With heavy hearts, the Community Foundation of PEI extends its’ sincerest sympathies to the family of Mary P. Campbell, a dedicated community leader in the Summerside area.
In 2005, Mary established the J. Melville Campbell Fund in honour of her late husband J. Melville Campbell, a prominent Summerside business man, lawyer and former mayor of Summerside. Earnings from this fund provides grants in perpetuity to support youth activities in the Summersie area and at the Summerside Boys and Girls Club.
Mary passed away at the Wedgewood Manor, on Friday, August 31st. Born in Malpeque, she was the daughter of the late Duncan and Lilla (MacEwen) MacGougan. Mary’s family are now honouring their mother by changing the name of her fund to the J. Melville and Mary P. Campbell Fund. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to this fund would be appreciated.
