Ramona began her career after graduation in 1951 with AT&T as a long distance operator for the a few years and after that she moved to several positions. She ended her career as first time manager in the computer room after 36 years.
After a couple of months she decided farm life was not for her, so she took a H&R Block course and ended a second career after 26 years.
In the meantime, Ramona was very active in Oakland Christian Church.
She was also a very active member of Millersburg, KY Post 251, holding many offices.
She later moved to Cynthiana with a very loveable companion, Larry Barnett. She changed her membership to Central Christian Church after a few years of attendance. Covid-19 and cancer caused her from being unable to attend. Ramona was always in good health until six years ago.
She was preceded in death by five brothers, Chester Wayne, Ronald Eugene, Jackie Leroy, Gary Albert, Roger Lynn and sister Judith Kaye Tucker and several nieces and nephews.
She was very blessed to have the Ramsey family as her in-laws and the Barnett family as lovely friends.
