Camillia loved to travel and along the way she met many friends. She was avid at beading and making outfits for her husband, children and grandchildren. Camillia was an aspiring Facebook addict leaving her facebook open because she didn’t know how to log out. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren dance and spending quality time with them. Camillia had adopted grandchildren who she loved very much and always thought of them on their birthdays and Christmas. When not spending her time talking on the phone with a friend or relative, she never missed an episode of Days of our Lives. She was a very caring and loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She always kept in touch with all of her nieces and nephews, and would always give them lectures when needed.
