The family announces the passing of Carmel Campbell on Monday August 26, 2019, with her family by her side. Carmel faced her journeys end as she faced her life, with strength and brevity. She was born in New Liskeard on March 6, 1931 to Norman and Kathleen (nee Honsberger) Dodds. She was a telephone operator before she married Gordon Campbell in 1949. She raised 4 children with strong, old fashioned values. She was renowned for her family meals, handiwork and baking. She had a wonderful sense of humour. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the New Liskeard Fire Department for many years.

She is survived by her brother Richard (Anne), her sister Susan, her sister-in-law Dorothy Dodds; her children Brenda (Doug) Goddard; Shirley Allen; Dr. Norman Campbell; and Donald (Cathy); 9 grandchildren, and several great grandchildren.
