BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Wilma Jean Campbell, 82, of Huntsville, Alabama, passed away on February 27, 2013.
She was born May 8, 1930 to the late Elijah Ewing Warren and Mae Stephens Warren in Meridianville, AL.
She is survived by her husband Cecil Campbell, 86, also of Huntsville and her son and daughter- in-law, Warren and Jan Campbell, of Bowling Green, KY. She is also survived by former daughter-in-law, Peggy Mellies, of Pensacola, FL. She has five surviving siblings, Faye Fuchs, Sue Hawkins, Earl "Clack" Warren, Malcolm "Craw" Warren, and Edward "Chick" Warren. She also has four grandchildren, Shawn, Heather, Jesslyn and Chris and three great-grandsons, Sebastian, Seth and Max.
She was a devout Baptist, attending Brownsboro Baptist Church for many years and was an absolute shining example of a good Christian woman. In high school she was on the Homecoming Court and was a cheerleader, and remained a constant cheerleader for her entire family throughout the years. She worked for many years as an orthodontic assistant.
She was a friend to all God's creatures big and small and has left behind many pleasantly plump squirrels and birds. She was an avid gardener with a green thumb, a wonderful cook, and skillful tennis player with a mean backhand. She never met a person she didn't like, and everyone that knew her, loved her. She was a wonderfully kind woman, and always thought of others first. She was extraordinary and will be missed dearly by all that knew her.
Her family would like to thank Hospice of Bowling Green, KY for the compassionate care that Wilma received during her final days as well as Morningside Retirement Home, where she and Cecil made their home in Bowling Green.
In honor of her memory people may make donations to their church or favorite charity. Visitation will be from 10 am to 12 pm on March 2nd at Valhalla Funeral Home and Memory Gardens with the service to follow.
