She was small in size and large in spunk, loved to play the mandolin and played it in her church, Union Baptist, where she was a member more than 40 years. She loved to bake until she wasn’t able to do it. She was proud of the prizes she won for coconut cream pie. Her pineapple upside down cake was great also.
She met her husband Earl at a wiener roast and married him a week later. She said, “I just knew he was the one.” They were together for more than 40 years. Now she’s with him again. How happy she must be.
She retired from Zenith Corp. and worked in carpet mills until Earl’s health failed and she quit to take care of him. She also took care of her mother and sister Peggy until they passed.
She was preceded in death by her husband Earl; her parents, Margaret Ingram Ramey and Norman Joseph Ramey; sisters: Ruby and Peggy; brother, Charles; half sister, Nell; and half brother, Doc.
She leaves behind to miss her brother, John Ramey of Old Fort; sister, Gladys King and her husband David King of Greenville, S.C.; brother-in-law, Bernie Climer; caregiver, A.J. Thomas of Ocoee; cat: Baby; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family appreciates all the doctors, nurses, CNA’s, and housekeeper, Yvonne Morgan for everything they did, also Chaplin Finnell and Chaplin Green, and Pastor Larry Humberd for prayers.
Memorials may be made to St. Jude, Children Hospital, Memphis or Ruth’s church: Union Baptist, 797 Hughes Lake Road, Cleveland, TN 37323.
