It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, wife, and daughter, Raylene Ann Morykot, age 47, after an 18-month battle with cancer. Raylene is survived by her husband, Paul Campbell, and her three children, Owen (18), Abigail (14) and Isabella (6), Balls Creek; her parents, John and Deanie (Youden) Morykot, Sydney; her siblings, Donna (Eric Burchill) Morykot, Halifax; and Richard (Tracy Henderson) Morykot, Sydney; her mother-in-law, Odille Campbell, Pondville; and her husband’s siblings, Sean (Daphne) Campbell, Pondville; Joel Campbell, Halifax; Marc (Christina) Campbell, Texas. She was predeceased by her father-in-law, Bill Campbell. Raylene is also survived by her nieces and nephews, all of whom had a special place in her heart. Raylene grew up in Port Hawkesbury and Sydney. Her schooling took her to the University of New Brunswick (B.Sc.) and then Springfield University (M.Sc. (OT)) in Massachusetts. She worked as an Occupational Therapist first in Guelph, ON before returning with Paul and Owen to Cape Breton where she worked with the Red Cross. Raylene was a competitive athlete, with a lifelong love for her sports, volleyball and badminton. After playing volleyball for the University of New Brunswick and badminton for Team Nova Scotia at the Canada Games in Grande Prairie, she spent many years coaching Owen and Abi in both sports while teaching Izzy in their yard (and living room). Owen, Abi and Izzy were the sunshine of her life. Raylene loved spending time in Marble Mountain with all of her family and friends, especially while thumping everyone at tarabish in the kitchen or at badminton on the lawn. Raylene will be so missed; she was the best of us all.

I was very touched by the Tribute Movie, Condolences and Memories expressed by family and friends on the loss of Raylene... a testament of a very special lady. I did not know the Morykot Family. In some way I can relate to their sorrow and wanted to express my condolences. I lost a sister at age 44 leaving four children behind, the youngest age 6.
Thoughts and prayers are with the Morykot Family.

I first met Raylene as a young teenager and had the pleasure to get to know her during visits to Marble Mountain and then when she moved to Guelph. We spent lots of time together at her and Paul's home in Guelph playing with our young children, sharing meals, and simply enjoying life. She was always so welcoming and I appreciated how patient and not fussed she was about fancy details - it was always "come as you are". She was a force - a strong loving mother, wife and friend. Sending all my love and care to the Campbell and Morykot families.

I went to junior high and high school with Raylene. She was always nice to me and always said “hi”. I remember her playing volleyball. It appeared to me that she really loved playing. I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with her family and friends at this very difficult time.
