Ramona Ramirez

HAMMOND, IN - Ramona Ramirez, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, born and raised in Moca, Puerto Rico, and resident of Hammond, IN, passed away surrounded by her loving family on November 5, 2019 of natural causes at the age of 98.

Ramona was preceded in death by Geronimo Ramirez her husband, Ana Luz Ramirez her daughter, Luis Alfredo Ramirez her son, and Chris Ramirez her grandson. Ramona is survived by her children Jorge Luis (Connie) Ramirez, Carmen (Eladio) Ramirez, Georgina (Angel) Ramirez, Felix (Maria Elena) Ramirez, Mary (Israel 1950-2017) Ramirez, Joe (Lisa) Ramirez, Johnny (Mary) Ramirez, Michael (Diana) Ramirez, Susie Ramirez, Lulu (Johnny) Perez, Tommy (Roberta) Ramirez, Stevie Ramirez Lopez, Toni (Edwin) Giboyeaux, Elaine (Oscar) Martinez, Daniel (Arcilia) Ramirez, and her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchild, and extended family Mary Beth Herr and John Herr III. Ramona was born on Christmas Day, December 25, 1920, in Moca, Puerto Rico, to Gregoria Roman and Domingo Soto. It was in Moca where she met her husband Geronimo Ramirez and fell in love, then married in 1944. In 1950, they moved their lives to East Chicago with their three children in hopes to create a better life. Together they raised seventeen loving children. Ramona dedicated her life to her husband and family. She was a devout Catholic, and was rarely found without a rosary in her hand. She loved to sew, especially for her family, and no one could leave her sight until their bellies were full. Her love moved mountains.
