Beverly Campbell

Beverly Ann Dinnen-Campbell, 61, was peacefully called to Heaven on February 28, 2017 at Mercy Hospice in Johnston. Per her wishes, her body has been cremated. A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from noon to 3:00 p.m. at The Cub Club
at Principal Park on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

Beverly was born July 31, 1955 in Des Moines to Leo and Glada (Houser) Carroll. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1973. Beverly retired from Mercy Hospital in 2016 where she had worked in the IT Department for 28 years. She had a “Green Thumb” and spent lots of time working outside in her garden. Beverly cherished time spent with her grandchildren.

Beverly was the definition of selflessness and humility. Her passion was her family and she poured her heart and soul into caring for her five boys and ten grandchildren. She and her husband John loved to travel to San Diego, Denver and Seattle for leisure and to spend time with their children and grandchildren.

Beverly was the golden rule. She lived a life of kindness and displayed it with grace.

She will be remembered as a loving compassionate woman who always put others needs before her own and will be missed dearly by her friends and family. Those left to cherish her memory are her loving husband, John Campbell; the boys, Travis (Brandi) Dinnen, and their children, Zach, Alex, Graci, Wade and Drew, Jake (Caroline) Dinnen, and their children, Liam and Natalie, David (Jen) Dinnen, and their children, Taylor and Avery, Michael (Denise) Campbell and their daughter, Madison and Joshua (Sara) Campbell; mother, Glada Carroll; siblings, Phil (Janie) Carroll, Dan Carroll, Tim (Ann) Carroll and Rita (Cliff) Dawson; and a host of extended family and dear friends.

She was preceded in death by her father and her sister, Linda Day.

The family would like to thank Mercy Cancer Center, Brian Freeman, M.D., John Martens, M.D., Chest Infectious Diseases, Daniel Barth, D.O. and most of all, Dona Van Berkum RN, OCN Nurse Navigator.
