The Campbell "kids"
Doug, Ginny, Susan, Kathy, Anne, Joan, and Allan
We Campbell kids are grateful for the loving support of our parents Douglas and Mary Virginia Campbell. We all agree that we had excellent teachers at Scottsbluff High School from the mid 1950’s through the mid 1970’s. They provided us with an outstanding foundation to succeed in the pursuit of college degrees.
Here is the rundown:
Kathy - 1960 AFS exchange student to the Philippines, Homecoming Queen, leading role in Brigadoon. Jeanie Westervelt and Paul Swanson encouraged her love of music and drama. Kathy married Paul Edelbrock and they have five children and nine grandchildren. She has a master’s degree in education from University of Nebraska and taught at St. Agnes and Bluffs Middle School for many years.
Anne - 1962 We were the first graduating class from the new High School. I was Student Body President and our band was selected to represent Nebraska in John Kennedy’s Inaugural Parade with Ron Becker and Georgine Diers as our band instructors. Ray Frakes was my favorite English teacher. I received my teaching credential from the University of Nebraska. I married John Jones SHS 62’ and we have three children and seven grandchildren. We settled in Petaluma, CA. I taught elementary school until I retired in 2002. I loved providing my students with an atmosphere to grow as learners and explorers of the world around them.
Susan - 1964 Susan’s favorite teachers were Ron Becker who took the Band to the NY World’s Fair, Tom Mihane, Principal, and Darlene Schaff, Home Economics. She married Steve Wilson and they both graduated from the University of Nebraska. They have two children and six grandchildren. Susan became a Licensed Professional Counselor. After living in California for a number of years, they now live in Alabama.
Joan - 1966 Joan’s favorite teacher was Ron Becker. He took the band to the New York World’s Fair. She attended Loretto Heights College in Denver for two years. She married John Campbell and they have five children and 14 grandchildren. Joan is active in her community. She was widowed in 1998 and remarried Terry Foote in 2012.
Douglas - 1968 After High School graduation, Doug attended Regis College and obtained his medical degree in Internal Medicine at the University of Nebraska. Doug and his wife Laurie have four children and seven grandchildren. They live in Sonoma, California, where he has his internal medicine practice.
Allan - 1969 Following graduation, Allan attended the University of Nebraska where he obtained his medical degree in surgery. He married Pam and they have three children and seven grandchildren. After practicing in Omaha for a number of years, he and Pam moved to Bemidji, Minnesota to practice and they now live on Ten Mile Lake, Hackensack, MN.
Ginny - 1973 Ginny is married and has three children and five grandchildren. She earned her nursing degree and lives in Tennessee with her husband Gabe Ojeda. They also have a home on Ten Mile Lake in northern MN.
Julie - 1975 Julie attended Cottey College and obtained her nursing degree from St. Catherine’s in MN. She married John Ringle, and they had 4 daughters. They lived and worked in Bemidji. On December 30, 1993, Julie, Allison, Maggie, and Molly lost their lives in a tragic car accident. Her oldest daughter, Kate, survived. Kate and her husband Patrick McMeekin and their two sons live in Fort Collins. Kate is a nurse practitioner specializing in Women’s Health.
We all cherish our memories of growing up in Scottsbluff. We made lifelong friends and our early school experiences at Longfellow and St. Agnes gave us a wonderful foundation to build our lives on.
Enjoy a lovely fall, Anne Jones.
