From the Central Union, Westfield, Wisconsin, June 10, 1921
The intimate friends and the whole community were much saddened when it became known that Newton Campbell had passed to the life beyond on Wednesday evening, June 8, 1921, after an illness of several months for which medical skill could accomplish nothing. He was the second son of J.H. and Helen Campbell, was born in the town of Westfield, Wis., Sept. 15, 1853, and departed this life at his home near Lawrence at the age of 67 years, 8 months, and 24 days. His school days and youth were spent at this old farm home and on Dec. 20, 1885, he was united in marriage to Miss Lena Kratky of Spring Bluff, Wis.
This couple began and continued their married life at this same home until the time of Mr. Campbell's demise. This union was blessed with four children, Edith who preceded her father to her heavenly home in the fall of 1900 at the age of eleven years, Clara, Darwin and Grace.
His removal leaves a vacancy in the hearts of many and an empty spot in the family circle. A long life was not his but the good influence of his daily life will be greatly missed by those whose pleasure it was to call him husband, father, neighbor, friend.
To mourn his loss he leaves a most devoted wife, three children, two grandchildren, four sisters, Mrs. E. Chesebro of Coloma, Mrs. James Long of Westfield, Mrs. Andrew Hesler of Adams and Mrs. August Miller of Westfield; one brother Alfred of Westfield; and numerous other sorrowing relatives and friends.
His life was as an open book as friends and acquaintances can testify, and thruout all his dealings with mankind his faithfulness and integrity of character were unquestionable.
The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful, the casket being almost entirely concealed in a mantle of flowers. Among the out of town people present were Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Behlendorf of Oshkosh, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Kratky of West Concord, Minnesota, Mrs. Julia Herbst and Mrs. Clara Shaw of Milwaukee, and Mrs. Eva Martin and daughter Jessie of Berlin. Comforting words were spoken by Rev. C. A. Adams of Buffalo after which a large concourse of friends and relatives followed the remains to Riverside Cemetery where all that was mortal of Newton Campbell was laid to rest.
