Bridget Campbell Obituary, Death – Bridget Anne (Barrett) Campbell, formerly of East Bridgewater and Ireland, passed away quietly on Sunday, May 22, 2022, at the Hancock Park Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Quincy. She was a resident of Quincy. Bridget was born in Ireland. Her age was 84. The 7th of October 1937 found Bridget being brought into the world in Galway, Ireland. She was educated in the public schools of the area and was born to the late Frank Barrett and Mary (Folan) Barrett.
Bridget Campbell was the devoted wife of the late Allan Campbell, with whom she had a happy marriage spanning 31 years. Allan Campbell passed away. She was a loving sister to her three brothers, Joseph, Bartholomew, and Anthony Barrett. The following members of Bridget’s family have passed away before her: Margaret, Frank, Michael, Christopher, Kathleen, and Noel. Bridget was a doting aunt to all of her nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
As a result of Bridget’s hard work in the United States, her brother Joseph was able to follow in her footsteps and settle there. Bridget sponsored Joseph’s immigration. In addition to that, she cared for her brother Michael for a good number of years before he relocated to Ireland. The majority of Bridget’s life in the United States was spent in the communities of Quincy and East Bridgewater. During that time, she never strayed far from her brother Joe’s side and never stopped being very close to him. She would also love to visit her siblings in Ireland, Bartholomew, Anthony, and Noel, and she would go there on a regular basis to see how Michael was doing.
For many years, Bridget was employed at the Carney Hospital, where she was responsible for taking care of the laundry and linens for the operating room. She devoted a significant amount of pride to her profession and spent a significant number of years travelling to Dorchester from both Quincy and East Bridgewater. Bridget had a great time at the Carney because she was able to work with her sister Kathleen, who had also been employed there for a number of years.
In 1983, Bridget and Allan Campbell tied the knot and became husband and wife. Up to the time of his passing in 2014, they made their home in East Bridgewater. After that, Bridget moved back to Quincy with her gorgeous Shih Tzu, Candy. Candy is a miniature breed. Bridget lived in Brookdale Quincy Bay for a good number of years in Quincy, and she has been residing at Hancock Park for the most recent few months. She was able to see her brother Joseph on a regular basis while she was staying there because she lived in Brookdale and Hancock Park at the time. This made her stay quite enjoyable.
Candy, her dog, was by her side every moment of the day. During her time at Brookdale, she became familiar with a good number of the residents there, as she and Candy were regulars there. She adored Candy with all of her being and would go far and wide to spend time with her. Bridget had a twinkle in each of her eyes and a smile on her face at all times. She would be overjoyed at the opportunity to sit, chat, “get the gossip,” and drink the hottest cup of Irish Tea that she could consume without risking her health. She was a compassionate and loving lady who was deeply devoted to her family and had a good heart.
