OBITUARY ~ OLIVER TURNER CAMPBELL

Oliver T[urner]. CAMPBELL, son of Robert and Charlotte CAMPBELL, was born in Taylor county, Iowa, on March 2, 1884, and departed life at Excelsior Springs, Mo., November 16, 1931, aged 47 years, 8 months and 14 days.

He spent his boyhood days on the farm, and at the age of eleven, was left motherless.

On May 4, 1904, he was married to Clara SICKELS. To this union was born six children Donald and Wilma, of Benton; Maude, of Garden City, Kansas, and Richard and Robert at home, and Mildred, who preceded him in death three years ago.

He was baptized in 1907, and affiliated with the Baptist church at Athelstan, working with the church there as long as he was in that community. He was industrious, upright, a faithful husband, loving father and well-respected citizen.

Besides his companion and five living children, he leaves two brothers, four sisters, five grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends, all of whom have the sincere sympathy of their many friends.

The funeral services were held in the Benton M. E. church Nov. 19, 1931, conducted by Challie E. GRAHAM, assisted by Brothers RHODES and Augustine, and the remains laid to rest in the family lot at Platteville.

The music was furnished by Clyde MILLER, Madge DIXON, Chloris and Ralph GROVES, with Mrs. Rose KEMERLING at the piano. The hymns sung were "Rock of Ages," "The Old Rugged Cross" and "When the Roll is Called Up Yonder." There were a number of very beautiful floral offerings.
