JEWELL MILES CAMPBELL went to be with the Lord, and tend his azaleas on Nov. 19, 2010. She was born Jan. 3, 1915. The azaleas in Jewell's yard were as beautiful as the Amen Corner at Augusta. Her modest home was always immaculate and you would have thought it was a Disney property the way she kept it painted and refurbished during the 65 years she lived on Monroe Street. Jewell was married to Earl Campbell, the love of her life, until she lost him to lung cancer in 1971. Their surviving children are Guy Earl Campbell and his wife, Mary Ann, of Little Rock and Sylvia Disheroon of Hot Springs. Mrs. Campbell has two surviving grandsons, Greg Campbell and his wife Cheryl of Little Rock and Copeland Disheroon and his wife Kristi of Baton Rouge, La. Her surviving step-grandson is John Campbell and his wife Jennifer, who live in Germantown, Tenn. with their children Whitney Ziegenhorn and Walker Antonio Campbell. Her exchange-student grandson from Cali, Colombia, Mario Arbelaez and his wife Lucero live in Land O'Lakes, Fla. with their children Sebastian and Catalina. The apples of Jewell's eyes were her four great-grandchildren that she regularly told, "I love you to pieces." They are Geoffrey Campbell and Whitney Campbell of Little Rock and Dylan Disheroon and Hannah Disheroon of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Jewell is also survived by her sister, Dorothy "Dot" Karnes, along with nieces and nephews, their spouses and grand nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lutie Guy and Eva Miles; a brother, Ellis Miles; a sister, Irene Stanberry; and son-in-law Buddy Disheroon. Jewell traveled a great deal the later part of her life with her traveling friend, now deceased, Buford Spillyards. She attended Immanuel Baptist Church and enjoyed her Sunday school class. Thank you Kay Ladd. Jewell liked garden club and attended bridge club mainly for the food. Her beautiful head of white hair, always coiffed, and immaculate dress were Jewell's trademarks. Thank you Kathy Robertson of Kavanaugh Hair Salon. Mrs. Earl Campbell took pride in the company her husband founded, Arkansas Trailer Manufacturing Company. She was one of four generations still working there until last year. Her son Guy, grandson Greg, and great grandson, Geoffrey, continue the family tradition. Her heart was broken last year when Arkansas Trailer lost their shop manager and her friend, Bill Parker, to cancer. If you've seen the recent commercial for Chenal Heights Assisted Living Center on television featuring Jewell and Guy, his testimonial speaks to our appreciation of Rosanne Boyd, her current staff, and the residents. The family also thanks Hospice Homecare for their sensitivity and kindnesses. A visitation will be held at Roller Chenal Funeral Home (501)224-8300, Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The service will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the funeral home, followed by interment at Pinecrest Memorial Park.
