CAMPBELL, Denise Linda  -  With sadness and broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Denise Linda Campbell on Saturday, May 20, 2017 in her 60th year. 

Denise was a caring and compassionate person, not just to those around her, but also to the environment.  She loved nature, from plants and flowers to birds and critters, she loved them all. Denise was an intellectual, loved to read, and had a strong work ethic, no matter which job she was working. She was also a collector of odds and sods that date to the 1900-1950 period. Denise had many talents, but will be remembered most for the way she made origami birds for children whenever the opportunity presented itself.
