Ellen Mae Campbell passed away June 23, 2013. She was 90.

A service will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 2. A eulogy will be given by cousin Beverly Russell. Service conducted by Grass Valley Seventh-day Adventist Pastor Tim McMillen. She will be buried at Penn Valley Cemetery.

A 1992 Grass Valley resident, she was an avid animal and nature lover. Ellen had several bird feeders at her lovely 2-acre home filled with restful, peaceful, trees. She would buy more than 100 pounds of seed a month.

She was also a Ford automobile lover and could diagnose any auto issues faster than most mechanics with her wry sense of humor.

She attended Inglewood SDA Grade School, Lynwood Academy and Pacific Union College. It took her many years to complete her BA degree as she put herself through college.

Ellen retired at Vallejo City Unified School District. In her classroom, she taught science by having live animals, including mice, snakes, fish and guinea pigs. Prior to Vallejo District, she taught for SDA Schools in Southern and Northern California, including Burlingame.

She is survived by her nieces, Marie Campbell Morgan of Foster City, Calif., Judy Turner of Oregon City, Ore., and Mary Campbell of Vancouver, Wash.; nephew Dr. Richard (Elina) Campbell of Lake Placid, Fla; numerous great-grand nieces and nephews; and many dear cousins.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Grass Valley SDA Church Pathfinders, Golden Empire Humane Society or your choice.
