Camille R. Linder



Camille R. Linder age 85 of Oakland, formerly of Wayne, passed peacefully at home while holding her daughter’s hand on Sunday, March 12, 2017.

She was born and raised in Garfield to the late John and Rose Maciag where she graduated from Garfield High School where she was a majorette. She lived in North Arlington, Wayne for thirty-five years, Spring Hill, Florida for nineteen years before moving to Oakland seven years ago.

Camille worked for the Aramis Company in Oakland as a computer technician for seventeen years before retiring in 1991.

She met George J. Linder while on a blind date to a New York Ranger game. George was smitten but Camille needed some additional persuasion. They eventually fell in love and were married on October 24, 1953 at Saint Stanislaus Kostka Church in Garfield.
For many years she was a parishioner of Holy Cross RC Church in Wayne.

Camille was a member of the Wayne Elks Lodge 2181 Women’s Auxiliary and volunteered at the Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, Florida. She will be remembered for her calm, easygoing demeanor, and perpetual smile. Many will remember her weekly trips to have her hair and nails done and the fact that she was extremely organized. If you asked her for a tax bill from 1968 or a vaccination record for one of her children she would simply refer to her labeled plastic bins and find you what you needed.

She was the loving wife of 54 years to the late George J. Linder (2008); the devoted mother of Susan Linder of Oakland, George R. Linder and his wife Anita of Wayne, and Nancy Schicke and her husband Jim of Boonton Township; cherished grandmother of GM Linder and his fiancé Lyndsey Hentz, Brittany Linder, Jessica Schicke, Jimmy Schicke, and Jake Schicke; she was the dear sister of the late Theresa Daly (2016).

Friends may visit with the family from 4-8 PM on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the Vander May Wayne Colonial Funeral Home, 567 Ratzer Road, Wayne.

Funeral services will be held 9 AM on Friday, March 17, 2017 from the funeral home then to Our Lady of the Valley RC Church, 630 Valley Road, Wayne where a 10 AM Funeral Mass will be offered.

Interment will be in George Washington Memorial Park, Paramus.
