Cameron, Judith Ann

Judith died peacefully on the evening of November 7, 2021 in Meaford Hospital with her family by her side.

She was born in London, Ontario on September 19, 1936, a daughter of the late Edythe and Don McCallum.

Judith was the eldest sister of Nan Bell and Bruce McCallum (Virginia), mother of Jennifer, Barbara, Andrew (Janette) and Heather Cameron. She will be fondly remembered by Scott Cameron.

Affectionately loved by grandchildren Eric (Felicia), Levi, Eve (Ryan), Elliott and Charlie. Proud great grandma to Gabriel, Bridget and Griffin. Wonderful aunt to Mark, Chris, Matthew, Cameron and Geoff.

Mom enjoyed many Lake Huron beach days and sunsets during family summer vacations at Bruce Beach. She pursued her interest in nursing, graduating in 1957 from Victoria Hospital School of Nursing in London, Ontario.  Judith kept closely connected with her classmates throughout her adult life.  With her sister Nan, she explored the Highlands of Scotland several times to reconnect to her Scottish ancestral roots and create many hilarious adventures.  Judith was an RN by profession, balancing home and work life.  Her friends and family were the lucky beneficiaries of her kind-heartedness and warmth.  She loved to sing, play cards, First Nations drum songs, Pow Wows and the bagpipes.   Mom loved her Meaford community.  Huge thanks from her family to the doctors and nursing staff at Meaford Hospital for their compassionate care.  Please consider a donation to The Meaford Hospital Foundation or to an organization of your choice in support of the environment. Memorial donations may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON   N4L 1B9 to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

According to her wishes, Judith will be cremated and when circumstances permit, a celebration of laughter and song will be held.

If you wish to honour Judith, be kind to one another. ‘Mìle taing’

    I have wonderful memories of working with Judy at the Meaford hospital. I was a young RN starting out and she was a great mentor. She always had a smile and kind word for everyone.

    Dear family of Judy,
    Judy was with me on a Sunday in 1972 when my son, Aaron was born.
    I always remember her beautiful smile and kind manner and her excitement when Aaron popped out!
    November 7th is the date of my other child so I will think about your mum on that day.
    I know you will have many happy memories!
    I am truly sorry for your loss.

    Loved working with Judy at the Meaford hospital. When I started nursing in 1980, she took me under her wing. She was always so pleasant, kind and generous and deeply cared for her patients and they in turn deeply loved her and the care they received.
    My sympathies to her entire family.

    Donna and I had the opportunity to visit Judy very recently while she was a patient at the hospital. She was a gal with a great sense of humour. When we arrived at the hospital she was working on a puzzle and when she was searching for an answer she looked up and said “I love working on these because when I am stuck I go to the back and there is the answer” Success!!!!
    Judy was a very proud mom and perked up when she spoke about her family.

Our paths crossed many times over the years, be it helping someone in need or around town. I loved to hear about her travels. Such a wonderful lady, who always brightened my day. Rest in Peace.

    So sorry for your loss! Think fondly of your mom and remember a couple of times when my parents left me to stay with you while they were away. Your mom would put up with me (as would you, Heather). Such a lovely soul she was.
    My thoughts are with you all.

    Cameron Kids and your families;
    My deepest condolences to you all. I have very early memories of sitting under the kitchen table at the house up on St. Vincent St., listening while our mothers enjoyed a morning coffee visit on several occasions. I remember the laughter and your moms warmth and kindness.

    We have many happy memories of Judy as the super Mom she was, not just to her own children but to their many friends that were always hanging out at the Cameron home(s). She was a lovely person, so warm and fun-loving to all. Our sincere condolences to Jen, Barb, Andy and Heather for the loss of your Mom. A few years ago we had a nice catch-up visit with Judy at her apartment on Albert Street when our Dad was alive. She hadn’t changed – still laughing and full of spunk. Such a kind and thoughtful person to all she met.

    Janet and I were very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was a warm, caring and fun loving lady. Our memories go back to our early years in Meaford when you lived on the farm on the Duxbury Sideroad. While we would often bump into her over the years we saw her more frequently when she moved into Albert Place as Janet’s mom was a resident there for a number of years. She was always a very easy person to chat with and would often inquire about our family. May your many good memories be a blessing to you at this difficult time.

    To Jennifer, Barbara, Andrew and Heather,

    Our sincere condolences on the passing of Mom, Judy. We remember her with fondness from the first years of our arrival in Meaford (what now seems like a long time ago). We didn’t see as much of her in recent years but knew how dedicated she was to all of you. It was great that you could be with her in her last days. Nothing would have pleased her more. She was a caring woman, a fine lady.

    When we arrived in Meaford in 1968 your mother was a very busy young mother of 4. However, she always made time for us and made us all feel welcome. A group of us would often show up at the Cameron home on a Friday night. Judy treated everyone with respect and an abundance of good humour. It was a fun time. I am confident her wonderful qualities will live on in the lives of her children. Ken, Lilian, Allan and Kathy

    Many hours through the years were spent with Judith laughing, talking, drumming or going for a meal or seeing a show. Judith was always up for whatever was going at the moment and I will be forever grateful for the friendship we had. Dance to the drummers Judith – dance like no one is watching.

    I worked many evenings with Judy. We always had some good laughs. I remember seeing her with her daughter at an Abba show in Owen Sound. We danced to “ Dancing Queen “ and I remember thinking “ she IS “the dancing queen “. Our sympathy to her family.
