In Loving Memory Campeau, Patricia (Pat) July 6, 1926 – April 27, 2011 Patricia was a 52-year South Bay resident - 42 years in Palos Verdes and most recently, living in Torrance for 7 years. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, she was the daughter of Henry P. and Stella A. Susen and sister to Helen Susen. She earned her degree in Journalism from Marquette University in 1949; she married and had two daughters, Juliette and Elise. She was passionate about classical music and fine art, was extremely well read and fascinated with the Nepal region and the Himalayas. She enjoyed lively discussions on politics and current affairs with any and all she could engage. Her legacy will live on in the hearts of all she touched. The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported her during her transition. She is survived by her daughter, Elise “Betsy” Campeau, and her 3 grandchildren, Nicholas Calabrese, Theresa Calabrese and Dylan Enochs. Cards may be sent to: The Campeau Family, 587 Vermont Street, San Francisco, CA 94017. Please no flowers, in remembrance we suggest a living plant be grown in your garden. Spirit of worldly being does not end at death, we shall all again reunite. Please plan to attend a memorial service and celebration of Patricia’s life at Rice Mortuary, 5310 Torrance Blvd, Torrance, on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at 2pm with a reception to follow.
