Evelyn Lois Campbell was born June 18, 1919, in Sumner, Texas, to C.V. and Georgia Lee (Moore) Parson. She married Ervin Campbell on October 27, 1941, in Tucson, AZ. Evelyn was a member of the Boswell First Baptist Church all of her life, and the Royal Gleeners – her Sunday School Class. She was a devoted wife and mother, a pillar of the community. She devoted her life to caring for her family, especially her only daughter who they discovered had polio at the age of seventeen. Evelyn was a confident to many, and she always had the right words.
