Roy, Mary and family
I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Will miss her colorful hair.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Elizabeth Evelyn Campbell (nee Goulden) at the age of 74. She passed away as she lived, with grace and style at the Blanche River Health Kirkland Lake Site on Sunday, August 28th, 2022.
Betty was predeceased by her parents John and Florence Goulden and brothers Clifford and Tom. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Roy Campbell and her daughters Barbara Richard (Albert), Brenda Hansen (Peter Lee), and Mary Campbell (Brad Morin). Nana to Brandon, Nicholas, Druscilla, Tristian, Arrionna, and Violet, also Great Nana to Hailey, Thorun, Emily as well as honorary Nana to Abigail. She is also survived by her siblings Don Goulden (Anita), Pat Gemus, Ron Goulden (Lynda), and Danny Goulden (Michelle), sisters- in- law Clara Goulden and Pat Goulden and 7 nieces and 5 nephews.
Betty was born in Guelph, Ontario in 1948 and in 1958 her family moved to the farm in Otto Township. She had a love for all animals. She met and married her soul mate Roy in 1972, celebrating 50 years in April of this year.
During her lengthy illness she always had a smile on her face and was the light and life of everyone she touched. With her wildly colored hair flying in the wind, she loved racing through town on her Scooter. She and her granddaughter Arrionna would plan what wild hair colors she would be sporting next.
She liked it when people visited and they could have a conversation and since she can no longer be part of the conversation, there will be no visitation or funeral as per Betty's wishes. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Betty directed to the Liver foundation of Canada would be appreciated.
We would like to thank the awesome staff at the Kirkland Hospital. Big thanks to Betty Smallwood for your kindness and direction during this challenging time.
