Amelia was born June 28, 1930 in Valley Junction and graduated from Valley High School in 1949. She served 11 years with Polk County Health Department as a typist and helped many with her bilingual abilities.

Amelia had a strong Catholic faith and cared deeply for others. She was a great storyteller who liked baking, walking, and shopping. She enjoyed sharing good food with friends and family, and was never shy to tell you exactly what she thought.

Those left to remember Amelia are brother, Michael Camacho; sister, Rose Rodriquez; one niece; four nephews; four great-nieces; and six great-nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Joseph Camacho, and sister Connie McLaughlin.
