Delores Campbell, age 79, of Erhard passed away June 21 at her home. Delores was born the fourth of eight children to Walter and Emily Weis on October 20, 1942 in Mora, MN.

She graduated as Valedictorian from Pine City High School in 1960, attended three years of college at Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Moorhead State University.

In 1963, she married Frank Dale Campbell. She worked at the University of Minnesota while Dale was in graduate school. Between 1964 and 1970 four sons were born: Frank Walter, Paul Sandor, Will Dale, and Andrew Martin.

In 1966, Delores and Dale moved to Fergus Falls and in 1989 they moved to Heilberger Lake near Erhard. She was a stay-at-home mother for 15 years while her children were growing up.

For 25 years she worked spring weekends at Wildwood Gardens in Erhard. She also grew the vegetables for sale at Wildwood.

Delores enjoyed gardening. She was a University of Minnesota Master Gardener for 17 years and a member of the Fergus Falls area Garden Club. She liked playing bridge, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, sudoku, sewing and reading. She especially loved the weeks she and her sisters would spend together annually at their various homes.
