It is with great sadness that the family of Carol Ann (Jewett) Campbell of Fredericton NB, wife of the late Malcolm "Mac" Campbell, announces her passing on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at the Upper River Valley Hospital, Waterville NB. Born on March 19, 1936 in Woodstock NB, she was a daughter of the late Carroll and Jennie (McLaughlin) Jewett. Carol Ann loved teaching at Albert Street School and Fredericton High before retiring after 33 years. Over the years, she loved working in her flower gardens, reading, writing poetry and shopping for a good bargain.
Carol Ann’s love of travel took her to many destinations in the world with some of her favourites being Australia and New Zealand, New York City, Europe and the Canadian Rockies. Carol Ann loved music and live theatre. Whether it was a Broadway musical, a Bourbon Street jazz concert, a Shakespearean play at the Stratford Festival or writing the scripts and directing the dinner theatres at Fredericton High, she appreciated and enjoyed every moment.
Nicknamed “The Energizer Bunny”, Carol Ann decorated for every occasion on the calendar but her favourite holiday was Christmas. The transformation of her home into the annual Christmas extravaganza was magic for those who were fortunate enough to be part of it.
Carol Ann had a huge heart and took many under her wing for care. Acknowledgement was not needed or wanted for the guidance and help she gave. As an example of her giving nature, she had sponsored a child with World Vision for the last 48 years.
For Carol Ann, family was placed first and foremost. She gave unconditional love and unwavering support to her immediate and extended family and she made every person feel that they were the most important one in her life. Her enthusiasm and love for life were evident in everything she did and felt by every person whose life she touched. She left a lasting impression on everyone she met.
Carol Ann is survived by her daughter, Teri Ann Gibson (Scott) of Woodstock, NB; grandson, Christopher Gibson (Rachelle McLean) of Fredericton, NB; siblings, Marilyn Holyoke, Paul Jewett (Heather) and Jane Gamble; brother in law Jack Campbell and several nieces and nephews.
Besides her husband and parents, Carol Ann was predeceased by her brothers in law Doug Holyoke and Kenny Gamble, her sister in law Madeline (Phillips) Campbell and a niece Jean (Holyoke) Rudman.
A celebration of Carol Ann’s life and interment will be held at a later date. For those who wish, remembrances may be made to World Vision Canada or to a charity of the donor's choice. Personal condolences may be offered through www.yorkfh.com
