She leaves behind special friends Ted Brink and Bev Johnson of Arizona, Leona Zalar and Irene Enrico of Duluth, and a host of beloved friends, too many to name.

Ramona was cremated and no service is currently planned. You may honor and remember her by making a contribution to your local arts: symphony, opera, theatre, galleries, etc. Ramona had a lifetime love of all the arts.

"Remember me in the warmth of the sun,

and when the moon lights up the night;

"Remember me when a gentle breeze caresses your cheek or

a soft rain washes away your troubles.

Remember me and be glad for the time we shared."
