A few Words of Love to Faye Campbell


It takes guts to show up anywhere and become who you really are, and that to me is Faye Campbell. I had never met Faye, the councilwoman of Beckwith, until earlier this year. Now each time I see her she makes my day–and when I don’t see her right away at events, like yesterday, I am the first to ask,

“Anyone see Faye yet?”.

Of course word on the street is she will be anywhere where there are OPP officers and Mounties in uniform. So keep that in mind when you are planning your next event!


Her heart is kind, her spirit brave, and you better get out of her way when she is on a mission. Heck, this gal even drives a tractor and plows the fields. When I grow up I want to be just like her.


They say sometimes courage in women is often mistaken for insanity– well Faye, you should have been locked up years ago. I am not going to list her many achievements here as I am sure I would run out of room and would hate to have forgotten a few. You will never do anything in this world unless you stand up to obstacles and that to me sums up Faye Campbell. A message to all out there–what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  I love you Faye Campbell.
