Maureen Campbell Obituary (2022) – Grand Haven, MI

Mrs. Maureen Lee Campbell, age 84, passed away August 19, 2022. She was born October 13, 1937, to Maurice T. and Margaret L. (Jackson) Wood, and grew up in St. Ignace, Michigan, during the time when the Mackinac Bridge was built.

After graduating from Butterworth School of Nursing, she worked as a registered nurse at Butterworth Hospital, and then at University of Michigan Medical Center eventually specializing in neurosurgery. While working in Ann Arbor, she met and fell in love with Norman J. Campbell, who was completing his graduate work in engineering at the University of Michigan. They were married September 8, 1962, at St. Ignace. Shortly after they were wed, Norm’s career led them to Burbank, California, where they lived for three years. They returned to the Detroit area of ​​Michigan for five years and then settled in North Muskegon in 1970.

In addition to her love of nursing, she embraced her role as homemaker and felt grateful for the opportunity to stay at home to raise her daughters. She was a member of the First Congregational Church of Muskegon, where she taught Sunday School and was a former member of Christ Community Church of Spring Lake. She was an active member of PEO Chapter BT, Butterworth Alumni, and participated in her children’s activities and served as one of their Girl Scout leaders. She enjoyed living in Northern and West Michigan, and she made cherished memories with family and friends in Glen Arbor.

Maureen’s faith in God sustained her through many trials and tribulations throughout her life. Her faith journey was cemented at Presbytery Point in Michigamme, and this camp holds a special place in her heart. She enjoyed skiing, traveling, needlework and reading, but most importantly she loved her roles as daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

She is survived by two daughters: Melinda (Ian) Hollands and granddaughter Ashley Hollands of Traverse City, Wendy Radaz of Alma, grandson Brody (Megan) Radaz and granddaughter Megan Radaz; brother Roger (Tina) Wood of Mason; a large extended family, and dear friends. She was preceded in death by cherished husband, Norm Campbell, on January 20, 2014.
