Camille Jackson, a dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to many, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, January 9th surrounded by those she loved – and only two weeks shy of reaching her 100th birthday.
A lifelong resident of Stamford, Camille was born in Stamford on January 24, 1922, and was one of three children born to the late Salvatore and Dorothy (Florentine) Summa. She was 99 years old at the time of her passing.
Camille worked at Noelle Day Spa for 60 years until her retirement at age 94. There was nothing Camille loved more than spending time with her family. She loved hosting Sunday brunch for family and friends. She enjoyed playing bingo with the “Golden Girls” and cards with her family. She loved to laugh and loved to dance. She will be missed by many.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Vito Summa; sister, Marion (Summa) Jackson; grandson, James Joel Jackson; and son-in-law, Edward Davis Sr.
