Jill and I were saddened by the passing of Camille. She was the wife of Jill’s nephew, Jason Hatfield. She is a righteous woman and wonderful person as well as a model mother and wife.
Jill and my son Doug had the privilege to build and contribute Camille’s burial casket to her family. I have posted some pictures of this beautiful casket below her funeral services program and obituary.
Jason and his extended family seemed very pleased with the casket which was very satisfying to Jill. I personally know this was a labor of love for Jill… one that she took great pride in.

Obituary for Camille Hatfield
Camille, we love you…
We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved wife and mother Camille Hatfield. Camille has fought a valiant fight against cancer the last three years and has finally passed on to a better world.
We often overly saint those that pass, disregarding their weaknesses and trumpeting their strengths. Those that knew Camille can testify that she was, in fact, a true saint and living angel.
Throughout her health battles she never once, in my presence, complained or whined about her constant discomfort. Camille took on every challenge as an exciting new chapter in her life. She saw her struggles as a roller coaster ride; a refiner that is to be enjoyed and made to strengthen.
Her calling in life was to be a teacher, nurse, therapist, accountant, soccer coach, friend, confidant, wife, mother, chef, priestess, and queen. Camille is all of these and much more.
We married very young we learned everything we knew about life from each other and probably the hard way. We did everything as a team and let the Spirit guide us in all the tough decisions of our life.
Camille’s most beloved thing to do was to be an amazing mother to her beautiful children. Everything she did was to serve and strengthen them and her husband, not because she had to but because she loved to.
Camille loved the scriptures and her Savior and made it her focus to instill in her children the comfort and strength the atonement brings to us in this sometimes difficult world.
Camille is an eternal example to me she showed me the way to be a better human being even in her death.
Camille graduated from Skyline High School and attended BYU in Provo, UT.
It was at Provo in 1990 that she met her husband, Jason Hatfield. Jason and Camille became best friends and constant companions and married June 27, 1991.
Camille was born on November 2, 1971, in Salt Lake City, Utah and passed on Sept. 20, 2014, at the age of 42.
Camille is survived by her husband Jason Hatfield and five amazing children, Alex 19 (currently on a LDS mission), Katie 16, Alison 11, Owen 7, Natalie 3.
Additionally, Camille is survived by her parents Dale and Kathryn Magleby and seven siblings Kim, Chad, Cydnee, Curtis, Melissa, Shawn, and Heather.
She will be dearly missed but never ever forgotten; she will be as Natalie said the other day “Mommy is a birdie now…with perfect wings” God bless you, Camille Hatfield.
Condolences may be sent to the family at Utah Valley Mortuary.
