Erica Campbell, age 61, passed away after a short illness on May 19, 2021. Erica was born on April 3, 1960, in Portsmouth, NH, to parents Robert and Mary Roth. Erica attended Portsmouth High School, where she excelled academically and participated in the theater program, with memorable performances in shows such as “Bye Bye Birdie” and “Fiddler on the Roof.” Erica graduated from Bowdoin College in 1982. After college, she returned to Portsmouth, where she met her husband, Dana Campbell of South Portland, Maine. Erica and Dana married on March 3, 1984. The couple eventually settled in South Portland, Maine, where they lived, worked, and raised their three children. Erica dedicated her life to her family and her faith. When she was not working alongside her husband at the little family market they owned, Campbell’s Market in South Portland, Erica enjoyed reading, cooking, and spending time with her family. Over the last year, she particularly looked forward to her weekly Sunday calls with her grandchildren, who were always excited to have Nana read them a story. No one read a story quite like Nana. Erica is survived by her husband, Dana Campbell; her children, William, Brendan and Rebecca; daughter-in-law, Sue; and two grandchildren, Angus and Penny. She is also survived by her siblings, Julie Roth-Faria of Dover, NH, Jen Roth of Rochester, NH, Jess Butterfield of Vernon, VT, and Chris Roth of Stratham, NH.
