CAMPBELL, DORA LORRAINE "SISSY" Dora Lorraine "Sissy" Campbell, of Roswell, NM, died on Sunday, February 2, 2014 in Albuquerque, NM at the age of 91. She was born on October 12, 1922 in Englewood, CO to George Arnold Seastone and Dora Helen Seastone. She graduated from Englewood High School in 1940 and attended the University of Denver. In 1942 she married William E. Core, and together they had one child, Andrew B. Core of Albuquerque, NM. Together they traveled as an Air Force family for 33 years. Her husband, Bill, preceded her in death in 1982. Lorraine found happiness again, and married Roy M. Campbell in 1984, increasing the number of family members she loved with his two children, Wallace Campbell of Roswell, NM and Martha Jaramillo of Las Cruces, NM. Her second husband, Roy, preceded her in death in 2002. During WWII and when Bill was away on temporary duty, Lorraine worked as a telephone operator for both Mountain Bell and Montgomery Wards. She was a long term volunteer for the Eastern NM Medical Center Auxiliary Thrift Store in Roswell, NM. She served as a dedicated a member of the Episcopal Church's altar guild in each parish she belonged to. She spent 36 years being a summer season resident of Creede, CO. There, she was as a diligent bridge player and bird watcher.
