Regena “Ann” Cameron (Sticklen) of Bristol, WI was welcomed into Heaven on Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at 7:32 p.m. as her loving family stood by her side.
Ann was born on August 31, 1950, she grew up as a child in Tupelo, MS and later moved to Kenosha, WI as a teen. She graduated from Bradford High School, and it is there where she met the love of her life Cecil Cameron and married on August 17, 1968 and raised three wonderful children. Ann was a lifelong member of Parkside Baptist Church. She served there in many capacities but will always be known for the work in the nursery where she held and calmed many babies.
Ann was a nurse with a huge heart for her patients. She wore many hats throughout her nursing career and later retired in August 2015 from Aurora Burlington Medical Center. She also was the neighborhood nurse to many answering questions and helping with minor injuries. Ann was also one of the bravest women you would ever meet being the first female FF/EMT in Kenosha County where she served on the Bristol Fire Dept. setting a precedence to all females that followed. She may have been the tiniest one on the department, but she was tough and mighty doing everything that everyone else did. In her retirement, she enjoyed sewing blankets, quilts, hats, scarves and many other things for babies and kids in the community as she never wanted to see a baby or child ever go without items to keep them warm. Ann won the prestigious Aurora star for this act before her retirement. Ann volunteered many hours working along side her own grandkids in KUSD schools, and the Boys and Girls Club, sewing many items for them to keep and to also donate to local hospitals, schools and community centers.
Ann is survived by her loving husband of 53 years Cecil Cameron; her three children, Victor (Connie) Cameron, Billy (Renee) Cameron and Roxanne Schutzen; her eight grandchildren, Bailey, Tyler, Connor, Riley, Sarah, Madelyn, Alexis and Ryan. Ann is also survived by her three loving sisters, Shirley (Jackie) Kennedy, Mandy (Archie) Loomis and Mary Stricklen and lifelong friend Norma Meier. She is further survived by brother/sister-in-law, many nieces and nephews, friends and amazing co-workers.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Roxy and Jefferson Stricklen, brother, Jefferson Lee Stricklen, sisters, Etny, Helen, Dorothy and Alice; father/mother-in-law, Billy and Mary Cameron; sister-in-law, Lyda Moser and lifelong friend, Al Meier.
