Camille Ann Kucinski, 68, of Gig Harbor, passed away Wednesday, March 16, 2016, from complications associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). Camille was born to Charles and Beverly Haselwood, March 21, 1947, in Bremerton, WA. She graduated from West High School in 1965 and went on to attend the University of Washington. She married Gary Kucinski, also of Bremerton, in 1968 and they lived together in various locations throughout western Washington until Camille's passing. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2016, at 1:00 PM at the Fox Island Alliance Church, 655 6th Avenue, Fox Island, WA. Camille worked in the Children's Shoe Department of Nordstrom for 23 years until her disease forced her to retire in 1996. She loved her job and interacting with children, their moms & dads and other employees. Camille enjoyed cooking, traveling, visiting with family & friends, scrap booking and, most of all, her grandchildren. After retirement she stayed as active as her disease would allow. She volunteered at the Crisis Pregnancy Center. She was an involved member of the Fox Island Christian and Missionary Alliance Church and was deeply connected with Bible Study Fellowship. Camille is survived by her husband: Gary; two children: Christy Kucinski of Kirkland, WA; and Julie Mullen of Gig Harbor, WA. She is also survived by six grandchildren: Clare, Jackie and Kenny whose mom is Christy; and Ryan, Megan and Luke whose mom is Julie. In addition, Camille has two surviving sisters: Stephanie of Port Orchard, WA and Andrea of Peoria, AZ as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and one aunt. Her youngest sister, Lori, passed away several years ago. Camille was a gorgeous woman both outside and inside. She was absolutely delightful to be around. She had an irrepressible sense of humor and an infectious laugh. Everyone loved Camille's straightforward approach to life, her direct questions and comments and her generous distribution of compliments. Anyone who interacted with Camille came away from the experience feeling good about themselves. She fought her disease fiercely for 21 years with strength, courage and dignity, never allowing it to suppress her joy for life. Indeed, she was truly a lovely lady in every way. We miss her enormously. The family feels that people are welcome to express their love for Camille in whatever manner they wish.
