Campbell (Lockhart), Joan Grace – 87, of California, USA, formerly of Truro, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 4, 2021. Joan was born in Truro and was a daughter of the late Carl and Viola (Lawless) Lockhart. She attended Colchester Academy in Truro and spent her early years in Truro where she met and married the love of her life, the late Donald Campbell of Scotsburn, Pictou County, her husband of 62 years.

They moved to California, USA in 1963 where Doug was employed with the American Telephone Company. They loved dancing which came easy to them. They belonged to different square dancing clubs where they met many lifelong friends. They both enjoyed golfing and loved spending time with their grandchildren. Joan and Doug were a very outgoing and social couple; their home was always open to many Canadian and US friends where they enjoyed much humor, jokes and sharing tales of their travels in Canada and the US.

Joan and Doug never forgot their Canadian roots and many trips were made back home to Truro and Scotsburn. Their reunions took place with families filled with laughter, stories and with Joan sharing her great cooking recipes.

Joan is survived by her two sons, Roderick (Lisa), California; Michael (Suzanne), Panama; grandchildren, Jason, Jessica and Alyson, California; nieces, Susan (Aubrey) Ryan; Belinda (Blaine) Geddes; Joanne Newell; nephews, Greg (Cathy) Murray and many other nieces, nephews and cousins.
