Obituary for Virginia S. Cameron

Cameron, Virginia S.

Virginia (Ginny) was the cherished wife of Samuel M. Cameron; adoring mother of Diane Cameron (Will Frank) and Laura Cameron (Jeff Cappiello); loving grandmother of Nate Madison (Jackie), Mike Cappiello (Trish), and Todd Cappiello; and doting great-grandmother of Nash Madison and Charlie Cappiello.

Ginny graduated from Episcopal Hospital Nursing School in 1962. She worked as a visiting and hospice nurse for the Visiting Nurse Association of Montgomery County. For a number of years, she was the Clerk of Upper Dublin Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, She was a member of a group of African-American and White women working on racial justice.

She was involved with the Episcopal Hospital Alumnae association and worked on the hospital’s nursing archives with her friend, Thora, at the Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania.

Ginny was a constant knitter, knitting items for herself, friends, and family. Through a group called Naftali, she sent knitted items, especially beautiful baby layettes, and other necessities, to the Lakota. She continued to send knitted items to the Lakota through Americans for Native Americans.

Ginny and Sam were world travelers, having been to over 25 countries. They stood on the Great Wall of China and traveled to Machu Picchu. Paris is one of their favorite cities, and they took their grandson, Nate, there, and later, their daughters, to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

Ginny was interested and engaged in politics and current events, and was active in the League of Women Voters. She wrote letters to legislators and to the editors of local newspapers, some of which were published.

Ginny also enjoyed bird watching, and participated in Feeder Watch, a citizen science project of Cornell University. She was an avid reader, and enjoyed recommending books to her daughters.

On 14 September, the burial of ashes will take place at 10:30 am, followed by a memorial service at 11:00 am, at Upper Dublin Monthly Meeting, 1506 Fort Washington Avenue, Ambler, PA 19002.
