July 22,1940 – Dec 26, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our mom, Sandra Mae Campbell, has decided to join her husband Allan Bruce Campbell and sister Rosalie, for a tall glass of wine and a fondue dinner in heaven. Mom was predeceased by her husband Allan in 2013.
Our mom was born in Whiarton, Ontario, on July 22, 1940 to parents William “Pete” Spears and Edith “Oriel” Spears (nee Vail)
Mom married our dad Allan in August 1968 in Ontario. David was born in 1969 in Deep River, Ontario and then Mom, Dad, and David moved to Pinawa in 1971, and Barb was born in 1972.
Mom served on many committee’s over her 50 years in Pinawa including Girl Guides, Red Cross, Lions Club, Health Auxiliary, Shirley’s Kitchen, Pinawa Fire Department, CNIB and many more I have likely forgotten to mention. Mom was even lucky enough to be awarded the Queens Jubilee medal for her ongoing community commitments. Mom was also proud of keeping up with the annual Mason’s/Shriner’s BBQ she held in her backyard every Pinawa Birthday weekend after our dad passed. Mom was known for her love of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Curling and attended as many events/ games as she could.
Mom will be forever remembered by us, her children Barbara Silva (Danny) and David Campbell, as well as her precious granddaughters Alyssa Silva and Courtney Campbell. Left to cherish the memories of her are her oldest sister Elizabeth Gravelle (Gerry), her brother Harold Spenceley (Joanne), and her baby brother Peter Spears (Anne Marie); as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and long time friends.
Cremation has already taken place, and being that mom hated the winter, we will be planning a graveside service in the summer or fall 2023.
Donations can be made in her honor to the Pinawa Health Auxiliary or the Pinawa Lions Club.
Thank you to all the staff in the IERHA over the past year that cared for mom at Pinawa Hospital, Springfield Place in Oakbank, Beausejour Hospital, and especially the staff at Betel Home in Selkirk.

I’m so deeply sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a strong woman and fought hard. She is now at peace with your dad. She will always be with you.
Dianne and Edgar Boczek
Our hearts are saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing. We have missed our patio to patio chats we had over the years of being her neighbour. Farewell our dear friend.
Dianne and Edgar
She was so much fun to talk with, she will be missed.
My deepest prayers go out to her family, her children and grandchildren at this time.
Sandy was one heck of a wonderful person who will always be remembered by me, as she was the first person I met when I moved to Pinawa, in 2013. She had a hand in showing me around and getting me into some organizations in town so I could meet people and get settled.
Sandy, no doubt will be missed by all who knew her.
My condolences to Barb, David and other family members during this difficult time. Hugs to you.
Sorry to here this sad news. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time. God Bless You all.
Dear Barb, David and Families:
Carl and I were privileged to really get to know your MOM in a personal way in the last four years.
When we went to her house, there was a plaque on the inside of her house behind the front door.
It read: ‘I stand at the door and knock. Whoever hears my voice and opens the door, I will abide with
them and they with me.’ I would go to visit your MOM and knock, open the door a little and call out –
“Sandy, it’s Barb”. She would reply ‘come on in, I’ll be there in a minute’. I’d come in and have a little
chuckle as I looked at the plaque. Apparently, Carl did the same thing.
We will always remember her kindness, goodness and zest for life!
With love and respect – Barb and Carl
To David and Barb
So sorry to hear of your loss.
I have many good memories of your mom.
Arlene and Bill Boivin
Our deepest sympathy to David, Barb and the rest of her family. I enjoyed working with her over the years she will be missed.
Our sincerest sympathy in the passing of your dear mother Sandra. My husband Rolly and I are from the Lac du Bonnet Lions Club and we had many good times with your mom at some of our joint Lions club events with Pinawa. SANDRA was such a dedicated volunteer and Blessed us on every occasion with her presence and her great humor. As Barb Sabanski mentioned about the sign on her door…knock and the door shall be open unto you, seek and ye shall find. Jesus said this and I am sure that Sandy has answered Him and He opened the door that she could enter into His Heavenly home, where loved ones await. Love to your family and friends in Pinawa
We will miss her as well. LIONS BEV AND Rolly.
I am so very sorry to hear of Sandys passing. She always had a smile and a wave, and time for a wee chit chat, when I’d see her if I was visiting back in Pinawa. My sincerest condolences Barb, David, and all the family.
Shocked and saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember her well throughout my many years in Pinawa. A very active yet gentle woman.
My thoughts and prayers are with Sandys’ Family. I only knew Sandy through Health auxiliary, as we attended many meetings and conferences in various areas of Manitoba, but will always remember Sandy as a very polite gentle and friendly lady. May she Rest In Peace.
