Passed on: September 19th, 2013

It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness we announce the passing of Mary Elaine (Hawley) Campbell, in Surrey, B.C. on Sept. 19, 2013.
Mary was the cherished first born daughter of Kenneth and Mora Hawley born on Oct. 9, 1943.
Mary is survived by her husband, Danny Campbell. She was the beloved mother of four children. Two boys, Daniel Campbell (Michele), Toronto, Dale Campbell, Surrey, B.C. and two daughters, Hawley Campbell, Florida and Krystine (Jeff) Dahl, Calgary. She was the loving grandmother to nine grandchildren, whom she adored.
She will be greatly missed by her siblings. Brothers, Kenneth Hawley, Vancouver, Murdock Hawley, Sydney, Chris (Jane) Hawley, Grimsby, Ont. Sisters, Carolyn Hawley, (who was very close to Mary), Vancouver, Delores (Clifford) Sampson, Brampton, Ont., Cheryl (Richard) Joseph Sydney. Also many nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was predeceased by her brother, William James Hawley in infancy.
Mary Elaine graduated from Holy Angels High School in Sydney and went to work at the telephone company (MTT). She met and married the love of her life Danny, and moved to Montreal, then on to Bramalea, Ont., finally retiring in Surrey, B.C.
Mary loved her work in retail at Hudson Bay, Robert Simpsons and the Brick. Mary’s passion was travel, as Danny worked at Air Canada. The whole family had wonderful trips across Canada, United States, Hawaii and Mexico. But her favourite trips were the ones home to Cape Breton. The teapot was always on and gathering news from all the extended family in Cape Breton and beyond.
Mary’s positive attitude and courage throughout her illness was remarkable. She never complained to any of her family.
The family wishes to thank Danny for the loving care he provided Mary throughout her illness. He was truly there for her and that meant so much to her and all her family.
Mary’s wish was to be buried at home in Cape Breton.
"Mary, you were a big part of our lives and we will miss you, until we meet again."
A memorial service will take place Saturday, Sept. 28, 10 a.m. at Chant’s funeral home 564 Alexandra St., Sydney with Fr. Bill Burke officiating.
