Peggy J. Campbell

Born: 11/18/1941 Passed:

Peggy J. Campbell, 78, of Malvern, Ohio, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, July 17, 2020 after a courageous 6-month battle with cancer.

Peggy was born November 18, 1941 in Alliance, Ohio to the late Kenneth and Kathleen (Freshley) Baum.  She was a homemaker most of her life and enjoyed spending time with family and tending to her yard and flowers.  She was also well known for her keen sense of humor, famous one-liners, and wit.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her siblings, Kenneth Baum, Nancy Monea, Joan VanCamp, Judy Baum, Terry Baum and infant brother.

She is survived by her loving husband, Joseph; four children, Tammy (Brian) Stamm, Jeffrey (Barb) Burgess, Pamela (Terry) Tarleton and Amy (Todd) Resnick; as well as several step children and numerous grandchildren, with whom she loved with all her heart. She also leaves behind her siblings, Linda Yoder, Patty Schumaker and Tommy Baum.

The family would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Bethany Nursing Home for the wonderful care she received.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations may be made in Peggy’s honor to Bethany Nursing Home 626 34th St. NW, Canton, Ohio 44709. Per Peggy’s request, cremation has taken place. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.  Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family online at
