Marlene P. (Nickol) Whited, 86, of Muncie passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 18, 2021 at Signature Healthcare of Muncie.  Born in Delaware County on Tuesday, November 12, 1935, she was the child of Arthur and Mary Nickol.

On October 20, 1973, Marlene married the love of her life, William Elmo Whited of Jamestown, TN.

She was a dedicated mother to her daughter, JoEllen Campbell, who stayed by her side for her entire life – each helping the other through the journey of life.

Marlene is preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, Elmo Whited, and her brother, Freddy Nickol.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter; JoEllen Campbell; stepdaughter, Melinda Ayers; three sons, Delmar (BobbieJo) Campbell, David Kiger and Larry Kiger; and one step-son, Mike (Tricia) Whited.

Though Marlene loved her husband and children very much, there is no doubt that the true fuel of her life was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she cherished deeply.

No services will be held.  She will be laid to rest beside her husband in Duggan-Smith Linder Cemetery in Jamestown, TN, per her wishes.

The family would like to extend a very special “Thank You” to the staff at Signature Healthcare for their compassionate care and professionalism during this difficult time.
