OBIT VeraCampbell

Former Los Altos resident, Vera Campbell, passed away March 1st. She was 94. A sweet, bright, loving woman who lived the truth and loved the good in everyone. She had a sparkle that is hard to define, making others feel at ease and wholly welcome. Her home was always open to others.

Vera was born in Portland, Oregon, but grew up in Tacoma, Washington, where she married her long-time pal, Duke Campbell. They lived in Florida, New York, California, and Washington, and settled on Vashon Island, Washington, 45 years ago.

Vera will be sorely missed and long cherished by her children: China, Fred and his wife Kelly, Candy and her husband Jean, Dick, and his wife Claudia, Patty, and Carol and her husband Tim; her sister-in-law Pat Burrus; 11 grandchildren; and 11 great grandchildren.

A celebration in Vera's honor will be held at her home on Vashon Island on Saturday, June 28th at 1pm. All friends are welcome.

Contributions may be made to a Vashon charity or to a charity of your choice.
