ALBANY - Camille Walker Haynes entered into glory after an illness at Colquitt Regional Medical Center on May 30, 2014.

Her celebration of life service will be Tuesday at 11:00 AM at First Presbyterian Church with interment at Crown Hill Cemetery. Reverends Bryan Haynes and Tom Sparks officiating.

Daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt and teacher were her roles throughout her life. She was loved by all who knew her. She was selfless and eager to give strength and comfort to those in need. Her spirit was gentle and sweet. Camille worked her entire life as an educator and retired from the Dougherty County School System. She taught primarily at Coachman Park and Northside elementary schools. She also taught reading at Albany Technical College at night. She was loved by students and staff alike. Camille loved music, especially singing. At the age of 10, she made herself an honorary member of the Albany High School Mellonettes. Singing continued to be her joyful service to her Lord. She was one of the longest standing members of First Presbyterian Church. Above all titles, Camille was a devoted mother, grandmother, and aunt. She gave generous gifts and enjoyed spending time with her loved ones. She was always in the middle of her family events and get-togethers. She loved Christmas, the beach, her dogs Precious and Coco, and all things glittered or sequined.

Survivors include her son Bryan Haynes and his wife Amy Haynes, daughter Kelly Thompson and her husband Alan Thompson, all of Leesburg; 4 grandchildren, Sadie Haynes, Ally Thompson, Alayna Thompson, and Caleb Haynes; sister, Claire Bowles and her husband Fred; niece Leigh Hart (Thomas) and nephew Bruce Bowles (Yvette); grandnephews Jey Albert, Josh Albert (Amanda), Joey Albert and Sterling Bowles; and dear friend Nancy Smith. All morn her loss but rejoice in her eternal life through Christ her King.

The family will receive friends Monday (today) from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Kimbrell-Stern.

The family will be at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Thompson, 121 Pewter Court in Leesburg, GA 31763.

In lieu of flowers, donations to First Presbyterian Church, Albany will be appreciated.
