Agnes (Forrest) Campbell
60, Dartmouth Nova Scotia

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Agnes “Aggie” Campbell, age 60, of Dartmouth Nova Scotia, loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend on April 25, 2020 surrounded by her loved ones.

Agnes was small in stature but larger than life. Her energy, love, and humor were infectious to those lucky enough to be part of her story. Agnes loved to spent time outdoors and exercising. She enjoyed going for long walks both by herself and with family members. She met many people and made many friends on her daily journey around the neighborhood. Through her genuine interest and compassion for others, Agnes had a major impact on many lives.

Agnes brought a lot of joy to the world and to those who knew her. She did this through her playful humor and goofy personality. She loved playing April fools jokes on her family and her ability to tease and banter always made everyone smile.

She always knew what she wanted and was never afraid to go for it, she was proud of her decisions. Choosing Bill as her life partner was something she decided, no one understood why, not even him. But this was one of the best decisions she ever made, not only for herself, but for Bill. She brought him into a large and loving family and gave him a life he could only ever dream of having. They built a house that she made into a home. In this home she loved to bake and spend time together as a family.

Agnes was a very happy person who did not need anything outside of her family. Family was everything to her. She gave everything to her family and never expected anything in return, and she loved each and every one of them unconditionally. She spent a lot of time talking with them and kept closely connected regardless of physical distance. She had the gift to gab with everyone and loved visiting family members for a chat over a cup of tea.

She was an incredibly independent person who was selfless, strong, humble, optimistic, and nurturing. She taught her daughters the importance of these traits over the years while spending quality time together. She enjoyed browsing yard sales and thrifting with both her daughters. She taught them many life lessons and prepared them for bright, successful, and happy futures. She always told them to “save for a rainy day,” “never lie because the truth will always come out,” and “to be kind to everyone, because you never know what someone else is going through.”

Agnes was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, and confidant. She will remain in many hearts and will be forever loved and never forgotten.

Born in Sydney Mines, she was the daughter of the late Willis and Lillian Forrest.

She is survived by her husband, William Campbell of Dartmouth; daughters Ashley (Cole MacIntyre) and Jessica (Ryan Ambrose) Campbell both of Dartmouth; sisters Elizabeth (late Ronald) Leblanc, Diane E. Donovan, Sarah (Alex) Mackinnon, all of Sydney Mines; brothers Willis (Diane), Joseph (Paulette), Benjamin (Jeanie), George (Ann Lynn), all of Sydney Mines; and many nieces and nephews.

Beside her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Beatrice (Wayne) MacMullin; and brother John Forrest.

A graveside service will take place in Brookside Cemetery, Sydney Mines at a later date. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to her family at
