Camille Annette Kagy, born October 3, 1938 to Camille Anthony Metrailer and Lucille Pauline Frederick Metrailer, passed away peacefully on July 7, 2019. Annette was a graduate of Mount Saint Mary Academy and received her Medical Technology Certificate in 1958 and her Bachelor of Science degree from Little Rock University in 1960. She married John Kemp Kagy in 1960, and they were the parents of three children: John Jeffrey Kagy of Boston, Mass., Camille Anne Chambers of North Little Rock, and Matthew Kemp Kagy of Little Rock. Predeceased by her husband and parents, she is survived by her three children; brothers, Fred Metrailer (Robyn) of Tulsa, Albert Metrailer (Kathy) of Dallas, Jim Metrailer (Vickey) of Little Rock; and her five grandchildren whom she adored: Bradey Chambers, Zachary Kagy, Michael Kagy, Kemp Kagy, and Samantha Kagy. Annette was an accomplished fashion model, skilled and caring medical technologist, teacher, and a volunteer at Arkansas Hospice. She was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and participated in a search and rescue mission in that capacity. She was a naturally gifted artist whose preferred medium was pastel chalk on sandpaper. Her ability to utilize lighting and its effects on a scene in a painting was remarkable and unique. She created innumerable paintings and pottery pieces during her active years. Annette was an exceptionally strong and intelligent lady whose grace shone brightly in every situation. The most important role in her life was being a loving wife to her husband and caring mother to her children. She loved her family dearly and gave of herself freely and happily.
