She is survived by daughter Nancy Lanthier Carroll (Jerome) of St. Paul, son Clifford P. Lanthier, Jr. (Lan) of Superior; grandchildren Tammie Envall of Cromwell and C.

She leaves behind special friends Ted Brink and Bev Johnson of Arizona, Leona Zalar and Irene Enrico of Duluth, and a host of beloved friends, too many to name.
Ramona was cremated and no service is currently planned. You may remember her by making a contribution to your local arts: symphony, opera, theatre, galleries, etc.
"Remember me in the warmth of the sun,
and when the moon lights up the night;
Remember me when a gentle breeze caresses your cheek or a soft rain washes away your troubles.
Remember me and be glad for the time we shared."
