Lorraine Minnie Baldwin Campbell, age 78, of Taylorsville passed away on Friday, February 5, 2021 at Trinity Ridge in Catawba County. She was born on January 12, 1943 the daughter of the late Jessie Clyde and Thelma Combs Baldwin. Before retirement, Lorraine worked in the Deli Department at Food Lion in Taylorsville for fifteen years. She was a member of Reformation Lutheran Church, where she loved teaching Sunday School. She was an excellent cook and never wanted anyone to go unfed, including pets. Lorraine was strong, caring, kind and had a smile that would light up the room. She loved to laugh and always kept a positive attitude towards everyone. Always giving them a chance. Even if you did not know her somehow, she always knew you for years. She will be greatly missed but will forever be in our hearts. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of fifty-five years Harry Dillard Campbell; son Sidney Campbell; and three brothers.
Those left to cherish her memory include her sons Doug Campbell (Sharon) and Raymond Campbell of Taylorsville; daughter Amanda Ventura (Anthony) of Bethlehem; sisters Eula Gibson of Pennsauken, NJ and Omagay Kennedy of Oakridge, TN; grandchildren Kayleigh Sheehy (Ben), Nathan Campbell (Beckey), Paula Campbell, Anna Ventura, and Anthony Joseph (AJ) Ventura; a number of great-grandchildren with one on the way; several nieces and nephews; and special friends Karen Pearson and Paula Shelton.
