Born on April 12th, 1940, in Marshalltown, she was the eldest of four children born to John Lloyd and Mabel Janet (Gaunt) Campbell. She graduated from the LeGrand High School in 1958, and soon attended Secretarial School in Omaha.

She began her working career at Security Bank in Marshalltown for one year and then for over 35 faithful years at Fisher Controls as a typist.

Mary was a member of the Ferguson Bible Church- teaching Sunday school and serving as Sunday school treasurer for many years, and was in charge of typing the bulletins. There was never a chocolate she did not like (she did not discriminate)- dark chocolate, chocolate cookies, chocolate brownies, chocolate pie, etc. Just no nuts! They were all loved by Mary! She enjoyed reading, visits with her nieces and nephews (all she adored) and traveling. She traveled to California, Montana, Texas and Las Vegas to see her favorite- Elvis!

Left to cherish her memory are her siblings: Don (Connie) Campbell, of Montour, Marge Good, of Marshalltown and Bev (Dennis) DeVault, of Council Bluffs, IA; nieces and nephews: Terri (Gregg) Breeze, John Campbell, Jim Campbell, Julie (Brock Livingston) Good, Jeri (Steve) Garlich, Josh (Amy) Good, David (Angela Walker) DeVault and Dana (Howie) Zimmerman; 14 great nieces and nephews and 5 great-great nieces and nephews.

Preceding her in death were her parents and brother-in-law, Lou Good.
