Funeral services for Laura Ethel Hicks Campbell, 100, of Wylie were held Nov. 29, 2010, at First Baptist Church in Wylie. Interment followed at Kreymer Cemetery.
Mrs. Campbell was born Feb. 26, 1910, east of Wylie to Ida Elizabeth Housewright and Alfred Monroe Hicks.
She met Ira Edgar Campbell in 1928. They were married at the age of 19 on Sept. 4, 1929, at the courthouse in Rockwall.  They were married 66 years.
According to her family, Mrs. Campbell was active in First Baptist Church Wylie until her health declined. She taught Sunday school for many years and was involved in the Women’s Ministry and Happy Circle.
She spent most of life working on the farm with her parents and husband, and she also worked at Johnston’s Factory in Wylie. She loved the outdoors and would often be found in the garden or working in her flower beds. 
“She was an exceptional mother and grandmother who always took the time to make each person feel special and loved,” her family said. “She welcomed everyone into her home and would make sure each visitor left with a full stomach and a happy heart.”
Mrs. Campbell was preceded in death by her husband, Ira Edgar Campbell; her son, Jerry Monroe Campbell; her son-in-law, Billy Ray Mills; her mother, father, sister and brothers.
