Verna Audine (Dobrinski) Ramsey Obituary
Services for Verna Ramsey, former Lindon community resident, were held on Friday, March 4 at the Westside Free Baptist Church in Pryor, Oklahoma where she had lived for a number of years.  Burial followed at the Graham Memorial Cemetery at Pryor Creek, OK.
 
Verna Audine Ramsey was born on November 10, 1928 in Okeene, Oklahoma to Walter and Lydia Dobrinski, and passed away on March 2, 2016 in Claremore, Oklahoma at the age of 87.
 
She grew up and started school in Okeene and then in the 1940's her family moved to Pryor and she graduated from Pryor High School.  Verna was married to Ivan L. 'Von' Ramsey on November 10, 1945, which was also her 17th birthday.  They moved to California in 1946 and lived there a short time then returned to Pryor until 1947 when they moved to Scott City, Kansas.  Later they moved to a farm and ranch south of Lindon, Colorado where they lived and raised their family.  They returned to Scott City, Kansas in 1969 where they became involved in the Double T Hauling business.  Later in 1982 they moved back to Pryor where they continued to live until their deaths.
 
Verna spent her years as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker.  She was a member of the Westside Free Will Baptist Church in Pryor and while in Colorado the family worshipped at the Bethel Church of the Brethren of rural Arriba.  Here many fond friendships were made along with wonderful memories.
 
Also Verna loved to travel and she did so extensively.  She had been in 39 states, including Hawaii, and also visited the Bahamas.  Too, she enjoyed Bingo and word find puzzles in addition to camping.  The past six years of her life had been spent at the Claremore Nursing Home.
 
She enjoyed life and loved her family and in her own words, "Press forward to the author and finisher of this life to be welcomed into the loving arms of the Lord."
 
Verna is survived by her four children, Joe Ramsey of Scott City, Kansas; Terry Ramsey and wife, Sherry, of Scott City, Kansas; DeVon Gourley and husband, Tony, of Pryor, OK; and Dan Ramsey and wife, Annette, of Wamego, Kansas.  Also surviving are ten grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren, with two on the way; one great-great grandchild, and three sisters, Virginia Ramsey, Verlene Stoppel, and Annette Sneath of Claremore.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, two grandchildren and one brother.
