Ramona was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Mary's Altar Society. She also belonged to the Catholic Foresters. She enjoyed gardening, square dancing, raising and showing Chinchillas, fishing with her husband Mike and playing cards and scrabble.

Ramona never had children of her own but is survived by many nieces and nephews who had great love, admiration and respect for her and will miss her dearly.
