Margaret Helen Campbell (nee Fotheringham) of London, formerly of Kincardine, died Jan. 13, 2023, at the London Health Sciences Centre, in her 76th year, after a brief illness. Predeceased by her husband, Bruce, in 1998; parents, Richard and Erma (Faulkner) Fotheringham; and in-laws, Clarence and Jeanetta (Inkster) Campbell. Also predeceased by her bonus-mother-in-law, Marjorie (McLeod/McKay) Campbell; and sister-in-law, Margaret (Campbell) Smith. Margaret will be deeply missed by her children, Mary Jane (Joel) Anderson of Thamesford, Lisa (Ellard) Teeple of Thamesford, and Rob Campbell of Strathroy. “Nana” was so loved and will be missed by her loving grandchildren Cole Thynne, Ellie and Ryan Teeple, Aiden Anderson, and Emmy and Macy Campbell. Also mourning her passing, is her bonus-daughter, Amanda (Jesso) Overholt, who joined the family 30 years ago through Big Sisters of London. Survived by her sisters, Evelyn (Craig) Fotheringham and Barbara Fotheringham; brothers-in-law, Bert (Jo-Anne) Campbell and Ron Smith; and sister-in-law, Beth Campbell. Margaret began her career as a hairdresser before starting a family and taking on her role as a homemaker and mother on the Campbell family farm just outside of Kincardine. When the kids were older, she took a job at the Bruce Tropical greenhouse where she enjoyed working alongside many friends, including her life-long friend, Carol MacKenzie. After Bruce died, Margaret moved to Hanover to care for her mother, and worked part-time at Rexall pharmacy. In 2013, the kids convinced Margaret to make the move to London to be closer to family, and she remained there until her death. Margaret loved spending time with her kids and grandkids, and could often be found cheering them on at their games, dance recitals, and music showcases. No service will be held. Cremation has taken place and a private family burial will be planned. In lieu of flowers and as an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
