In loving memory of Camille Vanessa Fry, who was born Dec. 11, 1984 in Vancouver, B.C. and died in a sudden accident in Kelowna, B.C. on June 9, 2005. She was 20 years old. Camille grew up in 100 Mile House from the age of three and attended the French Immersion program in local schools, graduating from Ogden Senior Secondary School in 2003. As an outgoing and energetic teenager, she was active in rhythmic gymnastics, ballet and numerous theatrical performances. One of the highlights of her student life was a six-month exchange trip to France, where she attended classes and enjoyed the experience of life in another culture. She also travelled to Portugal following graduation with the Club Excel Rhythmic Gymnastics team. Her first year of post-secondary education was spent in Vernon at Okanagan University College. The following year she moved to Kelowna to continue at Okanagan University College, with plans to pursue a law degree. Camille’s year in Kelowna was truly special. It was a time of blossoming as a young adult. Her warmth, enthusiasm and sense of fun touched the lives of all those she came in contact with. She was much loved by her co-workers at Earl’s Restaurant and a wide circle of friends. Although her time with us was cut short, Camille led a full and adventurous life. She is survived by her parents, Russell and Leona Fry, of the 108 Ranch, as well as grandparents, and many aunts and uncles and cousins residing throughout Canada.
A memorial service in Camille’s honour will be held Wednesday, June 15 at 3:30 p.m. at the 100 Mile Baptist Church, located at Tatton Rd. and Hwy. 97 at the 105. A reception at the church will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Camille Fry Memorial Bursary, administered through the Williams Lake and District Credit Union
(100 Mile Branch).
Camille, you were a vivacious and giving spirit who
danced through life and touched the lives of many people.
