Since Camille's father, Bernard C. Ott was a Navy veteran and Camille was a minor child, she is buried at the Ft. Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis.

Camill and I became the best of friends when she came to White Bear as a junior. She was very shy, very cute and the guys "drooled" over her!  She didn't know anyone, so I asked her to spend the night with me one of the weekends after school started.  We had a great time and that was when she told me she had leukimia. My family and I got to know her parents, Bernie and Mama Camille (Camille was called little Camille) very well. Right before she passed, I was going to go to Indiana to visit family for a couple of weeks, and I told her I would rather stay home and be with her because I knew she was really sick.  She said that I should go and she would see me when I got home.  She passed away just as I got home and I was devestated. I remember going to their house and standing out in the yard by the roses and her dad came up to me and told me that she would always be with us and not to blame myself for being gone. He took me into her bedroom and told me to pick out whatever I wanted from her jewelry case. He gave me 2 of her rings and her jewelry case, and I still have her rings and a picture she gave me with a note on the  back. When I run across the picture, I think of her, so small and lalid to rest in her prom dress from New Jersey, so her mom could put long white gloves on her to hide all the marks from chemo.  Rest well, Camille and know I do think of you after all these years.  She was re-intered in New Jersey when her parents moved back.

Oh Patty, what a beautiful memory you shared with us, thank you!

I feel Camille was the epitome of the definition of the word "gentle." She was all of the words you described her with, I was one of those guys that was bowled over by Calmlle's beauty. And then getting to know her and to discover that inside whe was even MORE beautiful was definitly part of the joy she brought to people! 

What a splendid connection  to have two of her rings to slip on your hand and recall the friendship. I remember the two of you being together most of the time. Even after all these decades Camille is strongly in our hearts and memories, such lovely memories they are!

Thank you Jim for the very kind words about Camille. She was a bright spot for a short time with us, but yes, she'll be remembered for her smile and gentleness.
