Obituary of Barbara Joan Campbell
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Barbara Campbell, loving wife of 67 years to Bill Campbell, on Tuesday, July 27, 2021. Born November 5, 1933, in Saint John, she was a daughter of the late Louis Richard and Catherine Queen (Weir) Walsh.
As the youngest of twelve in the North End of Saint John, she was a competitive speed skater, just like her older and dearest brother Johnny. She later completed her studies at Mount Carmel Academy with her business certificate and went out into the workforce at Willett Foods. She later met her loving husband Billy and started her family in Quispamsis. She was a devout Catholic whose faith led her to volunteer at the United Church Women’s group. She was often found out in her gardens or by the pool with her grandchildren, cooking many family dinners with crib games to follow. Barb was always excited for a gathering and hosted many parties on the Old Hampton Road.
In addition to her husband, Bill, Barbara is survived by her son, Mike Campbell (Mona); daughters: Karen Michels (Stephen), Brenda Koval, and Patti MacDonald (Andrew); grandchildren: Kate Michels, Jessica Michels, Victoria Crilley, Amanda Campbell, Elaina Campbell, Sara Koval, and Joseph Koval, and six great grandchildren.
Barbara fought cancer in her last days with her husband by her side. She was the last of the Walsh children surviving from Harrison Street.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road, Quispamsis(849-2119). Visitation will take place on Monday, August 2, 2021, from 2 to 4pm and 6 to 8pm. Her funeral will take place on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at 10am at St. Mark’s Church in Quispamsis.
