  1. Diane and John Campbell :

    We were very sorry to hear of Jocelyn’s death and we extend our sympathy to you all. She was such a strong and intelligent woman and Roxboro United Church was very fortunate to have her serving on many committees throughout the years. We certainly missed her when she moved out west but we know she wanted to be near her family. May all the good memories of Jocelyn stay with you always.
