  • Phyllis L. Campbell, 101

    Wenham — Phyllis L. (Pickard) Campbell, beloved wife, mother and mother-in-law, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, March 27, 2014, two days after her 101st birthday. Born in Ipswich, she was the younger daughter of Hallett D. Pickard and Clara N. Spencer. She graduated from Manning High School in Ipswich, and was the last living member of the Class of 1930. She attended a two-year business program at what is now Salem State University, known at the time as Salem Normal School. She worked for the Hayward Hosiery Co. as a bookkeeper, until her marriage in 1940 to Wendell H. Campbell. After moving to the shores of Wenham Lake, she shared 48 happy years of marriage with Wendell as a stay-at-home mother. She was a perennial volunteer for the Wenham Village Improvement Society and served as its assistant treasurer for 43 years. Phyllis was an accomplished crafter in the art of crewel and a master knitter, making over 600 hats for friends and homeless shelters in New Hampshire. She was an avid gardener, and loved sharing extra vegetable crops with friends. Seeing Phyllis pushing a mower, or hoeing the rows was not unusual. Phyllis and Wendell divided their time between Wenham and their New Hampshire house. Even at 100 years of age, she would drive to New Hampshire to tend the gardens, or shovel snow off the roof. Phyllis was a graceful skier, winning a senior race in Canada at age 91, and continuing to ski into her 99th year. When she wasn’t skiing, she and her sister, Barbara, spent many of their winters camping in the Virgin Islands. She loved people and opening her home to friends. A devoted member of her church, she is remembered by so many as generous, gregarious, funny, and a warmhearted friend to all. Phyllis believed that hard work was its own reward and boredom was not in her vocabulary.
