Deborah joined the counselor staff at Camp Krem in the early 1980’s and continued working several summers, including a stint as Travel Camp Director.
Originally from Wisconsin, she relocated to San Francisco and volunteered as a counselor during the Year-Round Program as well.
She was easily recognizable to fellow staff and to campers alike, by her trademark short blonde hair, her bright smile and energetic spirit.
At Camp, she met her future husband, Andy Mioduchowski, a veteran counselor who had been with camp since the mid-1970’s.
Deborah was a vibrant woman, embracing life and all the adventures that come with it. On July 19, 2016, at age 59, Deborah passed away at home in Lahaina, Maui (Hawaii), after battling pancreatic cancer.
Andy was with her and cared for her every need until the end.
Ralph was an indispensible part of the team Alex Krem Sr. brought together in the early 1960’s to build Camping Unlimited into the organization that it is today.
Volunteer bus driver, adult in charge of numerous Camp trips, father of four Camp counselors, host for many counselor meetings at his home, and Board Member were just a few of his roles over his years of service. Campers and counselors were even known to stop by his Berkeley home just to visit while passing by. As well as his four children who became very involved with Camp, his son-in-law and two of his daughers-in-law are former Camp counselors and his eight grandchildren have all visited Camp many times. Sadly, on July 20, Ralph passed away at age 86, after a very recent diagnosis of lung cancer, in hospice at the El Cerrito home of one of his sons.
