Faye Campion

Garden Club of the Back Bay member Faye Campion unexpectedly passed away Sunday, February 18. Faye was born in Ballinakill, County Laois, Ireland, and graduated from Mercer’s Hospital, Dublin as a registered nurse.  She worked for many years at Massachusetts General Hospital and at Massachusetts Eye and Ear.  She was a fixture at the gym, as many of our members can attest.  We found a lovely picture of Faye from a past Twilight Garden Party event – she was always a supporter. Faye will be buried in Ireland, but we will remember her fondly here in Boston.
