ALBANY – Camille A. Luciano Schner, 72, of Albany, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Camille was born in Albany, the daughter of the late Dominic and Ann Luciano. She was a graduate of Mercy High School, and of the Albany Medical College X-Ray Technician Program. She worked for many years as an X-ray Tech for Albany Medical Center, State of New York and then 30 years for Rosenberg, Zornow, Finn and Moran until she retired. Camille loved playing canasta with her girlfriends, sometimes double headers. She loved to play the slots with her twin sister Mary at Rivers Casino and was always up for a road trip to Atlantic City, however, cooking for her family was her absolute favorite thing to do (make sure you take the leftovers).

Amy, Vicki, and “Dad” Jay,
My heart is broken for you all. Mrs. Schner was like a second mom to me growing up and being at your house. She loved to watch movies from her bed and was always so nice. She took me on my first cruise, on vacations with your family and spent many Christmases with your extended family. I miss those days.. my thoughts and prayers are with you all. May she be at peace and hopefully my Dad was there to greet her. Love to you all.

Amy, Vicki and Mr. Schner- I can’t even begin to express my sorrow. I know words won’t help much anyway. 🙁 I have so many memories with mom from LONG car trips to Wildwood and Atlantic City filled with so much fun and happiness. I always felt at home at your house from Van Buren up to Amy Marie, always. My love and strength is with you all and I hope my mom was there to welcome her. Love to you all.

Holidays and family events will never be the same without her, our family will always have a missing puzzle piece with her passing.

To Jay, Vicki, Amy, Mary, Joe, Joan and Donna… Words cannot express how sad it was to hear of Camille’s passing… I just finished watching her service on line…. I have so many fond memories of 105 Russell Road… I was just a kid when my Aunt Jennie lived upstairs and the fun we had in that house are memories that will last forever… Christmas time was always a special time when we all piled into one house on Christmas Eve and waited for Santa.. Even though we haven’t seen each other, we always kept in touch through Facebook… Camille was a wonderful woman who loved with her entire being… She will be missed… May you all find comfort in the memories you all have shared together through the years……
Donna Zanella Parker
Family of Camille, Had intended to attend service but weather prohibited my travel. I tried to join Zoom and finally got in but it was after service started. I heard beautiful sentiments from a loving daughter. My thoughts, heart and prayers are with each of you for this tragic loss. May Camille rest in peace. Sincerely, Donna Zanella Parker, friend and classmate of Camille at Mercy High School
Gloria Krimmer and family
Dear Jay, we all were saddened to hear of Camille’s sudden passing. If Cindy were here she would be there with you all. She went to Florida to celebrate her grandsons birthday. Your daughter spoke from her heart and it was beautiful. I know how much you all will miss her. I will call you in a few days. Sometimes life isn’t very fair. Mom called me yesterday. Love. gloria & Sandy and family
