Ramona raised three beautiful daughters and was a role model to hundreds of children who were in her kindergarten class at O’Hara Catholic School.
She lived life to the fullest, taking every opportunity to go on an adventure. She loved to travel, hike, kayak, camp, paddle board, bicycling and going on long walks. Visiting the beach and watching the sunrise & sunset was her favorite!
She truly was an angel on earth who was an inspiration to all those she met. She was faith-filled, pure radiant joy, a courageous beacon of light and an honor to know.
