Camilla was born on February 19, 1948 to Harry and Bertha (Dobesh) Pieper in New Prague, MN. She graduated from Jordan High School in 1966. Camilla graduated from nursing school at Saint Mary’s. She was married to the love of her life, Donald Hartmann, for 54 years. Camilla ran the bookkeeping of the service division of Hartmann Well for 30 plus years. 

Camilla made friends easily as people gravitated to this once in a lifetime human being. Camilla enjoyed country music, benefits for cancer patients, listening to the Toms at KCHK, classes at the New Prague Fitness Center, and walking for miles around town with her sister-in-law Linda. Camilla was known to help her husband fix a well for farmers at 2 a.m. Whether it was driving to South Dakota to see Sherwin Linton, or celebrating her birthday every week of the year, she never missed an opportunity for fun.
