Obituary for Nelda Campbell Howard

Nelda Campbell Howard, age 78 and born January 9, 1939, departed this life peacefully on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at Parkwest Medical Center with her husband and son by her side after succumbing to congestive heart failure.

Nelda was raised on a dairy farm and grew up in the area of Philadelphia and Sweetwater, Tennessee and was a member of Cedar Valley Church. She was a 1958 graduate of Loudon High School and began her career in Knoxville in 1959 first working for a private accounting firm and later The University of Tennessee. Nelda went on to retire after 30 years of dedicated and loyal service to the East Tennessee Natural Gas Company. She spent her remaining years as the primary care-giver to her mother, one of her sisters, and her husband. She will long be remembered by all her family and many friends for her unwavering selflessness and generosity. Nelda was a highly devoted daughter, sister, and wife as well as a very nurturing mother and extremely proud grandmother.

Nelda was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd Campbell and Lula Fowler Campbell, her brothers Glen, Eugene, and Roy Campbell, her sisters Virla Maxine Robinson and Eva Roop, as well as three nephews and three nieces, all of whom she longed to see and often called out to in her final days. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Ray Howard of Lenoir City, her son and daughter-in-law and grandson, Anthony and Nadeane Howard and James W. 'Jack' Howard, all of Columbus, Ohio, her best friend from high school, Margaret Riddle-Heiser, her best friend from the gas company, Marjorie Klepper, and eight nephews and five nieces.

Interment will be at 10AM on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at Loudon County Memorial Gardens.
