Camille was born and raised on a farm in Quill Lake Saskatchewan. After graduating high school, she joined the war effort in 1943 along with men and women from across Canada to work at the D.I.L factory in Ajax. She was one of the original “bomb girls”. The factory employed over 9,000 workers producing some 40 million shells during WW II. It was at a D.I.L. dance that she met Douglas Crozier, a farmer from Scugog Island. They were married in 1945 and settled on his family farm on Crozier Lane on Scugog Island. Camille contributed to the community in many ways, such as serving on the local Hospital Auxiliary for many years. Camille was honoured to have the hospital gift shop and thrift shop named after her “Camille’s Corner and Camille’s Closet”. For the last 2 ½ years Camille has resided at West Shore Retirement Village. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at www.waggfuneralhome.com
