As much as she loved to travel, her favorite pastime was attending her grandchildren’s sporting events throughout the years.  If they were playing, she was in the stands or sitting on the sideline wearing the school’s colors, with the team’s name and grandchild’s number proudly displayed.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Jim Campbell; daughters, Theresa Campbell and Lisa Maikranz; brothers, Donald and Jerry Besing; and sister, Norma Wallace.
