Camilla M. Cormier

Camilla M. (Leger) Cormier, 73, of Gardner, died peacefully, Friday, January 29, 2021, in Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, after an illness.

Camilla was a parishioner of Annunciation Parish/ Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church of Gardner. She loved taking trips to Montana and Maine; and, spending time at the ocean. But the time that she loved deeply was spent with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren. She also enjoyed doing puzzles, crosswords, and rooting for New England sports teams.

Cormier of Gardner; three daughters, Jacqueline Enright and her husband Michael of Hubbardston, Angela Cormier of Leominster, and Anise Jaffe of Montana; a son, Maurice Cormier and his wife Mary of Illinois; five grandchildren, Justin and Joshua Enright, Stella Jaffe, and William and Adam Cormier; two brothers Marcel Leger and his wife Cathy of Gardner, and George Leger and his wife Yolande of Canada; a sister-in-law Anita Leger; a brother-in-law Norman Melanson; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

I was very saddened to hear of the loss of Camilla. She was a very caring person I got to know when she took care of my young boys at the Guild of St. Agnes Child Care. Her warm hearted nature to all of the children at the center was something I truly admired. Living in the same city until recently we managed to catch up over the years, after my boys daycare days, at Walmart or the annual Holy Rosary bazaar. She was such a sweetheart it was always a pleasure to run into her. My sincere condolences to all of her family she was a special lady. Rest in peace Cam you will be greatly missed.

I'm so glad that I had a chance to spend time with Camilla a couple of years ago. Us cousins didn't see each other very often with her living in the states. She was such a sweet and pleasant woman. We are so sorry for your loss. We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
