Carol (Edith) Campbell

Died: Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Age: 80
of Ortonville died Oct. 16, 2013.

Edith was born Oct. 2, 1933. She is survived by her daughter, Pamela Campbell, and son-in-law, Steve Koslowski; sisters, Marge Anglebrandt and Peggy (Jack) Vanderstel; and many nieces and nephews. She had many wonderful friends and four special women that she considered her “adopted” daughters: Robin Elkus, Marie Kibbe, Gail Ward and Susan Wills.

Edith was a remarkable woman and an inspiration to many. Although she suffered with many serious illnesses for the past 40+ years, her strong will and faith led to many “miraculous” recoveries. She was a radiant light and a mother to everyone. Edith loved people and her warmth, love and optimistic outlook on life touched all those who met her. She enjoyed dining out with friends, watching the Food Network and HGTV, reading, studying the Bible and shopping.

For her last wishes, she said, “I don’t want any service, cards or flowers. I just want people to be nicer to one another. I want people to ‘pay it forward.’ If anyone wants to do something special in memory of me, ask them to call a friend, comfort someone in need, be kind to animals, make a donation to a favorite charity enjoy life, or have fun.”

She will be missed by her family and huge circle of friends.
