Sarah "Sallie" Gilbert Campbell
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 24, 1887
Giles County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May, 1985
Alabama, USA

This is the grave of my great Aunt Sallie. We do not know the exact date of her death, but it was either in May or June of 1985. Elderly family members say that she is buried near Bear Bryant in Elmwood Cemetery. I've heard she is "next to" him and also "across a pathway" from him.

Aunt Sallie was born April 24, 1887, and on her 98th birthday in a nursing home was "happy and healthy." She started having a series of small strokes a week to ten days later and died. A card sent by her daughter-in-law Frances May Campbell to my aunt in Ohio was dated June 15th and gave details on Aunt Sallie's funeral, so she died before then.

Aunt Sallie had two sons, Tazwell Jefferson and Gilbert W. Campbell. Both died without children. She is buried in a May-Gilbert plot near her son TJ and his in-laws. Her husband Smith Campbell died in 1942 and is buried in Prospect Cemetery in Giles County, TN near Sallie's parents (my great grandparents.) I'm not sure why as he died in Birmingham also based on what I've heard.

Aunt Sallie sold "Rawleigh" products.
