie Lee Ragan; and husband of 62 years, Henry Rudolph Campbell.
