Carol Marlene Camacho, 80, of Rockford, passed away peacefully in her home on Sunday, February 5, 2017, enveloped in the love of God and family. She was born August 13, 1936, in Rockford; the daughter of Ivan and Edna Swanson. Carol graduated from West High School. Besides being a hardworking mother at home, she also worked as a nurse in Neonatal care unit at Rockford Memorial Hospital.

She loved spending time with her family and friends at her cottage on Rock Lake in Lake Mills, WI. She enjoyed boating and spending time at the beach.
