FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Camilla (Cammie) Lorena Thompson, 54, went to rest in the House of Our Savior on Sept. 12, 2013 in Fort Wayne, Ind. She was born Camilla L. Castor on Nov. 29, 1958 in Rochelle, to Nerina Dapiran (Castor) and the late Joseph Castor, Jr. She was married in Rochelle on Oct. 20, 1990 to Dale R. Thompson of Lorain, Ohio.
She was predeceased by her loving and caring grandparents, Duilio and Francesca Dapiran; and her great-grandmother, Maria Dapiran.
Cammie will be remembered for her loving, generous, gentle and selfless nature and one who loved and cherished her family and friends. She loved her Italian heritage and demonstrated that love through her incredible eloquence with the Italian language and untouchable talents in the kitchen. Her love of family was palpable and was evidenced by the depth of her connection with an infinite love for her mother and her brother who adored her beyond words. She approached life with grace and class and touched the lives of all those who knew her. It was impossible not to love her and she will be deeply missed.
