Carol Campbell of Paw Paw, MI.
Carol left the loving arms of her husband Tim and moved into the protective embrace of Jesus on Wednesday, September 6th 2023 at Rose Arbor Place in Kalamazoo.
Carol was born the first child of Wayne Harvey Peter and Lois Mary Germaine Peter on November 10, 1946 in Paw Paw.
Carol was first married to John Rigozzi and they were blessed with a beautiful daughter Gina Lynn. Carol worked for The Upjohn Company for more than 30 years until she retired in 2005. While working at Upjohn, she met Tim Campbell on a blind date. They would soon marry, have a son Matthew James, and spend nearly 42 wonderful and exciting years together.
Carol's passion in life was her family and she was an avid sports fan. She loved following her daughter, son, and grandchildren's soccer, baseball, football, dancing and cheerleading endeavors and was so proud of their academic achievements. She loved traveling to different professional baseball and football stadiums around the country with friends and family, and enjoyed relaxing on a sunny beach. Carol also never met a dog she didn't love (and who didn't love her back!) and often had up to three in the home at any one time.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Tom Peter. Carol is survived by her husband, James Timothy (Tim) Campbell; daughter, Gina (John) Hayes, Hinsdale, IL; son, Matt (Jenny) Campbell, Grand Rapids, MI; four brothers, Jack Peter, San Benito, TX; Bill (Diane) Peter, Paw Paw, MI; Wayne Junior (Jerri Lou) Peter, Church Point, LA; Mickey (Diane) Peter, Mattawan, MI; sisters, Barb (Bernie) Strehlow, Otsego, MI; Sandy Kretsinger, St. Louis Park, MN; aunt, Marcia Springsteen, Crawfordville, FL; and grandchildren, John Henry Hayes, McKenna Hayes, Zachary Hayes, and Rowan Campbell.
The family will be greeting visitors from 10 a.m. until the Celebration of Life service at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 9th at Adams Funeral Home in Paw Paw. A private interment will take place at Wildey Cemetery at a later date.
Memorials may be made to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or the Kalamazoo Humane Society. A very special note of thanks to the Bronson Methodist Hospital 2nd floor General Surgery Unit whose care and compassion for Carol was outstanding.
