Annie Campbell

Annie Wilda Campbell, of Hanover, passed away at The Village Senior's Community, on Thursday, March 14, 2019, in her 99th year.  

Born in Bruce Township on April 6, 1920 to the late William and Charlotte (nee McKay) Reid. Annie was born on the family farm near Glammis. After graduating high school, she and her sister ventured off to Toronto to attend Bible School. She then met the love of her life, Hugh (who happened to be dating her sister at the time). Eventually love conquered and the two were married on the family farm in July of 1944.  Annie and her husband enjoyed their working life on the farm, and Annie was generous with her spare time, serving as a leader for many 4-H clubs, and as a member of the Eden Grove Women’s Institute. Annie also loved to play piano.   

Survived by daughter Charlotte (Ron) Spitzig of Hanover, Colin Campbell of Walkerton and Glen (Ann) Campbell of Markdale. Loved grandmother of Angela (Paul), Stacy (Sean), Jeff (Charity), Julie (Alfred), Natasha, Carrie-Ann, David (Kerry), Chantel (Sean), Melanie, and 20 great-grandchildren.  Fondly remembered by sisters Charlotte Wilson of Hanover, Margaret Collins of Caledon, and Shirley Woodason of Winnipeg.  Predeceased by her beloved husband Hugh, sons David and Howard, sister Ellen Colwell and her husband Bill, brother and sister in-law John and Bernice Reid, and brothers in-law Gordon Wilson, Michael Collins, and Robert Woodason.
