She spent the majority of her life in Illinois until retirement, at which time they sold their home and traveled the country in their RV. They ended up splitting their time in homes they purchased in Florida and near her home town in Michigan. She loved watching sports (especially ones involving her grandchildren), golfing, boating, traveling, crafting, knitting, doing crossword puzzles, and just loving life. Her passion was her family and friends, she brought joy and happiness to all who had the privilege to know her. She made lifelong friends along the way with her positive outlook on life and charismatic personality. To know Cammie was to love Cammie.
