CAMPBELL, Elizabeth McKenna

August 26, 1937 - November 27, 2021

Her family sent her lovingly and peacefully over the rainbow at Wellington Terrace in Fergus, Ontario at the age of 84. She was the beloved wife of John Campbell and daughter of the late David and Madeline Rankin. She will be held lovingly in the hearts of her children; Laurie Vonk (Campbell) and Andy Campbell, as well as their spouses Peter Vonk and Carsa Campbell. She will be cherished and live on in her adored grandchildren Maryn Vonk, Blake Campbell, Rhianna Vonk and Rachel Campbell. Betty was a Scottish Lassie, who got married at the age of twenty and with her new husband embarked for a life in Canada. The young couple immigrated to Montreal and with an intrepid spirit created a beautiful life together. Their journey took this couple to Burlington and then they finally settled in Guelph. As an Administrative Assistant in the Department of Zoology at the University of Guelph, she found lasting friendship with her co-workers Anna, Irene and Sheila. As members of the Cutten Club, Betty and John became an avid golfing couple. Their love of the game resulted in travelling adventures and eventually yearly trips to Florida as Snow Birds. However, her family meant everything to her and nothing brought her more joy than celebrating yearly traditions, especially Christmas baking with her granddaughters and making lemon meringue pies for Blake’s birthday. There will be no visitation or memorial service, as the family will be honouring Betty’s memory in a personal way. However, if you were blessed in life to know her, raise a glass of pinot grigio and know “she was thinking about you all the time!” To honour Betty’s life, the family would be grateful for any donations to Wellington Terrace in Fergus/Elora. There are no words to describe the gratitude the family has for the compassionate staff at the Terrace. For the last four years she was cared for so beautifully by the Angels on Oak Glen. From the moment she entered WT till the moment she passed, Betty was part of their family and surrounded with such tenderness and love. From the bottom of our hearts – Thank You.
