Ramona married her husband, James Edward Griffith, on June 12, 1954, in Pickles Gap Baptist Church. They went on to have five children.

In addition to being a dedicated and loving mother, Ramona also loved teaching children about the Lord. She was a children’s Sunday School and Mission Friends teacher for over 60 years. Ramona loved children so much that she even substituted in the elementary school at South Side Bee Branch. Ramona was also active in the Women’s Missionary Union (WMU). She was a member at Pickles Gap Baptist Church. Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with those who surrounded her.

Ramona joins her husband, James; and her parents, Virgil and Fern, in heaven.
