OBITUARY ~ GARLAND "GLENN" CAMPBELL

Garland Glenn CAMPBELL, third son of William Clinton and Mabel Lenore (EASTIN) CAMPBELL, came into this world on the spring day of April 24, 1916 and departed this life on November 11, 2007 at the Mount Ayr Health Care Center.

He grew up on a ranch in Yuma county, Colorado near the little town of Mildred, which was named after Glenn's aunt Mildred, who died at an early age. As a young boy, when not attending school, he was out on the range on his horse tending to the cattle. Glenn loved being out of doors and in his spare time made a game out of teasing the big bulls in the herd. His little horse seemd to enjoy the sport as much as he and knew exactly when it was time to sprint out of reach as the big bull charged.

When Glenn did attend classes in the one-room schoolhouse, he was accompanied by two brothers, Kenneth and Nick, and two sisters, Corrine and Phyllis. Glenn was nearly 20 and teaching school in Iowa when he attended a school box supper and met the woman he decided he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Her name was Helen Lucille MANCHESTER. That day he bid on, and won, her box supper and spent the rest of the evening getting to know her. They were married two years later on July 6, 1938.

Glenn and Helen brought four children into this world, Gary Lee, who lives in Leon, Iowa with wife Jean, Sheryl Ann, who lives in Dexter, Minnesota with husband Robert SMITH, Dennis Glenn, who lives in Kellerton, Iowa, and Susan Diane, who lives in Urbandale, Iowa with husband Gerald SCHAEFER.

Glenn loved his family and was especially proud of his grandchildren: Rodney RICHARSON and wife Cindy, Robin and husband Tom HOUSH, Rose and husband Lathum SAXTON, Rachele and husband Danny JONES, Ryan RICHARDSON, Russell RICHARDSON and friend Jessica ERICSON, Robyne and husband Dusty STEPHENS, Ranea and husband Randy PETERSEN, Brian CAMPBELL, Shaun CAMPBELL and wife Caroline, Derald SCHAEFER and wife Brenda, Dana and husband Warren EVANS and Danette and husband Richard HOFFMAN. He was equally proud of his 32 great-grandchildren. Also surviving are his sisters, Phyllis and husband Pete DANIELS; sister-in-law, Georgia CAMPBELL; nieces and nephews.

Glenn loved children so much that he taught school, starting in a one-room schoolhouse in Decatur county, for 40 plus years. He spent many summer hours organizing and facilitating afternoon softball games and various summer school campouts at Fife's Grove near Mount Ayr.

Glenn not only taught, he farmed on his "off-hours" putting in long hours choring in the field. He also took night classes to complete his college education. In between all of this, he found time to participate in numerous school organizations such as: NEA, ISEA and student council, just to name a few.

Glenn was preceded in death by his father, Will; mother, Mabel; brothers, Kenneth, Nick and Dorn; sister, Corrine and her husband Bud HAMAKER; daughter-in-law, Donna CAMPBELL; grandson, Randy RICHARDSON; great-granddaughter, Kelsey Ann STEPHENS; parents-in-law, Susie Roleath and Charley Leroy MANCHESTER; sister and brother-in-law, Margurita and Joe DOBSON and sister and brother-in-law, Rowena and Stan MELOS.

Services were held at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr on Friday, November 16, 2007, at 1:30 p.m. with Rev. Rick HAWKINS officiating. Musicians were Jane BUCK and Frank HUDSON.

Casket bearers were Dusty STEPHENS, Randy PETERSON, Derald SCHAEFER, Warren EVANS, Brian CAMPBELL, Richard HOFFMAN and Shaun CAMPBELL.

Glenn was laid at rest in the Leon Cemetery, Leon.
