Winnebago - Camilla G. Lightfoot, 91, of Winnebago, died Sunday, December 14, 2014, in Wesley Willows, Rockford. Born February 1, 1923, in Rockford, the daughter of Carl and Margaret (Foote) Glenny. Graduated from West High School, Rockford, in 1941. Camilla married Duane Russell Lightfoot on October 27, 1943, in Rockford. She was a bookkeeper for more than 22 years at Winnebago Farm Services, Rockford, where she enjoyed interacting with all their clients. Camilla was an active member of Burritt Community Church and its Women's Society. She was a wonderful wife and homemaker, and her favorite pastimes were fishing, gardening, cooking and playing cards. Her late husband, Duane, built a lake on the farm in 1969, where Camilla spent many happy hours catching bluegills and catfish and hosting picnics with him. She had a delightful personality and sense of humor that captured the hearts of all who knew her.
