It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Laura Joan (Campbell) Daley on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, at Pine Grove, Fredericton, NB. Joan was born in Stanley, NB on January 5, 1929 to the late Fred and Laura (McAloon) Campbell.
Saddened and missing her greatly is her husband of 70 years, James Gerard Daley. Joan leaves behind her five children Sean (Cathy), Chris (Sandra Browne), Joanne, AnneMarie and Mark (Beth), 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
Joan was predeceased by her sisters Fredericka Leger, Mary Kelly and Anne Gallagher and brothers Coleman and Paul and granddaughter Lindsay Erin Browne-Daley.
Joan was born in Stanley in 1929 and moved with her family to Saint John in 1942 where she graduated from Saint Vincent’s High School. She married Jim, her husband of 70 years, in 1952 and shortly afterwards moved to Fredericton. She stayed home to raise and nurture her five children then went back to working outside the home at Harriet Irving Library at UNB until she retired with Jim in 1989. They had moved to Ste. Anne’s Court then recently to Pine Grove.
Joan was a wonderful stay at home mom and wife. Generous to a fault and a very positive person. She was a devoted member of Saint Dunstan’s Parish with a strong religious faith leading to her passionate involvement in Birthrite, Right to Life, Prayer groups, Eucharist ministry and a long time CWL member. She was a recipient of the Bishop Dollard Medal for her involvement in the religious activities of the life of the parish.
Our thanks to Ste. Anne’s Court for their care. Also, most recently to the staff of Pine Grove for their care, love, and attention from the time she walked through the door.
For those who wish, donations can be made to Mother and Child House in lieu of flowers.
Visitation will be at McAdam’s Funeral Home in Fredericton on Sunday December 11th, from 2:00 to 6:00. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Dunstan’s Catholic Church on Monday, December 12th, at 12:00. After interment at Hermitage Cemetery, family will join you for the reception at McAdam's.
