Camille Armstrong Selsor Jones
February 1, 1932 – September 1, 2021
Camille Armstrong Selsor Jones, age 89, a resident of Camden, Alabama, died at her home surrounded by her family on September 1, 2021. She was born February 1, 1932.
She was a graduate of Wilcox County High School. Following marriage and the rearing of three children, she earned a degree in nursing and served as a nurse in Camden and in Pensacola, Florida. She served two short terms in Pakistan before going there in 1994 to serve on the mission field in a variety of ministries, including teacher at the Nancy Fulwood Hospital School of Nursing, manager and hostess of the Pakistan guest house, and part-time homeschool teacher for the children of missionaries. Until her return to Alabama in 1997, she served in many other ways to help relieve the loads of Sahiwal-based missionaries.
Camille was a lifelong member of the Camden Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. While living in Pensacola, she attended McIlwain Presbyterian Church, where she found her second church family. She trusted in the Lord with all her heart, and surely in His presence she has found fullness of joy.
