Olive T. Campbell
Olive Campbell (nee Dougherty) passed away December 9, 2015. She was born December 12, 1921, the 5th of 10 children of Charles & Mary Jane Dougherty.
Survived by her three children: Pat (Doug) Ward, Ken (Marilyn) Campbell, and Dawn (Murray) Smith; eight grandchildren and several great grandchildren; her sisters, Beatrice Sawka, June Monsos, Mary Dickie, Gloria McLaren, and Virginia Ambler, sister-in-law Helene Cade and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was predeceased by her husband Don Campbell, her parents, sisters Beulah Rohe, Charlotte Schindler, Violet Johnstone, and brother Charles.
Mom was born in Ashcroft, BC and was raised on Maiden Creek Ranch near Clinton, BC. She spent her younger years doing ranch work and riding her horse in the hills above the Ranch. When she left home, she moved to Langley, BC, where she met Dad. After they got married, they settled in Clinton until Dad’s work moved them to Lillooet, Dawson Creek, Ladysmith, and Merritt. Several years after Dad’s passing she moved to Kamloops.
Mom spent many years travelling around locally in her truck and camper. When she was in her 70’s, she spent a few summers camping in a tent at Green Lake with family. She had always wanted to see the North, so she travelled to the NWT, Yukon, Atlin BC, and she enjoyed a bus trip to Alaska, trips that she treasured. She took many memorable RV trips with Helene and Bud Cade to places she had never seen. Mom loved being around family and will be greatly missed by all of us.
A family gathering to celebrate Mom’s life will be held on January 9, 2016 at Maiden Creek Arena.
