Joan Elizabeth Haire-Campbell

April 15, 1932 — March 31, 2020

Joan Elizabeth Haire-Campbell, 87, of Mifflinburg, peacefully entered into rest at 5:51 am on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village.

Born on April 15, 1932 in Danville, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Dershem and Jennie (Mensch) Dersham. On March 6, 1954 she married Randall W. Haire who passed in February 1977. She is survived by their children: Melissa Calohan of Friday Harbor, WA, Steven R. Haire of Grand Junction, CO, and Tracy Baylor and husband Scott of Mifflinburg, four grandchildren, Jodi Calohan Rock and Sarah Calohan of Friday Rock, WA, William Baylor of Mifflinburg, Daniel Baylor of Missoula, MT; two great grandchildren, Lily Rock and Evelyn Rock of Friday Harbor, WA. Also surviving is her sister, Rosalyn Bingaman and husband Charles, one brother, David Dersham and wife Sandra, both of McEwensville. On April 21, 1993, she married Kenneth Alton Campbell, who preceded her in death on Nov. 21, 2019.

From a young age, Joan was always surrounded by animals and that love was evident in how she cared for her own pets or any strays that happened to cross her path. She never said no to helping whether it be an animal or someone in need. She loved taking her therapy dog, Annie, to the prison, nursing home and schools. Joan was always delivering soup, cookies or volunteering with local organizations. Those that knew her personally will remember her as a caring Christian, a Mama Bear who loved her family, a true friend who was always ready to listen or lift up, and a woman with an energy level that never slowed down.

Joan was a member of the Circle "M" Saddle Club, SUN P.E.T.S, and the Gutelius House, The Buggy Museum, and the Susquehanna Trail Dog Training Club.

Due to the current health crisis, interment will be private in Mifflinburg Cemetery. A celebration of life will be scheduled for a future date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Joan`s memory may be sent to SUN P.E.T.S, P.O. Box 64, Lewisburg, PA 17837 of Asburns Animals, 291 Scrubby Hill Road., Selinsgrove, PA 17870.
