She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and was a Tar Heel through and through. She later received her master’s from North Carolina State University. She moved to North Carolina in 1980, residing prior to that in many states, including Oregon, California, New Jersey and New York.

She was a very active church member and attended both the House of Worship in Artesia and New Beginnings Church of God in Carlsbad. She faithfully taught Bible study in several locations in Eddy County.
Camille was very active in her community and was a freelance artist. Her love in life was her grandchildren and helping them succeed in life and their studies; she dedicated many hours to helping them, either in person or via phone or internet. She loved her grandchildren and family, and cherished being able to spend as much time as possible with them all.
