ST. ALBANS: Doreen Ann Campbell, age 84, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loved ones, on November 18, 2022.
She was born in West Rutland on December 15, 1937, the daughter of Albert and Eleanor (Carter) Ross.
Doreen married H. Keith Campbell on September 22, 1962.
Doreen worked for many years as an X-Ray Technician for Kerbs Memorial Hospital and the St. Albans Hospital. She also received her Real Estate broker’s license, working for Campbell Realty. She then went to work for IBM, where she received her technical degree in engineering through their Create Program and retired in 1998. She loved to spend time in her garden watching her flowers grow. She also had a love for sewing, knitting, tatting and cross-stitching, through the years. Her greatest joy was raising her children, with her loving husband and watching her grandbabies grow. She was fondly known by her family for ironing when she was mad. Doreen was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church and was a woman of great faith who spent many hours every day praying not just for her family and friends but for the entire world as well.
