Florence Campbell passed away (one month short of her 99th Birthday) in C.R. on December 17, 2018 to join her husband Duane who passed away June 19, 2014. Some of the best years of their lives began when Bert Hansen barged their car and belongings to Cortes Bay in 1967. Duane was known for his "water witching" and being the social guy that enjoyed all the "Old Timer's" Dances. On the other hand, Florence enjoyed being at home, spending time in her garden or milking their goats in the goat barn that Gene Norman built for them! They left Cortes Bay in 1997, when a doctor told Duane that he only had a couple years to live. Fourteen years later , in 2011, they returned to C.R. where Duane had a wonderful 3 years with their son, Bruce Campbell (& his wife Rebecca). Florence had moved into a Care Home a month before Duane passed away, living there for 4 1/2 years before her passing. They are missed by many!
