My Beautiful Mother.

She was the youngest daughter born to James Martin CAMPBELL and Rosa Pearl MILER.

The name she was given at birth was Eliza Belle (after her two Grandmothers) but she always hated that name, so when she was older she had it legally changed to Ayletha which she thought was a beautiful name. My mother had two older sisters, Allyne Miler and Cleo Berniece. They were close throughout their lifes.

She married my daddy Robert David CAPLE on 3 Jul 1937 in Oklahoma City, OK, in a small service in the backyard of her dear friend whose Father presided over the wedding.

There were three children in our family - Marion, David, and myself, Candice. My Mother was the only child in her family to have children.

She and her family suffered through the Great Depression, like so many others, and to finish high school she lived and worked with a teacher's family for her room and board. During WWII she worked in the Long Beach shipyards. After the war my parents and oldest sister moved to a working dairy farm in Purcell, OK. This my sister called my parents "farming days". When the farm proved too much work for too little money we headed for California where my Father's sisters were living. There my parents bought their first home in Huntington Beach in 1958. Mother eventually opened a beauty shop and my parents remained there until their deaths.

While living in Oklahoma she was an active member of Eastern Star. She also started a Home Economics club which is still going to this day. My parents were lifetime members of First Christian Church. Mother had a beautiful alto singing voice and used it at home and also in our church choir.

Ayletha was a beautiful spirit, a beautiful woman, and a perfect Mother. We love you Momma. May you rest in eternal peace and joy until we meet again.

CAUSE OF DEATH: Alzheimer's and related complications.


- by Canon Henry Scott -Holland -Canon of St Paul's Cathedral, "The King of Terrors", a sermon on death delivered in St Paul's Cathedral on Whitsunday 1910, while the body of King Edward VII was lying in state at Westminster: published in Facts of the Faith, 1919.

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we always enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the ghost of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

There is absolute unbroken continuity

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval

Somewhere very near

Just around the corner

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
