Edith P. Campbell, 89 of Valparaiso, passed away Wednesday, May 23, 2018.

She was born September 22, 1928, in Glassport, PA, to John and Betsy (Fox) Pilling.

Edith made her career as a waitress at Wellman’s and the Valparaiso Country Club for many years. Her love of swimming dictated the purchase of a home on Flint Lake and she swam well into her 80’s. Snowmobiling with her husband was a joy they shared for 40 years.

On January 16, 1948, in Winchester, West Virginia, Edith married Leroy Campbell, who survives, along with sons Douglas Campbell (Mary Ann) of Newnan, GA, and Duane Campbell (Judy) of Lake City, FL; grandchildren Joanne Tidwell, Michael Campbell, Karen Jean White, and Diane Sweet; and great-grandchildren, Emma and Lily Tidwell.

She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Alfred Pilling and Doris Smith.

A visitation will be held Tuesday from 9:30 -- 10:30 a.m. at First United Methodist Church, 103 Franklin St., Valparaiso, with funeral service beginning at 10:30 a.m. and entombment to follow at Graceland Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to the church.
