Anne E. Campbell, 90, of Syracuse, died peacefully at home on Tuesday. Born August 26, 1919, Anne grew up in Phoenix and lived in the Syracuse area until moving out to Minnesota in 1962. She stayed there for 20 years before moving back to CNY and residing in Radisson. Anne was the eldest child born to the late Jay D. and Mary Margaret Abel Hughes.
Anne was a 1937 graduate of Phoenix High School, earned her Bachelor's Degree in 1942 from Cornell University, and then graduated Nursing School at Cornell in 1943. She earned her Masters Degree at NYU while teaching first year students at the Upstate Medical Center and taking classes herself. Her career was in medical nursing and public health nursing, which she most enjoyed. She retired from the City of Minneapolis Health Dept. in 1982 and came back to CNY to be closer to her family. Anne played the piano when she was young, enjoyed Italian opera and teaching students as much as practicing her profession.
She was predeceased by her brother: Lyndon Hughes, a brother-in-law: Dale Barber, and by a grandson-in-law: Richard Kearney.
Surviving are her husband, Von C. Campbell of Syracuse; a brother Charles "Irv" Hughes of Chicago, IL; her step-children: Nancy and Von Campbell, both of Colorado; three step-grandchildren: Margaret, Ashley, and Adam; and many other loving friends and family.
A Memorial Service is planned for Thursday, August 26, 6pm at First Congregational UCC Church, 43 Bridge Street, Phoenix, with a coffee hour to follow. Contributions may be made to Hospice of CNY or to the Leukemia Association.
