    October 5, 1976 - August 5, 2022

    On Friday, August 5, 2022, surrounded by love, at her childhood home in Rollo Bay, Angela Campbell, age 45, found peace. She is survived by her husband and best friend, Daryl Burgess and will be forever loved by her parents, Danny and Donna (nee MacLean), her sister and family, Andrea (Jeff), Porter and Georgia Clinton. Angela will also be lovingly remembered by Daryl’s daughters Ashley and Lauren, and his mother Sandy, who welcomed her into their family. She also had a great love for her dogs Sadie and Maisie and is survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Angela gifted her time, attention, and love to the many important young people in her life and she would say she was rewarded tenfold. She was often the glue that brought people together, letting them be their best selves, whether at work in her role as project manager or amongst family and friends. In her almost 46 years Angela did what was most important - loved and was loved unconditionally, providing us an example of a strong, caring, independent woman. As you remember Angela, think of her tapping those perfectly polished toes to a fiddle tune, being on the other end of the line to offer support, hiking a trail with Sadie and Maisie, or cheering you on from a sideline. A special thank you to the doctors and nurses at the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre. An extra special thanks to Dr. LePage for the personalized care she gave Angela. Finally, to all those who worked hard to make MAID a possibility, a heartfelt thank you for creating space for people to end suffering with dignity. A public visitation will be held at Dingwell Funeral Home on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 from 5-8pm. By personal request, a celebration of life will take place at a later date for close friends and family. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Angela can be made to The Terry Fox Foundation, a cause Angela felt strongly about.

She made time for everyone with grace and joy. Nanny Betty leaves to mourn her 10 “guppies” Mark, Sarah, Carla, Michael, C.J., Mattie, Samantha, Ryan, Thomas and Imogen and more recently 2 great granddaughters Reese and Brooklyn. While raising her family in Montreal, Betty worked at the Royal Montreal Golf Club for over 50 years alongside her sisters Celly and Susie. Upon her retirement, Betty returned to the island where her sister Celly and nephew Leo were her constant companions and eventually her care givers. She leaves to mourn countless relatives and friends both in PEI, Quebec, and Ontario. She will be remembered for her kind and gentle spirit, ever pleasant demeanor, sense of humor, easy smile and loving nature. Betty will be missed by all who knew and loved her. The family would like to thank the staff from Souris Home Care for their care over the past year and would also like to recognize the excellent care and compassion afforded to her by the nurses and staff at the Kings County Memorial Hospital. A funeral mass for friends and family will take place at the St. Charles Roman Catholic Church on Friday, August 5, 2022 at 11:00am with interment to follow in the church cemetery. If so desired, donations in memory of Betty can be made to the St. Charles Cemetery Fund or the Eastern Kings Health Foundation (Souris Home Care).
