She is also survived by two sisters and three brothers, Nelson Campbell, her twin brother, of Gevena, Indiana, William and John Campbell and Mrs. Kate Boyer, all of Cantrall, and Mrs. Fannie Schenck of Sidney, Ohio.

Mrs. Schenck was a former resident of this place and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Oh, they tell me you are going,
In a distant land to roam;
When parted from your loved ones
You will often dream of home.
In the twilight, sad and lonely,
They will always pray for you;
May God bless and keep you ever
In his pathway good and true.
Now farewell, but not forever,
Though this parting gives me pain;
Yet I know that I shall meet you,
In that land of light again;
Where the streets with gold are shining,
And the angels guard the gate,
I shall stand within the portals
And for you I'll gladly wait.
