November 11, 1941 – April 9, 2020

It is with great sadness, the family announces her peaceful passing at Actionmarguerite - St. Vital (Foyer Valade) at the age of 78 years.
Rosemarie was small in stature, big at heart. She brightened the lives of others and thrived on the exchange of interesting conversation with many. Kind, generous, thoughtful, caring, she always put others first. She was a ray of sunshine, especially on a cloudy day.
Rosemarie was born in Winnipeg and grew up in St. Boniface. She made a big impact in the French community as a teacher where she taught for many, many years and as a volunteer at St. Boniface Hospital. In her final teaching years, Rosemarie was a school librarian, which was a good fit for someone with such a passion for reading.
Rosemarie had a flair for decorating and their home was always lovely and welcoming. She also had a talent in the kitchen and loved to entertain family and friends. Her lamb shanks, tourtieres and osso buco were among her best. Rosemarie also loved to garden, golf, ski and travel. She loved their winter getaway in Arizona where they had so many friends.
Rosemarie was most undeserving of the hand she was dealt later in life. Despite everything, she still greeted you with her amazing smile when you entered her room at Foyer Valade. She truly appreciated her daily visits from her husband Graham and her brother Henry. She loved having tomatoes from her garden, getting her regular delivery of pringles and the occasional outing to McDonalds for a treat. She loved seeing her family and the close teaching friends that she had made so many memories with. Rosemarie is now finally at peace and we are all very much richer from having had her in our lives.
Rosemarie is survived by her husband Graham; stepson Ryan; grandchildren, Tyler and Jordan; brother Henry; niece Stacey (Dave) and their family; brother-in-law Allan and sister-in-law Vivian (Elton) and their family.
Rosemarie was predeceased by her parents, Adolphe and Cecile and her many aunts and uncles.
The family wishes to thank all the staff at Foyer Valade for her care over the years.
Cremation has taken place. As per Rosemarie's wishes, no public service will be held.

  • Last night I had a dream of Mrs. Campbell. So, I decided to search her name in the Google and just read about her passing. She was my grade 6 home room teacher at ecole Howden, and English teacher at College Beliveau for Grade 7 & 8. She was the best teacher ever! Everyone loved her. Was sad to read about her passing a year ago. - Posted by: Kenny Bond (Former student) on: Sep 04, 2021

  • Dotée d'une générosité du coeur, l'authenticité et une patience sans égale, Rosemarie Campbell a su faire briller le monde pour tout ceux qui la côtoyaient. Je n'oublierai jamais son sens d'écoute et d'appui, ayant toujours le temps pour une jeune qui pouvaient avoir mille et une questions sur tous les sujets possibles. Je n'oublierai jamais nos discussions, nos sorties de café ou resto pendant mes années universitaires, nos échanges sur la pédagogie et j'en passe. À ce jour, je m'inspire de l'importance qu'elle accordait à l'écoute des élèves et le fait que nous contribuons à jamais au développement de leur personne et non seulement aux connaissances académiques. Si une personne a eu un énorme impacte significatif sur ma carrière d'enseignante, c'est elle. Je garderai ces souvenirs précieusement. Sincères condoléances à sa famille. - Posted by: Chantal Delannoy Boulet (ancienne élève) on: Apr 23, 2020

  • Rosemarie shaped my life in so many ways. It is with great sorrow that I learn of her passing, and especially of the challenges she faced in her later years.

For everything! - Posted by: Teresa Wood (Former Student) on: Apr 21, 2020

  • To Graham & family My prayers & thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Thank you Graham & Henry for your daily visits. When my mom was in the room across the hall at Foyer, I always popped in to say hi to Rosemarie. She always greeted me with her smile and we'd chat a bit. As I continued doing volunteer work at the Foyer, even towards the end, she still remembered my name & said hi. Thank you to Yvonne & Yvette for your friendship & loyalty towards Rosemarie. What a beautiful picture of her! Sincere sympathy Simone Nicolas - Posted by: SIMONE NICOLAS (volunteer at nursing home) on: Apr 18, 2020

I enjoyed our visits at her home and at Foyer Valade reminiscing about her teaching career, colleagues, former students and all of her travels. My deepest condolences to Graham, Stacey and all of her family. Liasan - Posted by: Liasan Bingham (Former student) on: Apr 18, 2020

  • My sincere condolences to Mme. Campbell’s family. She was my grade 7 English teacher at Beliveau in 1987. I remember her smile, her positive spirit, and her long flowing skirts like it was yesterday. I also remember how patient and kind she was with the ‘trouble-maker’ in the class, whose background and home life seemed different than many of the other kids’. She joked so easily with him and had his back. As a parent of school-aged children I have even more respect now for teachers who can leave that kind of a mark in a student’s memory. So grateful to have had her as my teacher, even if for only one year. RIP, Mme. Campbell. - Posted by: Marnie Baizley (Former student ) on: Apr 18, 2020
