WINSLOW, MAINE--Lois A. Campbell, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, passed away Friday, November 15, 2013, at the Lakewood Continuing Care Center with her loving family gathered at her side. Lois was born in Waterville, Maine on October 29, 1931, the daughter of Elva and Francis Armstrong. Lois graduated from Waterville High School in 1949 and attended Husson College. Lois married her childhood sweetheart, Merton D. Campbell in May of 1951, and followed him to Dover, Delaware where Merton was stationed in the U.S. Air Force. Lois later worked as a bookkeeper for her husband’s business, Campbell Taping Company, and as a teacher aide at Winslow Junior High. She was also a “one-of-a kind” grandmother who provided childcare for her grandchildren as a blessing to their working parents. Lois had a servant’s heart for many ministries at the Winslow Congregational Church, serving as Sunday School superintendent, church secretary, junior choir director, and adult choir member. She was a member of the Women’s Fellowship and Ye Female Society for the Support of the Gospel. She also played piano for services when the need arose. Following in her father’s footsteps, Lois was extremely generous. She loved Christmas, and looked for special gifts all year long, enjoying the early bargains at Marden’s. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, reading to them, playing games with them, putting on puppet plays, making special scrapbooks for them, and swimming with them at camp. Lois enjoyed entertaining friends at the family camp on Messalonskee Lake, preparing delicious meals and playing games and cards. She and her husband Mert helped with the Meals on Wheels program at the Muskie Center in Waterville, Maine for many years. Lois also served as an “angel” for the Opera House which enabled her to view the plays and musicals she so loved. Lois was a long-time member of the Kenne-belles, a women’s barbershop singing group, and also enjoyed performing with her quartets, the “Maine Quarter Notes” and “Two + Two”. Lois is survived by her beloved husband, Mert; her three children, Debra Clark and her husband, Dan of Winslow, Maine, James Campbell and his wife, Peg, of Fairfield, Maine, and John Campbell and his wife, Bridget, of Winslow, Maine. Her precious grandchildren are Erin Pollock and her husband, Jonathan of Durham, Maine, David Campbell of South Portland, Maine, Ben Clark and his wife, Theresa of Fairfield, Maine, Beth Carlton and her husband, Andy of Fairfield, Maine, and Haley Campbell of Winslow, Maine. Great-grandchildren are Gabriel and Lily Pollock, Emily and Hannah Carlton, Grace, Ella, Lydia, Samuel, and Theodore Clark. She is also survived by loving sisters-in law, Peggy Campbell Crosby of Fairfield, Maine, and Joscelyn Campbell Moody of Macedon, New York. Special family members include Cara Spurling, Jean Forest, Nan Fennell; and her dear nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Winslow Congregational Church on Lithgow Street in Winslow, Maine. A private graveside burial will follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Winslow Congregational Church. The family wishes to thank Dr. David Preston and his nurse Debbie for their years of wonderful care.
