CAMPBELL, Doctor Nettie Mae (née MacLEAN) (A.N.)
69, passed away suddenly with grace and dignity, at home in West Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, surrounded by her loving family on Monday, 3 March 2008. Born in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, daughter of the late Neil Charles Sr. and Catherine Rebecca (HARNISH) MacLEAN. She is survived by Harry (West Porters Lake,) the father of her two wonderful sons, Doctor David (Kathy) and children Nicole and Christopher (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), and Paul (friend Gail YOUNG, Halifax) and Mom's favourite Chihuahua Zara ROZITA (West Porters Lake). Mom's lifelong path pursuing education initially began at the Teachers College in Truro, Nova Scotia. The consummate educator, she received her B.A. (with distinction) at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, Quebec (1973); M.A. (cum laude) (Educational Technology) at Concordia University in Montreal (1978); undertook further graduate studies at the Atlantic Institute of Education in Halifax (1979-84); then received a Ph. D. in Curriculum, Teaching, Learning, Leadership, Professional and Personal Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto (2001). In the ensuing years, Mom taught Doctoral and Master students via distance education through the University of Toronto, as well as provided thesis coaching and consulting for students throughout Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. She developed and taught several graduate courses: University of Prince Edward Island (2001 and 2003) University of Saskatchewan (2002); and University of St. François Xavier (2004 and 2005). Mom was a much sought after speaker and was invited to many national and international conferences. As an Author, she published numerous national and international articles and was in the process of completing a series of six books. These were intended to be published in 2008 and another in 2009 with a focus on Care-Empowering Education (enhancing attitude, everyday skills for addressing challenges and opportunities, awakening and self-actualization). This focus then evolved into Caring, Happiness and Inner Peace which became Mom's Ethical Will. Mom's philosophy of life was 'searching for a better way'. Some of our favourite quotes from Mom are: 'Life is about Learning and Learning is about Life' 'Falling in love with life: from the inside out, with grace, dignity and respect. A fabulous life I live and love!' 'Respect and Dignity = Caring; so, to the greatest possible extent, each person is heard towards accommodating their happiness' 'Synchronicity! The Universe and I are in Sync! Our Rhythms are Aligned' Mom contributed to the community in many ways throughout her life including: working as a substitute teacher at several public schools throughout Dartmouth teaching Grades 2-6, while working in various capacities for the Dartmouth City Council and subsequently, was a fulltime elementary school teacher (TC-8) in Nova Scotia, and Quebec. Mom was very active on numerous committees serving in many leadership capacities throughout her life: President of Memorial Society of Nova Scotia throughout the 1980's, as well the Memorial Society of British Columbia in the 1990's Vice President of Ontario Institute for Studies in Education Alumni Association 1995-1998 and Chair of its many sub-committees Editor of American Educational Research Association newsletter contributing to many administrative offices within the Wholistic Education Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association, including President 2003-2005 and received an American Educational Research Association Award 2005 for her many contributions for the advancement of educational research. Mom was a life long learner who was an avid library user, often reading 20 books at a time. She loved life! Mom loved nature and she cared for the universe with dignity and respect. Mom had a certain sense of style, designing and creating many cutting-edge clothes over the years, founding the ever fashionable NEMA label. She made many early morning cruises in her peddle boat with her little companion Zara on Porters Lake, soaking up the morning sun and in the evening she loved watching for shooting stars. She was an avid SeaDooer spending many hours cruising the banks of Porters Lake. Mom was a bicycle enthusiast, hiker and instructional guide on the Toronto Islands and Hyde Park, bird watcher, gardener - who planted many beautiful flowers she also loved harp music and nature sounds. Mom loved to spend time walking with family and Zara on the white sand of Martinique Beach, Nova Scotia's longest beach. She tamed two beautiful seagulls (that she named Sue and Frankie) and would feed them everyday by hand. Mom also enjoyed country drives wearing broad floppy hats in Paul's 1930 Model A and 1937 Jaguar SS100. She cherished her time alone for self-actualization, Hatha Yoga and meditation. Recently, Mom spent many hours sightseeing with Dad, Paul and Zara all over Nova Scotia (Briar Island-whale watching), Cape Breton Island (Cabot Trail), Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Maine, and Bermuda. Mom's passing-over has created a void that nothing will ever fill - she will be missed and forever remembered. Her spirit will live on with her family and close Friends. There will be a private family celebration of her life. Cremation under the care of Donald K. Walker Funeral Directors Ltd, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (902-469-5601). On-line condolences may be sent to Memorial donations may be directed to the charity of your choice. Mom's ultimate wish was that we should respect and care for one another and work towards world peace. 'At the end of the day, know that I was loved and that you were loved'.
