I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Ramona. I have been thinking of her quite a bit lately, and was hoping to get to see her again sometime. I am sad to hear that she is gone, but I am happy to know that she is with her parents. They were always such a loving and close family. She is with God now and he will take care of her.
Janet Lenz says
I am very sad to hear we have lost our cousin “Moni”. It has been 4 or 5 years since I have seen her, but have many fun memories of her. This was the perfect picture of Moni to use in her obituary. Wish I could be there for the service. No more illness for her, just peace. Love you Moni!
Rhoda Peterson Saatela says
I went to school with Moni. Our dads both gave us rides to school on their way to work each morning and we would sit and gab and gab and gab until it was time to head to our lockers, grab our books and start our day. She was a kind and good friend. I’m very sorry to hear of her passing.
Cindy Saari Keiger says
I graduated from Cambridge High School with Ramona. Since our lockers were assigned alphabetically, our lockers were always close to each other. I am saddened to learn of her death, but truly it is a passing into life. So glad she will be reunited with her family.
