Obituary of Brenda Margaret Campbell

Brenda Margaret Campbell, Age 63, Churchville, Pictou County It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Brenda Margaret Campbell. Brenda passed away peacefully at home in the arms of her loving husband D.J. on August 26, 2020 after a courageous seven-year battle with cancer two days after their 36th wedding anniversary. She was born in Island East River, Pictou County in 1957 after which the family moved to Riverton, Pictou County. Most of her working career was with the RCMP, first at Halifax Headquarters Drug Section as secretary and retiring from the RCMP detachment in Stellarton as Detachment Clerk. Brenda’s great love was quilting, she was a past president of the Northumberland Quilt Guild and her quilting buddies were like sisters to her. Brenda’s sewing creations were works of art, family and friends were delighted to receive one of her pieces of work. Brenda also loved her golf where she truly enjoyed playing and socializing with her golf friends. Brenda had a wonderful and dear circle of friends. Over the years she and D.J. travelled the world experiencing many unique countries and their cultures. She lived in the heart of her family hosting years of holiday dinners and family gatherings. She was an incredibly talented cook and baker. Brenda is survived by her husband D.J., son Trevor (Cara) New Glasgow, special grandchildren, Bailey, Halifax, Lauren and Carson, New Glasgow, sisters, Heather (late Ron) MacKinnon, Stellarton, Jane (Don) Curry, Atlin, B.C., Catherine MacRae, Truro, brothers Ian (Gail MacDougall) MacRae Bridgewater, Brian (Wendy)MacRae, Braeshore, David (Arlene)MacRae, Lyons Brook, Peter (Vaneta Macleod)MacRae, Stellarton.

Our family was most fortunate to have had the outstanding care and support of Dr. Mary MacNeil Oncologist, Capital Health and Dr Anne Kwasnik, Dr Gerald Farrell and Rhonda Langille of the Aberdeen Hospital Palliative Care Unit who guided Brenda’s challenging journey with compassion and skill.
