Mae Loretta Campion, age 92, of Buffalo, MN and Sun Lakes, AZ,  passed away peacefully on May 8, 2020.

Mae was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, James P. Campion, and her infant son, Loren John Campion.

Mae is survived by her adoring children, Susan Lake [Cliff], James M. Campion, Linda Lorence [Jim], Janet Klassen [Brad] and Laurie Knese [Chuck]. Mae enjoyed her twenty grandchildren, thirty-seven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She will be missed every day by her companion and dance partner of the past 8 years, Don Peterson.

Mae was an incredible woman in so many ways. Mae loved her family and was a great Mom. Her warm, “How are You doing?” and always attentive conversation about your life, made her a pleasure to be around. Mae was fun and wise! She always projected a cheerful and positive attitude. If you needed someone to talk with, she was there. If you wanted to play a game, she was ready. She enjoyed dancing throughout her life even into her 90’s. We were all blessed to have had someone in our lives like Mae!

Mae was a great friend and felt fortunate to have so many, many friends. She will be missed by all. Donations to the organization of your choice. Celebration of Life service to be announced at a later date.

    Mae was a joy to know. She liked to share about the family she loved dearly, and always made sure she asked how my family was too. She kept up with all the latest adventures in life ; even when it meant learning about that darn smartphone she was determined to master!!!!! She was a happy, sparkly, loving gift to the world. I will miss her!!
