Obituary of Rhona Jane Campbell

The passing of Rhona Jane Campbell of Fredericton, NB, wife of the late Orville Campbell, occurred on Sunday, December 6, 2020 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital.  Born on November 11, 1936 in Upper Caverhill, NB, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Irma (Brawn) McKay. 


Rhona graduated from the Victoria Public Hospital School of Nursing in 1959 where she trained with two fellow students who would end up being her sisters in law, Janet Campbell Black and Marjorie Bamford Campbell. Rhona was a kind and compassionate soul and a career in nursing suited her perfectly.


She loved to travel and some of her excursions included a trip to England and Wales in 1990 with her Aunt Ruby and sister Frances, a family trip to Europe in 1999 to visit Doug, and a trip to Cali, Colombia for Doug and Marcela’s wedding in 2000.


She was a loving and supportive mother and grandmother and will be sadly missed by her entire family.


Rhona is survived by her sons, Rick Campbell (Joanne) of Eastern Passage, NS and Doug Campbell (Marcela) of The Woodlands, Texas, USA; grandson, Ben Campbell; sisters, Maxine Dobson, Marlene MacBride (Mike), Frances Scott (Keith) and Ginny Gibbons (Larry); brother, Harold McKay (Carolyn); several nieces and nephews.


Besides her husband, of 59 years, who just passed away on November 30, Rhona was predeceased by her sister, Irene Barlow.
