We Remember


January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

If we could, we would write this in all CAPS, as this was her typing style we could never change. Stubborn, funny, warm and a devoted dog lover, Joan Purvis Campbell (nee Gordon) passed peacefully away on April 23, 2018. Joan was born in Montreal in 1930 and always called Westmount her hometown.  Holidays spent in Ste. Agathe cemented friendships which lasted her whole life and introduced her to our father, John Fraser Campbell, who passed too soon in 2010 after 51 years of marriage. Joan was proud of the family legacy they created together. She lived a rich, full life, moving to New York, Calgary, Victoria and Kelowna.  With her warm smile, soft touch, receptive ear and biting wit, Joan made friends easily. She was a fantastic and proud Mother and Grandmother and supported us all whole heartedly. She will be missed by all who knew her, especially her children Fraser (Barbara), Gordon (Melissa), Deirdre, and her grandchildren McKenzie, McGregor, Cooper, Haley and Summer. In lieu of donations, Joan would want you to hug your family and your furry friends.
