Obituary

DOROTHY ELIZABETH CAMPBELL
1928-2021

On November 7, we lost a cherished mother, and we are proud and honoured to have been able to share her life.

Mom was born in Marysburg, SK to Richard and Eleanor Stroeder (Jaeb), and was the second eldest of 10 children.  Raised in a rural community, her early years with family was filled with music.

In 1946, after graduating from business college in Saskatoon, Mom was employed as a bookkeeper, and she loved her many years in Saskatoon.

Mom and Dad met when young and were reacquainted in Saskatoon and married in 1953.  In 1959, they relocated to Melfort where they raised their family and cherished company of good friends.  They enjoyed their retirement in Kelowna, BC for many years before relocating to Lethbridge, AB to be closer to family.

Mom loved the challenge of creating beautiful things - sewing, crocheting, decorating, and gardening.  She enjoyed golfing, bridge and shopping.  One of her greatest passions was playing the piano, and she achieved a Grade 8 Royal Conservatory while raising her family.

She volunteered many hours to Kinettes, and to Saskatchewan Music Festivals in many roles, including accompanying numerous students.

Mom was dedicated to taking care of us and staying close to her extended family throughout her life. 

Dorothy is survived by daughters, Camille Bieber (Brian), Carla Campbell, Shelly Campbell (Mark Antonini).  Grandchildren, Brett Bieber (Tanya) and Lachlan Barry.  Great grandchildren, Bennett, Ayden, and Ashtyn Bieber.  Surviving siblings, Lucille Stothers, Murray Stroeder, Denise Stroeder and Duane Stroeder, and many in-laws, nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by her loving husband of 67 years, Ron, her parents, Richard and Eleanor Stroeder, siblings Marcy Hoffman, Viola Gerwing, Verna Stroeder, Warren Stroeder and Lenore Couture.

We would like to thank the staff of GSS West Highland Centre for the wonderful care and safe home provided for our parents.

As per Dorothy’s request, there will be no service.
