Claudette Camp

A Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt and a Friend.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
Claudette Watts Camp moved to her heavenly home on Thursday, June 15, 2023.
Born and reared in Wilcox County, she was the sixth of eight siblings. She was predeceased in death by her husband, Roscoe Davidson Camp; her five brothers, James, Simon, Jr., Harold, Edward, and George Watts and one sister, Dr. Vivian Watts DeShields.
Mrs. Camp received a Bachelor’s degree in Music and English from Alabama State University, and a Master's degree in Education and Library Science from UAB. She taught at several schools throughout the states of Alabama and Florida before moving to Birmingham, where she served as Librarian at Wenonah High and Parker High schools, Youth Librarian at Avondale Regional Library, and on-line Instructor in the Library Media Program at the University of West Alabama. Her strong faith and spiritual guidance were nurtured by her membership at New Vision Christian Church under the spiritual guidance of Pastor Van C. Houser.
Though active in many professional and civic groups, her main interest was family. She was dedicated to nurturing and rearing her two great granddaughters. She was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and she loved books, playing Scrabble, editing papers, working with computers, and solving puzzles. She and her sisters collaborated on a book about the life of their mother entitled, Mama’s Journey: A Gift to Future Generations, with a Foreword by Attorney Fred Gray.
Mrs. Camp is survived by her daughters, Angelique S. Camp, Durham, NC; Monique Camp, Birmingham, AL, and Veronique Camp Montgomery, (Edward) Atlanta, GA; one sister, Dr. Geraldine Watts Bell (Milton) Birmingham; Grandchildren, Caitlin Camp, Kaya Camp, Tristan and Gianni Montgomery, Atlanta; Great granddaughters Corinne and Naima, Alabaster, AL; Niece, Mia Bell, Birmingham; nephews, Dr. Carlton Bell (Tamara) San Antonio, TX; Harrison DeShields, III, (Andrea) Minneapolis, MN; Andre Watts (Dr. Sabrina Renee) Atlanta, GA; Edward Watts, Jr., AIA (Amy) Aurora, NY; Jon Watts, P.E., (Andi, P.E.)
