"Together Again"Nellie "Ramona" Tucker
86, of Strasburg, passed away at Union Hospital on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 following an extended illness. Ramona was born on March 25, 1927 in Cairo, W.Va. where she was raised. She was the daughter of the late George and Sarah Gaichel Waller. When she was sixteen years old, she married John Lewis Tucker, who preceded her in death on Feb. 7, 2003. Together they had seven children. She is also preceded in death by her brother; Paul Waller; three infant grandchildren; and one infant great-grandchild.
Ramona enjoyed working puzzles, and watching the wildlife in her yard. She especially enjoyed watching hummingbirds. One of her final wishes would have been for the Cleveland Indians to be her pallbearers because she loved them so much. She loved them whether they won or lost. Go Tribe!
