Ramona, affectionately known as “Sister or Mona,” joined the Byrd Grove Baptist Church in Kents Store at an early age. She remained a member of Byrd Grove until her body became frail by illnesses she battled for several years. She was a quiet, kind-hearted and loveable person. She loved her grandchildren and enjoyed planning summer excursions to various vacation places. She was a great organizer and coordinated all the trips for the entire family to enjoy.
