Ramona Hernandez

30 August 1923 - 19 December 2013



Ramona, known to her friends and family as "Mama Moncha", was born August 30, 1923, in Camuy, Puerto Rico to Pablo Santiago and Ceferina Velazquez Roman. Ramona was one of 10 siblings. In 1957 she was reunited with the love of her life Mr. Vicente Hernandez and in 1960 she joined him in holy matrimony at Our Lady of Victories Parish. Together they raised five children. Family and friends were Ramona's passion and delight. Ramona was a lifelong member of Our Lady of Victories Parish where she met many of her dearest friends. She was a member of the Legion of Mary Society, Sacred Heart Society of Women, and a state Cursillista. She voluntarily provided care for the sick in her community. She loved to entertain and frequently had garden parties at her house. As a past time, Ramona would enchant others with her riddles and rhymes and witty humor unique to her personality. The latest garden party was this past summer when she celebrated her 90th birthday. Ramona is preceded in death by her parents, Pablo and Ceferina; her husband, Vicente; and two daughters, Iraida and Elizabeth Hernandez. Ramona is survived by her daughter, Carmen Hernandez; sons, Jose and Vincente Hernandez; five grandchildren, Lizzette Allen from Fort Riley, Kansas, Ariel Hernandez, Charisse White and Bruce White from Bell Aire, Ohio, and Christina Hernandez; and three great grandchildren, Alyiah, Kai'ry and Na'Lei Allen from Fort Riley, Kansas and a number of other relatives and close friends. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all of those who cared for her during these last few months.

To the family and friends, I'm truly sorry for your loss. In reading the obituary I can tell Ramona was a wonderful lady that loved to help people. I just wanted to share a few scriptures with you that have brought me comfort in the past. Revelation 21:4 says, "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God is going to fulfill this promise very soon and when he does we will get to see our loved ones again that we have lost. John 5:28,29 says, "do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." I hope these verses can bring you a measure of comfort. With deepest sympathy, Breanne
