Born April 6, 1923 to Belvina and Christian P. Holzem II on the family farm in Burns Township. She was a proud graduate of St. Francis High School, Little Falls, a Catholic boarding school for girls. After graduation she worked as secretary for the Sherburne County Attorney and later the Office of Price Administration.
She met Richard Cameron on a rollerskating outing while in high school. They married in 1944 before he was stationed in Italy during WWII and celebrated 59 years of marriage. They settled in Brooklyn Center in a house Richard built and spent many happy weekends at the family cabin in Nisswa. They were founding members of Our Lady of Victory parish.
