Submitted by Graham-Hitch Mortuary
Dixie Kamp, 91-year-old long time Pleasanton resident, passed away peacefully on July 24 surrounded by three generations of her family. She was married to Everett Andy Kamp (deceased) and had three daughters, Karen MacDonough (Tom), Betsy Miller, and Donna McMillion (George); six grandchildren, Sarah Borjon, Kelly McMillion Hankins, Suzanne MacDonough-Foure, Scott MacDonough, Charles Miller, and Gary Miller; and five great grandchildren.
Dixie and Everett met in Corpus Christi, TX during World War II while Everett was in naval officer flight training. After the War, they followed their family heritage and farmed and ranched in the Pleasanton Dublin areas. Everett's grandfather was Henry P. Mohr, one of the founding fathers of Pleasanton. Their Kamps Pumpkin Patch off of Mohr Avenue was a popular place for thousands of school children and families to pick pumpkins.
Dixie, also known as Nana to her grandchildren, enjoyed reading, listening to music, traveling the world, and playing bridge with the Pleasanton and Dublin Senior Centers' partners. She was fortunate to have spent many years traveling and enjoying her grandchildren and attending their activities.
At Dixie's request, there will not be a funeral, but the immediate family will have a graveside ceremony.
