Syracuse, NY: Age 74, passed away on January 7 after an 8 year battle with cancer. Camille holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Costume Design from Syracuse University where she met her husband of 40 years. They moved to Rochester in 1962 for her husband's employment with Xerox Corporation where she has resided since. Camille pursued further studies in painting with master artist, Alfonsas Dargis, and later enjoyed a career in interior design.
