|CATHERINE WHITAKER CAMPBELL
Catherine Whitaker-Campbell, was born may 6, 1893, and deceased May 4, 1962, making her stay on earth
68 years, eleven months, and twenty-eight days. She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizebeth Whitaker.
Early in life she married James Campbell, who has preceded her in death. To this union were born three
children, two of which have preceded her in death. One daughter, Mrs. Spencer Halcomb, who is still living.
She also leaves to mourn her loss, two brothers, Alamander and William Whitaker; four sisters, Mrs. Bertha
Watts, Mrs. Sophia Bradley, Mrs. Nancy Ann Crase, and Mrs. Linda Miller. There are three grandsons,
Charles, James and Johnny Halcomb.
Catherine was not a member of any church here, but according to her testimony and her life, we feel that
her soul is at rest. Several nights ago, she sent for Elder Manus Ison to come to her home and when he arrived
she began to tell him how great things the Lord had done for her, and that she felt there was nothing in her way.
After hearing her relate this good news, Manus asked her if she wanted to join the church. She said, "NO, not
now, but I just wanted you to know that I was all right and was ready to go when my time comes and I wanted
to hear you pray one more time before I died". She said, " I have seen many beautiful scenes", and that she
wanted Manus Ison and Jim Pratt to preach her funeral when she died. She also talked to her sister, Sophia
about how the Lord had removed dark clouds from her and placed her in a beautiful light that shone round about
her. She also told her sister, Bertha that she was working in a beautiful garden of flowers. Then she also
related to her sister, Sophia that she saw a rainbow in the presence of the Lord.
We feel that her life and work shall live on.
