Elizabeth (Libby) Graham Campbell

ORANGE — Elizabeth (Libby) Graham Campbell of Orange, Texas, passed away on Saturday, March 02, 2013. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, David Vernon Campbell. She is survived by three daughters, Beth Mathews and husband Leonard, Dana Miller and husband Ken, and Margaret Bell and husband James. She is survived by five grandchildren, Campbell Miller, Travis Bell, Laura Vickers, Julie Westervelt, and Kristi Mathews. She enjoyed her four great grandchildren, Hazel, Justin, Jonathan, and Laura. She was also survived by her sister-in-law, Libba Graham of Georgia, and her brother-in-law, Verle Campbell of Ohio.

Originally from McRae, Georgia, Libby grew up in Georgia and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. She taught school for a short time before marrying Vernon, her soul mate for life, and dedicating her energy and love to raising her three girls.

Libby was very active in the Orange community where she lived for the past sixty-eight years. She was a past board member of Salvation Army, the Leaf and Petal Garden Club, and charter member of AAUW, Orange Chapter. She was especially active and involved in numerous ministries of the First United Methodist Church of Orange.

Libby will best be remembered by those who knew her as a true lady. She cared for and desired to help others in every possible way. She never forgot a friend’s special dates of celebration. None will forget her contagious smile and the joy she brought to everyone’s life. She was the matriarch of her family who embodied constant loyalty and who was a loving, encouraging presence in the lives of her family and friends.

A memorial service will be held at the First United Methodist Church sanctuary on Friday, March 8, at 10:30 a.m. Visitation with the family will be at 9:30 a.m. prior to the service.

Memorial may be sent to the First United Methodist Church of Orange.
