Adeline Isobel (nee Cardiff) Campbell
Mrs. Adeline Isobel (née Cardiff) Campbell passed away peacefully on Friday, May 7, 2021 at Huronlea Home for the Aged, Brussels. She was in her 99th year.
Adeline was the beloved wife of the late Harold (2007) for 68 years and the loving mother of William (Diana) Campbell, Nancy (Albert) Wasson and Frances (Steve) Bearss. She was the grandma of 13, great-grandma of 36 and great-great-grandma of five.
Adeline was predeceased by her son Dwight and his spouse Joan, grandson Curtis Campbell, one granddaughter and two great-grandchildren.
Adeline was born on Brandon Line near Brussels in 1923. After moving to Brussels, but then being flooded out, her family eventually settled in Blyth.
Adeline loved to sing and spent part of her life singing at CKNX Radio and with the Blyth United Church choir for almost 70 years.
Adeline worked as a seamstress, doing alterations for her community and sewed a few wedding dresses for her family and friends. She was a very artistic person, she loved to paint and draw and was quite talented. She liked to draw “Gibson Girls” with their fancy hairstyles and dresses.
Adeline always kept her family close and enjoyed watching them blossom. She was a very easy-going, sweet and gentle woman who shared her smiles and kind words unconditionally. She will be greatly missed.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a family funeral service took place on Wednesday, May 12.
In lieu of flowers and as expressions of sympathy, donations to the Huronlea Volunteer Auxiliary or the Blyth United Church would be appreciated.
