Obituary for Beverly Maureen McLeod (Campbell)

March 4, 1945 - March 17, 2023

Maureen passed away peacefully at Cowichan Hospice House at the age of 78.

She was born in Wadena, Sask March 4, 1945. The family moved to Prince Albert in 1952 and spent the summer months in Waskesiu until 1963. She attended King George Public School and then Queen Elizabeth School in 1958, followed by Prince Albert Collegiate Institute 1958-1963. Maureen moved to Minneapolis Min. USA for a two year lab technician program. When she graduated she moved to Saskatoon in 1965 and married Andy McLeod in August 1966. She was an excellent golfer and was on four Saskatchewan Junior teams. The teams consisted of two girls, and she won her position on the team four times. Her brother fondly remembers how proud Andy was of her amazing golf ability and recounts when a big strong guy would join them to play at Mount Brenton Golf Course, the guy would have no idea how good Maureen was and when she consistently out drove him he was very humiliated!

Mom was always supporting her girls in their activities and never missed driving the team or watching various sports teams they played on. She continued her support to the grandkids and watched many hockey, baseball, lacrosse and synchronized swimming events. She was very proud of her family, as her friends will fondly remember. She was a proud Canucks fan as well as an avid reader. She read a wide variety of books from historical drama to current newsmakers.

As a mother, daughter, wife, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend Maureen will be remembered lovingly by all who knew her. Maureen leaves behind her two daughters and their families Karen, Clint and Colton Steigenberger and Andrea, Anna, and Nathan Akhurst. Also dear to her heart were her brother Bob Campbell and his family, brother in law Jerry McLeod (Judi) and their family, cousin Brian McLeod (Michelle) and their family, as well as her son in law Drayson Akhurst and many treasured friends.

The family would like to give special thanks to Dr Kate MacDonald as well as all the doctors and nursing staff at Somenos Medical Clinic, Cowichan District Hospital and Cowichan Hospice House for their commitment to personal health care and the truly caring way that mom was looked after throughout her healthcare journey. We also would like to the thank all of the incredible staff at The Meadows who became friends, as well as provided care to mom in her home.

Mom will be dearly missed but we are at peace knowing that she and Dad will be together again.
