On December 20th 2023, Virginia Margaret Crawford Camicia, loving wife and mother of three, went to be in eternal rest and peace, after a long illness. Although she lived her life in many places, both domestically and internationally, she was ultimately drawn to the area of her final home in SW Virginia. She was born February 3rd, 1942, the daughter of Charles Henry and Virginia Buster Crawford. She was a 1960 graduate of Alderson High School of Greenbrier County WV, and attended Montreat College. She was the beloved wife of Robert (Bob) Camicia for 58 years and resident of Franklin County, Virginia for 21+ years. She is survived by her husband Bob, as well as her three children, Debbie Camicia, Jennifer (Jason) Myers, and Bob Camicia Jr.
She had a large extended family beginning with her brother who she loved dearly, Henry (Peggy) Crawford, and all of her and Bob’s brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandnieces. She loved to see recent photos of how fast they were growing and what they were doing.
Margaret always had an enthusiasm for meeting new people, especially ones from West Virginia. Her sincerity was contagious to friends, both old and new. She treasured all of her friends from around the USA and those in Italy, England and Brazil. She was a great lover of animals and an avid gardener her entire life. Her other great love was her family history associated with Blue Sulphur Springs in Greenbriar County, West Virginia.
A Celebration of Margaret’s life will be held at 2:00pm on Thursday January 4, 2023, at the Conner-Bowman Funeral Home, 62 Virginia Market Place Dr, Rocky Mount, VA 24151
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Greenbrier Historical Society and North House Museum, 814 Washington St W, Lewisburg, WV 24901, for the Blue Sulphur Springs Project.
