Jane Shirley Knox Campbell affectionately known as Jean. Jean died peacefully on February 19th, 2024 in her 102nd year, at Highgate Residence, surrounded by her loving family and caregivers.

Jean was born in Glasgow, Scotland and immigrated to Hamilton as a youngster. Jean lived a vibrant life filled with a passion and energy for people, friends, family. She was an avid card player, party organizer and host, golfer, curler and traveled extensively. For four decades, she worked at Eaton’s and was an active member of Erskine Presbyterian Church. Jean embodied commitment to both her work and community.

Jean’s generosity extended beyond her professional and social spheres; she was devoted to supporting various local charities, leaving an indelible mark on those in need.

Jean is predeceased by her parents Tom and Jean, and her brother George. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones, Paul and Hannah Jamieson, their children Colin and Kyra Jamieson, along with their families—Maddie, Misael, Alexia, and Marcus. She will be missed by her Australian family, Jan and Fay, and Margaret in Scotland.

The family extends heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate staff at Highgate Residence for their exceptional care.

Jean has always been a part of her Australian family's life via photos & cards for many years & then a visit to meet in person In Melbourne in the 1990's. In 2018 we were fortunate enough to travel to Canada & to stay with Jean. She was the perfect host & we loved every minute of our stay. Her enthusiasm & positive attitude was infectious, her energy at 96 was unbelievable & her love for life had to be admired!
We'll miss our phone calls with her, especially her "Jean Campbell signing off with love" at the end of every call, that always made us smile.
Jean was well loved & cared for by Hannah & Paul Jamieson & family, they meant the world to her.
A long life well lived, a true treasure.
Love from Jean's Australian family
Jan, Fay, Liz Geoff & families
