Connie Campbell a longtime resident of Seattle and recently Edmonds, died peacefully on June 21st 2022, Tuesday morning with her loving daughter, Mary Dunn at her side. Connie attended writing classes with Ariele for many years at the Greenwood Senior Center, doing them on ZOOM since the pandemic. We are all fortunate to have shared time with this deeply funny and deeply giving person. Her “Happiness Is” list is just one more gift she offers to any who read it. In fact, let’s just add one more item: Happiness Is Connie Campbell.
