It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Frances Patricia (Pat) Campbell on October 9, 2020 at Milton District Hospital with her devoted daughter, Colleen, by her side. Pat was born in Toronto on October 14, 1924. She recalled living through the Depression and World War II so was prepared to carry on during the COVID-19 pandemic and would have done so if not for the unfortunate fall that ended her long life.

Pat is survived by her son Don (Ghazal), her son Steve (Noreen), and her daughter Colleen (Dave). She was a beloved “Grandma” to her grandchildren: Lori, Billy, Nikki, Adriane, Laurie, Jeff, Sean, Justin, and Jordan; great-grandmother to: Kelsi, Jake, Kyle, Tyler, Alex, Sophia, Giovanni, Domenic, Jackson, Robbie, Keaton, Christian, and Connor; and great, great-grandmother to Elora and Killian. Fair and generous in all things, her love extended to mates and steps brought into the family fold.

Pat was predeceased by her dear husband David (Dave) in 1998, her beloved, eldest son Larry (2016) and her “little” sister Eva Lucille (Lou) Smith (2019).

A valued sister and sister-in-law, she leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will have fond memories of the fun and frolic of numerous Campbell family gatherings over the years.

Although Pat worked many years for Sears Canada, her main focus in life was her family. She and Dave enjoyed leisure time together at the cottage (with changing locations) or at their “double-wide” mobile home in Florida. They also travelled widely; whether camping with the kids or later, as a couple. As a widow, Pat formed friendships within her condo building where she pursued a socially and physically active lifestyle. A skillful painter, Pat had an appreciation of art and beauty that was reflected in her personal sense of style in both fashion and décor. She was interested in sewing, reading and spending time with friends and family whether at cards or in conversation. She was an excellent listener who was able to provide practical yet sage advice. Her indomitable spirit and determination allowed her to live independently and well into her 90s.

Cremation has taken place and as per Pat’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date when it is safe to gather.

If desired, memorial contributions can be made to a charity of your choice.

Pat’s strength of character and devotion to her family will remain an inspiration and cherished memory to all those who knew and loved her.

Colleen and family. I am so very sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She was always so kind with a generous heart. I know you and your mom shared an incredible bond. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

I’m trying to recall when I first met Mrs. Campbell. It may have been in the very early 80s when I was going to buy my first car. Steve must have told his dad I needed a car, because there I was sitting in The Toyota dealership way up on Islington Avenue buying a cute, little, yellow, two door Toyota Tercel. And Mr. Campbell also encouraged me to join CAA. I think of him every time I use their services, money well spent. Over the years, I’ve spent time chatting with Mrs. Campbell at gatherings. There was the bbq for Steve’s birthday, the day after the tornado hit Barrie. The kids were so little back then, some weren’t even born yet. The last time I chatted with Mrs. Campbell was after Larry’s funeral service, she was very quiet, speaking softly. I could feel her sadness. We hugged. I enjoyed hearing what Mrs. Campbell was up to from Noreen and Steve and envied her independent lifestyle, living on her own in her condo and driving well into her 80s. Pat, your family were very lucky to have you as their matriarch. I was lucky to know you through them.

I am so sorry to hear of Auntie Pats death. I am so glad she is not suffering. I am sad for Colleen, Steve and Donny and the grandchildren in their loss. I have so many memories all throughout our lives of your mom and dad when we were little visiting in the city, but most of my memories are of your mom and dad at our house up north and visiting them at their cottage in Burk's Falls. Your mom at the beach, her painting, and her laugh. She was very diplomatic, honest, caring. It was great to see my mom Ruby and Pat together, Girl friends for life. I imagine the four of our parents sitting around a table reminiscing good times on earth while in heaven. Steve, Don and Colleen, be gentle with yourselves in your grief.
Love Pam Edmunds/Fitzgerald

Although I haven't seen Auntie Pat much in the most recent years, I do remember when I was younger and I would have sleepovers with Colleen at their place and when I saw her at the Campbell Chili and Chat at Christmas time she always had a lovely smile and happy outlook on life. I was so sorry to hear of her fall and her passing and when reading the obituary, it is really amazing what she experienced in her life. I extend my sincere condolences to the whole family with lots of love.....Colleen, I am glad that you got to spend that last night at her side. Debbie Randell
