In 1959 she married Lawrence J. Kuberka. They lived in Virginia, MN for their first 25 years of marriage, then moved to Superior, WI because of a job transfer with the DWP Railroad. After Lawrence’s buy-off from the DWP they moved to Madison, WI, to be close to their grandchildren. Camilla and Lawrence moved to Sun City in December 1997 where they enjoyed the many activities in Sun City, AZ. Camilla enjoyed outdoor shuffleboard, bocce, ceramics and card playing.
