Joyous and Jovial ... On Tuesday, October 22, 2019, heaven received a special little jingle ---LYDIA MARGARET CAMPBELL BOHN. Lydia was born on July 28, 1915, in Shelbyville, to Bessie and Guy Campbell. Lydia was the "apple of her daddy's eye." Anyone and everyone who knew sweet Lydia, knew how much she loved music. In 1937, Lydia graduated from De Pauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and Minor in English. She loved teaching children and her career took her traveling to different small county schools. Lydia would teach school all day and then come home and teach piano lessons in the afternoon. Early in her teaching days at Petersville School, Lydia made $6.00 for a half a day of teaching, but a least it had an indoor facility. In 1951, Lydia married the love of her life, Martin Henry Bohn. Together they raised two beautiful children, Jack Campbell Bohn and Susan Jane Bohn. Martin and Lydia shared 55 years of pure wedding bliss. Lydia and Martin were very active in the music ministry at First Christian Church in Columbus. A cherished wife and mother and a treasured friend to many, Lydia was a true inspiration. She had a joy for life. Her radiant smile, profound patience, positive attitude and genuine good will be remembered. A gracious lady whose gentleness and spirit of kindness will be a lasting blessing to many. Little Lydia loved chocolate and she was the "perfect" poet. Lydia was preceded in death by her loving husband, Martin, in August 2006. She is survived by her son, Jack Bohn and a daughter, Susan Bohn; two granddaughters, Sarah Beth and Phillip Watkins and Stephanie Brooke Ross; and six great-grandchildren, Jackson Leith, Pressley Hope, Oliver Henry and Emerson Phillip (Watkins) and Canton Ross and Chapman Ross (May). All services with be held at Jewell - Rittman Family Funeral Home in Columbus on Tuesday, October 29th. The family will be welcoming visitors from 10:00 a.m. until noon with the funeral service beginning at noon. In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions to be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana in memory of Lydia Bohn. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the wonderful care Lydia received during her tenure at Miller's Merry Manor.
