85, passed at home, Monday, July 8, 2013, under the care of Hospice. It is with great thoughts in mind that I write this. My mom wanted us all to be happy. That's what gives us the peace. It is with great sadness but also great joy. Ramona gave us strength. She was born June 20, 1928 in London, Ontario. She married William Hadley Hodill, of Pittsburgh, PA. They had four children, Philip, Barbie, Courtney, and Kevin. She was "GaGa" to grandchildren, Christine, Helen, Dylan, Sammi Jo, Kelly, and Russell and to great-grandson, Caden. She loved her family, friends, and jokes. She had the best positive attitude that kept us all in great spirits. We remember her great sayings: "Watch it Buster! The door is always open Kiddo". She always made everyone feel so welcome and loved. She said she had a great life and was ready to go any time. She had no regrets and loved everybody. Please have peace of mind in knowing that. She is missed by all very much, especially sister, Barbara Winslow of Victoria, Canada; cousins, Elizabeth Melville, Dundee, Scotland and William Gray of Victoria, Canada; daughters-in-law, Valera and Dianne; five nieces, Dale Winslow, Vikki France of Canada, Lauri, Elise and Kris of the United States; and beloved friends, Katherine Tsazrios, Indian Rocks Beach and Betty Malin, Dunedin.
