As a little girl, I have so many memories of going to Pittsburgh every year for Thanksgiving. We had our own private complete turkey dinner in our own private room at the Redwood Inn with Sylvia as our waitress. One year, Cousin Penny brought a chimp from the zoo called Geraldine. Cousin Scott reminded me that Geraldine joined us in a high chair one year. The next day, we would have spaghetti at Aunt Pam's and Uncle Jim's, and on Saturday, we went to Gimbel's to go Christmas shopping. That night, we would wrap all the presents and come home with a station wagon filled with gifts. It was a magical time.

Aunt Joan and Uncle Don's home on Dan Drive was very special. In the basement, it was like going to a zoo. Animals, reptiles, snakes, a raccoon...they were everywhere. There was a candy drawer that we raided every year. And it wasn't little pieces of candy…it was big bars of candy! The home was several stories, and the top floor had a huge train set up. Sherlock Holmes memorabilia was everywhere.

They were so proud of their children, Penny and Scott. The thing that everyone will always associate with the Ramsey family is their love for animals.

Aunt Joanie was the great communicator of the family. She was the one to always send cards and letters. She taught us that we should do that, too. She always signed them Love Aunt Joan and “Buddy” or “Nellie” or whatever pets she had with her at the time. She was always so funny and charming and soft-spoken, yet larger than life.

In her later years, she had so many wonderful friends that lived in her condominium complex. It was like a sorority, and they all helped one another. Aunt Joan will always be in our hearts. We won't be able to go to a zoo or zoo gift shop or hold an animal without thinking of her. We miss you Aunt Joan and now you are at a better place dancing with Uncle Don. We love you! Love your niece, Laura.

Penny, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom must have been a wonderful person. Hugs and sympathy to you.

Pam, Jim and family...As your sister Joan dances with the angels, may you find comfort in your memories. There are no words but hugs.

Was so sorry to hear of Mrs Ramseys passing, she was a very sweet and nice lady. May her family find comfort in this sad time.
