Audrey "Dee" Camp

Audrey Lee “Dee” Camp, 86, of Sheffield Lake, Ohio passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Friday, February 11, 2022. She was born December 23, 1935 in Kittanning, Pennsylvania to parents Russell Robert and Pearl Katherine (nee Karns) Simpson.

Dee grew up in Kittanning and moved to Ohio as a teenager where she met and eventually married Donald on April 25, 1953.  They soon began their family and settled in Sheffield Lake to raise their children. They remained in the same home and she was blessed to see grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and most recently a great-great grandchild join the family. Each new child brought great joy to Dee.

Dee was an active member of Avon Lake Baptist Church for many years where she led the Woman’s Missionary Union, sang lullabies to and cared for babies in the nursery, and served as church secretary.  Dee was blessed with a beautiful tenor voice and used her gift as a member of the church choir.  She was an avid reader, enjoyed working crossword puzzles, and cheering for her Cleveland “Indians.”

Dee is survived by her loving children Jeffrey (Debra) Camp, Sandra Camp, and Wendy (Daniel) Brooks; cherished grandchildren Victoria (Doug), Vincent (Denise), Chauna (Eric), Robert (Amy), Stephen (Sarah), Jessica (Kyle) and Andrew; great-grandchildren Brandon, Justin (Julie), Nathan, Lauren, Benjamin, Oliver, Brileigh, Charlotte, Robbie, Zachary, Amelia, Winston, Lucille, Judah, Caden and Gwen; great-great granddaughter Catalina; brothers William Simpson and Thomas Simpson; daughter-in-law Edith Baumgardner; and many nieces and nephews. Dee is preceded in death by her beloved husband Donald Camp; son Russell Camp; granddaughter Vonnie Camp; great-grandson Cole Milano; siblings Robert Simpson, Mona Jean King, George Simpson, Donald Simpson, and Charles Simpson; and her parents.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions be made in Dee’s memory to College Heights Baptist Church in order to fund missions work at home and abroad, or to Victory Kitchen, PO Box 2593, Sandusky, Ohio 44871.

A celebration of Dee’s life will be held on Saturday, February 19th at College Heights Baptist Church, 980 Abbe Road North, Elyria, Ohio 44035. Family will receive guests at 10:00 am with service to follow at 11:00 am. Private burial will be in Resthaven Memory Gardens, Avon, Ohio next to her husband.
