Della Marie (nee Campbell)
March 1, 1928 – March 7, 2013
Della passed away at the Stettler Hospital on the morning of March 7th, at the age of 85 years. Della lived a full and rewarding life, rich with love and kindness. She was deeply devoted to her family and committed to her community. She applied her strong work ethic to every part of her life, including the family farm and her 33 year career with the County of Stettler. Della was a generous and thoughtful person, who was always eager to lend a hand. As a long time resident of Stettler, she volunteered her time with the Pilot Knob Ladies Club and with the Rotary Club through the United Church Women. In retirement, she remained active on the farm and spent her time visiting with neighbours and friends. During the summer, she enjoyed maintaining her yard and caring for her flower garden. Della was especially proud of the farm and home that she built with Albert, her husband of 57 years. Her life was enriched by their children Marian and Allan, and by her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Della will be deeply missed and forever remembered by her daughter Marian Nagel of Stettler, son Allan (Cynthia) Nagel of Millet, sister Doreen Hammond of Calgary, brother Frank (Jean) Campbell of New Westminster, sister-in-law Hazel Brooks of Bashaw, granddaughters Roni (Dave) Haugen of Calgary and Cara Nagel (Chris Smith) of Saskatoon, great grandchildren Mason Vinthers and Davis Nagel Haugen, along with numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and neighbours.
Della was predeceased by her parents Margaret and Harold Campbell, sister Betty and brother-in-law Kenneth Welty, brother Billy Campbell, brothers-in-law Otto (Margaret) Nagel, Bill Hammond, nephew Ian Campbell and in 2004, by her beloved husband Albert.
A funeral service to celebrate the life of Della will be held at the Stettler Funeral Home on Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 at 1:00, with a luncheon to follow. As an expression of sympathy and in loving memory of Della, donations may be made to the Stettler Health Services Foundation – Palliative Care Unit or a charity of the donor’s choice.
The Nagel family wish to express their heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to Della’s care and well-being over the past months. Hospital visits, help on the farm, phone calls, flowers, and the compassionate care that she received at the Stettler Hospital was very much appreciated.
