Mary (Janowski) Campbell, 65, of Manchester, formerly of East Hartford, beloved wife of 44 years to Dennis S. Campbell, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013, after a brief illness.

Mary was born on Sept. 3, 1948, in Cavendish, Vt., daughter of the late Joseph and Arlene (Burt) Janowski. She had been a resident of East Hartford for several years before moving to Manchester in 1989. Mary was a graduate of Northampton Junior College in Massachusetts, where she earned her degree in Secretarial Sciences. She was formerly employed with Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and more recently with the state of Connecticut for more than 22 years, retiring in 2008 as a fiscal administrative assistant. Mary enjoyed scrapbooking, taking her Saturday trips all over New England with her beloved Dennis, and especially spending time with her grandchildren and family. She will be remembered by her smile, her contagious laughter, and her unconditional kindness to anyone she met. Mary was greatly loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her two daughters, Kimberly A. Campbell and her two children, Zachary B. Campbell and Angelina N. Campbell, all of Manchester, and Kristin M. Campbell of Manchester; three sisters, Ginny Raymond and her husband, Frank, of Grafton, Vt., Stephanie Agard and her husband, John, of West Rutland, Vt., and Christina Lyle of Exeter, N.H.; several nieces and nephews, and her treasured cat, Baby. Mary was predeceased by her cherished nephew, Nicholas Agard, and her brother-in-law, Stephen Lyle.

A celebration of her beautiful life will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at the Manchester Elks Lodge, 30 Bissell St., Manchester.
