Camille Bernadette Hunter, 78, passed away on May 4, 2023, after a long, courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born August 26, 1944, in Buffalo, New York to the late Emil and Casmira Knospe.
She married the love of her life, Robert Hunter, on June 6, 1973. (This year they would have been married 50 years.) Bob and Camille went on to have two amazing sons: Adam in 1977 and Jason in 1979. Both amazing, young men live in California.
Camille’s career as a Computer Technical Specialist spanned decades. She worked for IBM, Bell Aerospace, RCA and Unisys; she also held a government Clearance. Camille was a problem-solver, a decision-maker, always challenging others to be the best they can be and not accepting excuses.
Other than her family, the two things she loved the most were gardening and cooking. Camille was a Master Gardener for over 30 years. She became the Garden Editor for Water’s Edge magazine, and later did a Gardening column for the Times Union in Jacksonville, FL. Her professional achievement in cooking was a regular contributor on All In Good Taste television show for over two years in the mid ‘90s.
Camille also made a difference in her community as a Volunteer Interviewer for the United Way’s Traveler’s Aid Society of Jacksonville.
Her legacy will be what a confident and smart lady she was. Even at times, being in control and tenacious, when it was needed. One of her favorite sayings: ”Whether you think you can or can’t…you will be right!” Camille was determined in all aspects of her family, friends and her career goals.
