Tributes for

Campbell, Charlyne

Campbell, Charlyne, 88, of Fullerton, CA, joined her husband, Ted, in heaven on September 6, 2013. Charlyne was born September 5, 1925 in Los Angeles, CA. She grew up in Los Angeles and married her high school sweetheart in 1945. Ted Campbell was in the Navy when they married so they were off to Boston, MA. for a year. Returning to live in California they finally moved their family to Fullerton in 1954 to raise their sons. She was employed by the Bank of America where she was a Teller and later worked in Account Reconciliation. Upon Ted's retirement, they moved to Bishop, CA. and she remained after his passing in 1990. She decided to return to Fullerton in 1999 to be close to her family.

Charlyne was active in Placentia Presbyterian Church for years and spent many volunteer hours there. She especially liked working with the Clothes Closet and Soup Kitchen. She enjoyed traveling to Japan, Holy Lands, China, Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska. Over the years, she and Ted sponsored Exchange Students, Save the Children, and Compassion. She was proud of her Degree in Art from CSUF which she received after her children were grown. Music and Art brought her great joy. Charlyne was an independent, sweet, compassionate, loving person with a unique sense of humor. She had many friendships that have lasted a lifetime. Charlyne had a soft spot for children and enjoyed interacting with them.

Charlyne is survived by sons, Rod and Douglas; daughter-in-law, Pat; grandchildren, Chad (Audra), Tia (Sonny), and Noel; great grandchildren, Devyn, Koby, Payne, and Zayden. Charlyne, known to her family as Grandma Cookie, will be missed by many but especially her family.

A Memorial Service will be held at Placentia Presbyterian Church on September 29, 2013 at 4:00P.M. If you wish to make a donation in her memory, she requested they be made to Placentia Presbyterian Church for either El Sauzal Orphanage or Jon and Christi Grimes Mission Work.
