Word has been received of the death of former Greybull resident Marlynn Kay Campbell. Marlynn, 70, died Feb. 3 in Bozeman, Mont.
She was born Feb. 19, 1943, in Sheridan, the daughter of Lynn and Marjorie Severance. She grew up and received her education in Greybull and graduated from Greybull High School.
Marlynn attended Denver Vocational College where she specialized in stenography and secretarial work. She married and the family moved to Bozeman where her husband attended Montana State University and she began working at the Bozeman ASCS office. They had their first child, Todd.
The family moved to Capitol, Mont. where their daughter Kim was born. The family moved to Libby and in 1973 moved to Glasgow where Marlynn went to work for Langen & Langen law offices. She later followed Judge Langen to the Valley County Courthouse to be his secretary. She also worked for Probation Officer George Melikan. After Judge Langen resigned, Marlynn worked at the courthouse as deputy clerk of court until she retired in February 2006.
Marlynn enjoyed garage sales, Bunco, trips to Four Bears casino with good friends and volunteered at the Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament for many years. Marlynn’s positive manner left everyone she met “feeling good.” She will be missed.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Todd and Angela Campbell of Nampa, Idaho; daughter and son-in-law, Kim and Charlie Smith of Bozeman; brother and sister-in-law, Lynn and Sharon Severance of Sheridan; stepmother, Esther Cover of Sheridan; close friend Larry Roberton of Opheim, Mont., and four grandchildren.
Marlynn was cremated. Her ashes will be spread this summer.
