Obituary of Mildred "Millie" C. Cama (Murphy)
Penfield: At the age of 91, Millie went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, surrounded by her family.
Millie was the beloved wife of John, her husband of 25 years. Predeceased by her husband, Ed Murphy of 43 years; mother, Florence Cotton; grandson, Benjamin Goodman. She is survived by her daughters, Kathleen (John) Winghart, Carolann (Daniel) Scorza, Pamela (Jeffrey) Goodman, Diep Chu Chawla (Yogi); special brother, Tom (Carol) Cotton; sister-in-law, Mary Clementi; John’s children, Kathy (John) Vandemortel, David (Wendy) Cama, Nancy (Carl) Ast; grandchildren, Lisa Winghart (Burke), Christa (Jamie) Hall, Spencer (Lauren) Scorza, Laurelle (Cody) Burrows, Carson and Natasha Goodman, Anshu Chawla, Lindsay and Aaron Ast, Ryan (Julia) Ast, Janelle (Mike) Furlong, Jeffrey (Madison) Cama; great-grandchildren, Jeremiah, Beckett, and Remington Hall, John and Paul Winghart, Jack Furlong, Avery and Gavin Ast; many wonderful friends, bocce morning league, and church family.
Millie grew up at Sodus Bay (Leroy Island) and was a graduate of Newark High School in 1948. She was employed at Gleason Works, Eastman Kodak Company, and co-owned Murphy Sales Corp. with her husband, Ed. After raising her daughters, she returned to school and received her teaching degree and treasured her years with the Rochester School District, teaching social studies and English at various high schools, with 15 of those years at Ben Franklin. Upon her retirement, she and her husband, John Cama, traveled in all directions, including Italy, and spent many happy years in Sarasota, Florida.
Millie’s active interests were many, especially sharing the joy of being a Christian. College table tennis in particular was a prime interest and was taught by her husband, Ed, who held a nation ranking and was able to travel all over the world together. She enjoyed playing duplicate bridge and “Monday” morning bocce with so many wonderful friends. Her love of music was heard through playing and teaching the piano, cello, and oboe.
We are especially thankful to her angel caregivers, Kim Fantauzzo Spezzano, Lisa Blase, Taisha Gibson, and Bridget Wilkerson, and are grateful for the promises of God in anticipation of glorious days together with her in Heaven.
Friends are invited to call 12-3 PM Sunday, February 6, at Willard H. Scott Funeral Home, 12 South Ave., Webster, where her Funeral Service will follow at 3:00 PM. Interment at Pittsford Cemetery.
