July 3, 2006

Lorraine F. (Lori) Campanie, 57 of 5898 Stockbridge Falls Road Munnsville died peacefully at her residence on Monday morning July 3, 2006 surrounded by her family and friends.

She is survived by her daughter, Summer Baidak, of Salem, Mass, and grandchildren Julian, Bella, and Sebastian; two brothers and their families: Albert and Marie Campanie, of Canastota and their children Sean Campanie of Ballston Spa, Maureen Campanie of Chittenango, and Max Campanie of Canastota; and Gary and Ann Campanie of Oneida and their son Cody Campanie, of Oneida; a cousin Shirley Allen of Oneida; devoted friend and care-giver Kim Santamaria of Munnsville.

Lori was born in Oneida, on July 14, 1948, the daughter of George and Betty Spillane Campanie. She lived most of her life in central New York, was a graduate of Oneida High School and the School of the Visual Arts in New York City. After completing her formal education she traveled the world in pursuit of inspiration. Every job she took along the way served only to reinforce her dedication to her greatest passion, her art.

Lori knew from childhood that she wanted to be an artist; even when she strayed from that path she knew what she needed to be doing – creating. And she did, working in every medium she could imagine, winning awards and recognition along the way. An accomplished painter and sculptor, she worked in clay and ceramics, silver and copper, fabric and beads. She taught herself tattooing, worked in local theater as artistic director, and put her signature on the home she built above Stockbridge Falls, where she produced the Glow Festival, a celebration of mind and body arts.

All that she touched was transformed by her vision, as were the people she influenced. Lori not only taught art, she served as muse for those in search of their artistic self. She was true to her calling, a life that was both joyous and painful. Her greatest gift was in helping others to find their own voice.

She was also fluent in Bulgarian.

Her love of art was only surpassed by her love for her grandchildren, to whom she was a devoted "Gambie."

She cherished her friends as they cherished her. She will be greatly missed.

A celebration of Lori’s life will be held at her home on Saturday, July 15. Friends may call from 2-6 PM, at 5898 Stockbridge Falls Road, Munnsville.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Ironside Funeral Home, Inc. 342 Main Street Oneida, NY.
