Tribute

Bunny Campbell

Beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Bunny Campbell, passed away peacefully at Lady Minto extended care on July 8th at the age of 99.

Loved by everybody she was the adopted mother of many of our friends and was known by the younger generation as Nangy. She had a kind, loving and thoughtful nature and always knew how to find the fun in everything. One of her famous remarks, on seeing a young man mooning from a bus, was “Ahh, the sights you see in the spring…” She will be remembered for her wit, her infamous rhubarb and orange pie, her wonderful lamb stew, her “square meat and tulip buns” picnics and her sunken, fudge-filled-in-desperation cake. And for flinging a spoonful of ice cream and fruit salad at her daughter, Avril, as she said “because she knew I wouldn’t.”

Bunny was born in Sorrento, BC and lived on an apple farm on the Shuswap Lake with horses, sheep and dogs, where she attended a one-room schoolhouse. Her family packed up for England as war broke out and lived for a while in a railway carriage. She worked at a chicken farm, married an Air Force pilot and had twin girls, Michelle and Roberta (both predeceased). After the war she and Bob Campbell moved back to Canada, where she had Dawn (also predeceased), Avril and Adrienne (Rennie). She showed great resilience throughout a life that wasn’t always easy or happy.

Survived by two daughters, Rennie Robson and Avril Kirby, Bunny had three grandchildren, Chloe Gill (Ethan), Ferris Robson (deceased, survived by his wife Lisa), Brita Lavergne (Tom) and two great grandchildren, Malakai Robson and Norah Lavergne. She will be missed and loved forever by us all.

We would like to thank the nurses and care aides at Lady Minto for all the love and kindness they showed Bunny. They welcomed us (Rennie, Avril and Chloe) into the hospital over Bunny’s last few days, made her comfortable and looked after her like family. We appreciate you all and are happy she was in your care at the end.
