Sept. 13, 1946 – Sept. 28, 2009
It is with great sadness that on September 28, 2009 we announce the passing of Sandy Campbell. She leaves her husband of 44 years Gary Campbell, their children: Carrie (Gary) Martindale, Keith Campbell and Corey Campbell; granddaughters Rianna and Kristen Martindale, all residing in Hope; her father Jack Goldie (Port Alberni) and sister Val Adams (Tofino). Sandi is predeceased by her mother Audrey Goldie.
Sandy was born and grew up in Port Alberni, BC. She met Gary, got married and raised their family in Hope, then they moved to Ucluelet to open Porky’s Restaurant. Gary and Sandy then moved to Prince George and have resided there for many years. In every place they lived they made great friends who will miss her deeply.
Sandy is a great friend to everyone who knew her, an outstanding mother to her children and their friends who adopted her as their own. You could always have lunch at “Mrs. Campbell’s” house. Grandma to her own grandchildren and always up to a tea party with any of her friend’s children or grandchildren. To her husband Gary she was his other half, his fishing buddy, his best friend.
Sandy had a brief but courageous battle with cancer and complications following surgery in Prince George.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 344 Fort St. Hope, BC on Saturday, October 3, 2009 at 2:00 pm.
