Shirley Margaret Campbell

Feb 19, 1933 – May 30, 2018
Shirley died peacefully  in her sleep at Lions Gate Hospital  in North Vancouver. She  was   predeceased by  her husbands Hugh Scott Douglas and Claude Campbell.

She is survived by her sons Ross Douglas (Susan), Roger Scott-Douglas (Deborah),  Nairne Scott-Douglas  (Anita) and Alasdair Douglas (Nancy Celetti) and her grandchildren Hugh (Lara), Graeham (Helen), Gregor  (Rosa), Kathryn (Emmett), Jacqueline, Stefanie, Kristen, Hannah, and  Meghan as  well  as  her  great-grandchildren Van, Morrisey  and  Henri.

Shirley was born in Wales, took  her  nursing  training  in Oxford and London in the UK. She then married  Hugh in 1956, before moving  to  Southern  Rhodesia  (Zimbabwe)  where she continued to practice physiotherapy, while they raised their sons together.

In 1966, she moved with Hugh and her sons to Calgary  to begin  a new  life. In 1977, she completed her bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy from  the University of Alberta. She continued to practice physiotherapy specializing  in special  needs  children in Calgary, Peace River, Nanaimo and Penticton. After  Hugh’s  death  in  1979, she  met  Claude and they were married in 1983.  Claude and Shirley retired to Invermere in 1997. After Claude’s death in 2015,  she  moved to  “Amica in West  Vancouver”, her “Fairmont” experience, where  she loved being pampered by the staff. Shirley had a passion for family, multiculturalism and indigenous people;  in fact,  people  in  general  as well  as the  planet earth. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.

In lieu of flowers,  please  donate to Doctors Without Borders.  An informal  celebration  of  her life  will  be held  on  June  16, 2018  at  2  pm  at  the  Hollyburn Funeral Home, 1807 Marine Drive, West Vancouver.
