EDITH M. CAMPBELL, 87, of Sidney, passed away at 11:10 P.M. Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at her residence.  She was born on September 26, 1931 in Parkers Lake, Kentucky, the daughter of the late Cornelius and Sarah (Morrow) Tucker. On June 21, 1952 she married Arnold D. Campbell, who preceded her in death in 2006.
Edith is survived by two brothers, Eli Tucker of Revlo, KY, Narvil L. (Charlene) Tucker of Sidney; three sisters, Frona Standley of Raytown, MO, Charity M. Smith of Quincy, and Regina (Albert) Saunders of Sidney; special nephew, Norman (Christine) Lewis of Aurora, IL; and numerous other nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by two brothers, Coy and Jimmie Tucker; and two sisters, Ethel Long and MaryAnn Tharp.

Edith worked for the former Copeland Corporation for more than 43 years, retiring on September 27, 1993.  She was a member of First Baptist Church in Sidney. Edith loved baking and cooking, sewing and making quilts for her family and friends.  She also enjoyed going on vacations but was always ready to get back to her own home. Even though Edith had a hard life growing up in Kentucky, her and her late husband Arnold never hesitated taking in her four youngest brothers and sisters in 1954 and raising them like they were their own children.
