Fay Rosemary Campbell known as our wonderful Downey Ambassador born on 10-2-26 passed away on 7-18-13 at our home with family by her side... Fay described herself as a colorful social butterfly and that she was... I will miss her greatly as she has passed away to join her son and mom in heaven she was the last of her blood related family, but not the last who would call her family and that she was...Fay was born and raised in Brooklyn New York as a true Italian Catholic nothing would stop her. After being a registered nurse in New York City working long hours away from her son she decided to up and move to sunny California where life really began, opening up several businesses with her mom she became a great woman business owner in Los Angeles living in the fun town of Westwood. After her and her mom retired and her son went on to play pro baseball, she picked her final destination a place she would call home, the wonderful City of Downey. If you knew Fay which it was hard not to, she always had a part of New York with her but the people of Downey is what she really had a love for. Volunteering with most of the organizations like the Chamber, the Rose Float, Miss Downey, DRMC Volunteer, Rancho, Gangs Out Of Downey, Citizens for Downey, Adopt a Grandparent for teens in trouble, Sister Cities, Campaign Manager for local Downey Council and Bellflower, YMCA, Downey crime Prevention and I know many more organizations too many to list them all. Fay's love to dance and have a good time was a must, and boy did she love politics and reading the weekly Downey Patriot up to the end, even when she couldn't see the text she still wanted the paper. Fay will be greatly missed as a big part of my family, a best friend, an adopted grandmother, an Auntie Fay and a true Downey VIP.
