Carole Anne Campbell of Ogilvie passed away on Saturday, November 2, 2013. She was 76 years old.
Carole was born on June 28, 1937 in Maple Ridge Township of Isanti County. She lived on a farm in Southfork Township of Kanabec County and attended Ogilvie School, graduating in 1955.
She was united in marriage to James Campbell on August 13, 1955. They were blessed with four children, nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Carole worked at a variety of jobs, but she considered her primary job to be caring for their home and raising their children. Throughout her life, she could be found supporting and encouraging her children and grandchildren at their many activities. In her later life, she delighted in spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There was always room on her lap for any of the little ones.
Another great interest for hers was softball. As a younger woman, Carole enjoyed playing and she continued her involvement later as chief cheerleader and scorekeeper for the many teams on which Jim, her children and grandchildren played.
Carole was preceded in death by her husband, James Campbell; and her parents, Isabel Skogman Paris and James Paris.
She is survived by her four children and their spouses: Steve (Sally) Campbell of Cumming, Ga., Tim (Victoria) Campbell of Pine City, Mn., Vicki (Denzil) Whittlef of Crown, Mn., and Sue Campbell of Ogilvie; nine grandchildren: Jessica, Dana, Nikolaus, James, Natalie, Dustin, Cassandra, Gabriel and Mike; eight great-grandchildren; brother-in-laws: Bill (Doris) Campbell, Louie (Judy) Campbell, Dennis (Vi) Rowley; sister-in-law, Helen Campbell; nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends.
We will miss her presence in our lives. Carole will be remembered for her devotion to her family, her courage, strong determination and stubborn insistence on being right. Most of all, our memories will highlight the love she shared with us.
