The Maury County native was reared on Due Lane, the daughter of the late Joe Pillow Due and Annie Gertrude Estes Due. She attended McDowell Elementary School and graduated from Columbia Central High School. She was married Dec. 7, 1941, at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church to the late James M. "Jeep" Campbell, Sr. As the wedding couple exited the church following the ceremony, the announcement was made of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Mr. Campbell, well-known Maury County businessman, died Dec. 6, 1978.
Mrs. Campbell was very active in all aspects of her church. The children and youth all knew her affectionately as "Nana."

After Mrs. Ewing's death, she continued to cheer for the teams at games. She was also an avid fan of the Columbia Central High School games and always followed the Columbia State softball team, coached by her son, Eddie.
