Jane Cameron is 100

Our oldest living DLYC member ever, turned 100 years old today, March 3, 2016.

Happy Birthday Jane! She is celebrating her birthday with her two daughters and son in law.

Jane Cameron first met her future husband Dan at a party while in high school in the 1930’s, and they started their life together in the 1940’s. That included staying at the Cameron property with the Japanese boathouse on the South Shore of Delavan. The North Shore Camerons were cousins that included Bette Cameron and Jean Cameron as wives of the brothers Scotty and Charles Cameron.

Jane was sister-in-law to the other South Shore Cameron boys, Jack (Sandy’s father), Barton (Doug's father) and Gordon. All sailed C and other boats and all had families that spent the summer sailing on Delavan. At one point in the 1950’s Jane made cherry pies and sold them so she could pay for a trip that Dan said she had to earn!

Jane, along with Dorothy Glans and Nancy MacGregor, is a member of the self proclaimed Golden Girls of DLYC which included Dolly Cameron (Doug's mother), Bette Cameron, Jean Cameron, Mary Beers, and Vivian Davies.

There is no record of anyone being a member of DLYC and100 years old. We asked Allen Buzzell, but he said it was before his time.

Happy Birthday Jane!

A grand lady who passed away February 5th 2016. Born in Springfield, IL and a graduate of the University of Illinois, Punky raised her two loving children Rebecca (Michael) D’Amato and Mark (Lisa) Ellegard with first husband Jack Ellegard in the Milwaukee area. After his passing she found a wonderful, devoted husband in Phil Mattison to whom she was married for 22 years.  Punky and Phil lived on Lake Delavan where she welcomed his daughters, Wendy (Kevin) Luttrell, Jana (Tedd) Cain and Julie (David) Navin into her life. Punky was an avid gardener and a lover of the arts. She was a longtime member of the Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club and Delavan Lake Garden Club. She loved to entertain and enjoyed life on the lake. She was a tremendous role model to her grandchildren- Jack, Liliana and Nicolas D’Amato and Madeleine, Ava and Mimi Ellegard as well as Jessica and Ian Luttrell, Mattison and Connor Cain and Josh and Kyle Navin. Punky found great joy in life and that joy will be missed by all who knew her.
