Rosemary Arline Campbell

May 08, 1935 - Jan 17, 2024

Hamilton Square, NJ

Rosemary Arline Campbell (née Ryan) passed away peacefully on January 17, 2024, with her family by her side. She was born to Fred and Arline Ryan on May 8, 1935, in Syracuse, NY, where she grew up and made mischief with her older sister, Mary Therese Kelly (née Ryan). Mary Therese called Rosemary her beloved “baby sister” no matter how old they got. After graduating from LeMoyne College and earning her master’s degree from Syracuse University, Rosemary moved to Garden City, NY, to teach middle-school English. It was there that she met the love of her life, Andrew Campbell. They married on August 13, 1966, a decision she called the best of her life. From then on, the family they raised together in Baldwin, NY, was her greatest passion and joy.Caring for her family was her life’s mission, her vocation, and her legacy. She left her teaching career to care for her children, Heather, Claudia, and Drew, and she put her many talents to work for them. She was a masterful cook and a gifted seamstress. Her children treasure memories making things with her, whether sock puppets or desserts (though they dreaded hearing her say she needed to go to the fabric store for “just a minute”). When she baked, she’d give the kids little pieces of pie crust and mini pie pans so they could follow along. And whether she was cooking with her family or for her family, her meals were the stuff of legend. She fed bodies and souls, including those of many beloved nieces and nephews: Michelle, Ross, Kevin, John, Gabby, Rob, Steve, and Noreen.As her children grew, she welcomed with open arms two sons-in-law, Joe and Mike, and a daughter-in-law, Natalya. She went back to work for a time, including as an office manager at MGM Court Reporting. Yet, a caregiver at her core, when her husband Andrew got sick, she stepped away from that position to care for him, without a second thought. They moved to Cranbury, NJ, where she cared for him until his death in 1998. After his passing, she became a consecrated widow, devoting herself fully to God, her Church, her family, and her community.Soon thereafter, she became “Gramma,” a job she embraced wholeheartedly. She had nine grandchildren, Katie, Joey, Tim, Jon, Andy, Dan, Meg, Carolina, and Andrew, whom she cared for often and hugged as much as possible. To them, she seemed magic: She was the keeper of Gramma’s Magic Blanket, which made them feel better when they were sick or sad. And she was often accompanied by Gramma’s Magic Bag, a canvas tote filled with must-read books tailored to each child’s age and interests (she was, after all, an English teacher, and a self-professed “bookaholic”). Rosemary’s family continues to grow. She welcomed her grandson-in-law Martin into the fold, and her first great-grandchild was born last summer—Mary, named for Rosemary.To everyone, Rosemary offered herself: her home, her cooking, her prayer, and her advice. She had a quick mind and quick wit (often demonstrated by groan worthy puns), loved books and deep discussion, and especially appreciated conversations with those she loved. She cared about things being done well, as all could see in her refined demeanor, fashion, home, and manners. And she never stopped living for those she loved, even when illness kept her home. When she couldn’t bring her love to others, she loved those who came to care for her.This peace, love, and comfort Rosemary brought to everyone she knew was rooted in a deep faith. She had a particular love of the Eucharist and a devotion to the Blessed Mother Mary. She was active in parish ministries: among other things, she brought Communion to the homebound, mentored parents of children to be baptized, and participated in prayer groups with people who became her dear friends. She gave generously, and the list of people she kept in her daily prayers was always pages long.Visitation for family and friends will be held on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM at the Saul Colonial Home. A Wake Service will take place at 5:00 PM.Funeral services will begin on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at 9:30 AM at the Saul Colonial Home, 3795 Nottingham Way, Hamilton Square, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at 11:00 AM at St. Vincent de Paul RC Church, 555 Yardville-Allentown Rd, Hamilton, NJ.Rosemary will be interred on Thursday, January 25, 2024 at 12:00 PM at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale, NY.Arrangements are under the direction of the Saul Colonial Home, 3795 Nottingham Way, Hamilton Square, NJ.
