Kathleen Campbel Obituary, Death – Last evening, the world dimmed as my brother and I bid farewell to our cherished mother. Kathleen “Kathy” Campbell, a beacon of love as a mother, grandmother, wife, and friend, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, at the Merrimack County Nursing Home in Boscawen. She was 67 years old.
Born on November 2, 1955, in Franklin, N.H., Kathy was the daughter of Kenneth and Beverly Worden. Her heart and roots remained firmly planted in Hill, N.H., where she spent the majority of her life. Kathy dedicated many years of her life as a secretary in Franklin, demonstrating her unwavering work ethic and commitment. Yet, her true passion resided at home, where she immersed herself in various crafts and found joy in the company of her beloved pets.
A profound affinity for animals, especially her cherished dogs, painted her life with warmth and compassion. Kathy’s love for her family and friends was immeasurable, and she delighted in the simple pleasures of cooking, reading, and sharing laughter. Her vibrant sense of humor could light up even the darkest of days, leaving an indelible smile on the faces of those fortunate enough to know her.
Her legacy lives on through her surviving family, including her son Shawn Jeanson and his wife Nicole of Tilton, her son Justin Wheeler and his husband John Bratten of Alexandria, her husband Brad Campbell of Hill, her adored grandchildren Kaylee and Aiden Jeanson of Tilton, her brother Todd Worden of Hill, and her lifelong best friend Leigh Thomson-Liberatore.
Kathy was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Kenneth Worden, Jr. She also leaves behind the memory of former husbands Michael Jeanson and Dean Wheeler. In accordance with Kathy’s expressed wishes, there will be no designated calling hours. A heartfelt graveside service is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. The service will be held at the Bunker Hill Road cemetery in Hill, where Kathy will find eternal rest.
In honor of Kathy’s remarkable compassion for animals, memorial contributions can be made in her name to the N.H. Humane Society. As we bid our final goodbyes, let us remember Kathy for the boundless love she shared, the laughter she spread, and the warmth she brought into the lives of all fortunate enough to know her.
