Joyce M. Campbell Obituary
Joyce Macdonald Campbell, age 90, passed away at her residence in Columbus, Ohio on November 2, 2017. She is preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Harrison S. Campbell, her son, Bruce M. Campbell, and her daughter -in -law Jama Mooney. Joyce was born on July 8, 1927 in West Springfield, Massachusetts to James and May Macdonald, and graduated from Boston University in 1948, the first in her family to attend college. She married Harrison Campbell, the love of her life, on June 10, 1950. Joyce worked as an editor for McGraw-Hill, taught elementary school, worked at Wellesley College, and retired from Old South Church in Boston. Joyce was also an avid volunteer, working with children at the Guadalupe Center and the PTA in Canoga Park, CA, teaching English as a second language, serving in leader ship in the League of Women Voters in every state she lived in, and serving with the Wellesley Village Congregational Church. She raised four sons as the family moved throughout the United States, eventually settling in Wellesley, MA. Joyce will be remembered for her enthusiasm, her passion, her diverse interests, her epic Thanksgiving dinners and, most of all, for her whole-hearted devotion to her family. She is survived by daughter-in-law Constance Lappa, her sons Alan (Marcia), Drew (Karen), Harry (Terry), her beloved grandchildren Colin, Megan, Katherine, Elizabeth, Peter, Joe, nieces Jill, Laura, Angela, and Nancy, and nephew Phillip. The family would like to thank the devoted nurses and staff of Friendship Village of Dublin, Ohio for their excellent and loving service to our mother. A celebration of Joyce's life will take place at the Wellesley Congregational Church in Wellesley, MA on June 2, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be sent to [email protected] Memorial contributions may be made to the Wellesley Village Church at www. welleselyvillagechurch.org.
