It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Bernadette Campbell, age 66, on January 27, 2023 surrounded by her loving family at the Maple Hill Manor.
Bernadette was the daughter of Michael Campbell and the late Margaret 'Peggy' Campbell.
Bernadette grew up in New Victoria and never wavered from loving the water and the New Victoria lighthouse. She left New Victoria in 1974 and pursued a long career in the insurance industry in Hamilton, Ontario. Throughout her career, she was known as a dedicated worker who always helped her co-workers and clients. Bernadette retired home to Cape Breton in 2012 where she was diagnosed with Alzheimers at the young age of 56.
Bernadette will be forever loved by her children, Ryan (Becky) Delisle of Hamilton, ON and Chantal (Simon) MacKay of Sydney; grandchildren, Jack and Claire Delisle, Cale and Alistair MacKay; sisters, Sharon (Greg) MacMaster, Lorraine (Raymond) MacDonald; brothers, Michael (Jane), Robbie (Alana), Bruce (Corrine), Blaise (Joann), Hector (Tracey), Glen (Liza) and sister-in-law, Susan Campbell.
Bernadette was predeceased by her mother, Peggy Campbell; sisters, Mary (Scott) Blinkhorn, Colleen Campbell and George Campbell (2022).
