Campbell, Edwin (10 MAR 1877 - 7 NOV 1944)


Edwin Campbell, son of the late William and Emeline (Riley) Campbell, was born at Chippewa Falls, Wis., on March 10, 1877, and passed away Nov. 7, 1944, at Waukesha, Wis., as he was about to board a train enroute to Minneapolis.  He had attained the age of 67 years, 7 months and 27 days.


When a boy of three years he came with his parents to Humbird (Clark Co., Wis.), where his father entered the lumbering business, being employed by E.D. Carter.  Later the family moved to a farm south of town, remaining a short time, when they moved to a home in this village.


As a young man, Edwin started out for himself, first going to Beloit, where he learned the machinist trade, a profession he later followed in Milwaukee.  For the past twenty-five years he had been employed by the Waukesha Motor Co.


Mr. Campbell was a devoted member of the Christian Science Church.  He leaves to mourn his death, one sister, Mrs. J.C. Johnson of Humbird, four nephews, one niece and a host of friends.


The remains were brought to this village last Thursday night, and burial services were held at the Methodist Church at 3:00 o’clock Friday afternoon.  Rev. Robert W. Sachtjen used as the text of his discourse: "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden."  Musical selections by Mrs. Waters and Mrs. Smith were: "Rock of Ages," "Old Rugged Cross," and "God be with You," with Miss Simons accompanist.  Pallbearers were P.A. Hemmy, Will Ringrose, Geo. Fradenburg, George Mueller, W.E. Waters, and W.A. Fradenburg.  Burial was in the family lot in Mentor Cemetery.


Relatives from away who came to attend the services were a nephew, Hilliard Campbell of La Crosse and Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Brown, cousins from Chippewa Falls.
