On January 21, 2021, we lost a wonderful lady and heaven gained a beautiful angel. The wife of musician, Marine and Korean War Veteran, Don Campbell. Elma Ray Campbell went home to be with our Lord and Saviour.
Mother of six, Trula Campbell, Donna Campbell, Mary Campbell Saunders, David Campbell, Elaine Campbell Sells and Sarah Campbell-Alexander; grandmother of six, Karen Aiken, Stephen Large, Jonathan Campbell, Thomas Calandros, Austin Campbell-Alexander and Teagan Alexander; great grandmother of four, Garrett Hashimoto, Raylin Dykins, Katie Calandros, and Corey Calandros; great-great grandmother of one, Raeden Hashimoto; and her siblings, Mary Jane Vance and John Robert Ray. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Elma was preceded in death by her husband, Don; daughters, Trula Campbell and Donna Campbell; her twin sister, Thelma Maynard; and brother, Raymond Ray.
The family would like to give a special thank you to her niece, Melinda Loveday, for taking our mother to church, shopping and so much more. Also, to her granddaughter, Karen Aiken, for always hosting our gatherings and providing excellent food. The family wishes to thank nurse Kelsey at Franklin Woods ICU for going above and beyond her duties to make our mother as comfortable as possible and for helping our family get through this difficult time.
There will be a private graveside service officiated by Dr. Allen Davis of Piney Flats First Baptist Church, at Mountain View Cemetery on Wednesday, January 27, 2021. The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a memorial contribution to Piney Flats First Baptist Church, 100 Cherry Road, Piney Flats, TN 37686.
