Born on August 25, 1929,to Frederic and Hilda (Meyne) Krumwiede in the pastoral landscapes of rural Waverly, Iowa, Dorothy was a cherished soul who lived a life dedicated to caring for others, both in her professional and personal realms.

Dorothy was a proud graduate of Waverly High School, where she established the foundation for her nurturing spirit. She furthered her education by earning a Nursing Certification from Iowa Lutheran in Des Moines, which paved the way for her fulfilling career as an OB Nurse. Dorothy’s professional journey began at Allen Hospital, where she served for five years before continuing her vocation at Floyd County Medical Center until her well-deserved retirement. Her gentle touch and comforting presence were a blessing to countless families during one of the most memorable moments of their lives.

Beyond her professional contributions, Dorothy was actively involved in her community. She was a valued member of the Nashua Women’s Club, participated in church circles, contributed her time to Meals on Wheels, and volunteered at the local elementary school. Her commitment to service was an inspiration to all who knew her.

Dorothy’s interests were a reflection of her warm and nurturing character. An avid reader, she found joy in the pages of fiction books and historical fiction, traveling through time and tales with every turn of the page. Her hands were rarely idle, as she loved to embroider, creating beautiful pieces that were as much a testament to her patience as to her skill. Dorothy’s culinary prowess was legendary, especially her potato salad—a dish she made from memory with a ‘little bit of this and a little bit of that,’ which became a much-anticipated treat at family gatherings.

Family was the cornerstone of Dorothy’s world. She was deeply involved with her loved ones, hosting her grandchildren with open arms and hearts. Dorothy’s legacy of love is carried on by her daughters, Marilyn Heitz and Karen Adams, who remember her as a steadfast presence, especially during times of loss and hardship. Her husband, Craig Campbell, predeceased her, but the partnership they shared continues to resonate through the stories and memories cherished by those who were fortunate to have felt their collective warmth.

Dorothy is survived by her daughters: Marilyn (Randy) Heitz of Charles City and Karen (Randy) Adams of Marion; brother Frederic (Phyllis) Krumwiede of Waverly; sister Elaine Dove of Janesville; sister-in-law Alice Krumwiede of Charles City; grandchildren: Jessica (Stuart) Hall, Alex (Roshni) Heitz, Amy Heitz, Ryan (Kathryn) Veldhuizen, Nathan (Kayte) Veldhuizen, and Rebekah (Alan) Carter; and 12 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents Frederic and Hilda (Meyne) Krumwiede; husband Craig Campbell; son James Campbell; son-in-law Rod Veldhuizen; brothers: Richard and Charles Krumwiede; brother-in-law Bill Dove and brother-in-law Howard Campbell; and sister-in-law Margaret Campbell.
