Ouida Kay Ramey was born Jan. 23, 1950 to Garnett Underwood and Nettie Lovell Underwood.
She was her Mother’s pride and joy. On July 3, 1965, she married the love of her life, Clifton Ramey.
They were married 54 years. With proud and giving hearts they raised Rhonda, Jeff and Donna, each of which gave them their greatest joys, grandchildren Daniel, Vanessa, Makala, Isaac, Phyllip, Paul and great-grandchildren Matthew, Emma Grace, Emery Lily and Beau. Mama loved her sons and daughters-in-law with the same love she showed her own children.
Mama taught us to love Jesus and that we must accept him as our Savior to make it to Heaven. She taught us right from wrong, praised us when we deserved it and told us when our lifestyle was contrary to God’s word. Her Bible is worn and well-marked, for she and Daddy read it almost daily.
Mama was forgiving and loved everyone. If she didn’t prefer your company, it was your fault not hers, and If you didn’t want the truth from her, it was better not to ask her opinion.
She had said many times, “If I was a rich woman, I would have a home for every child that had no one to love it, and a place for elderly persons to live where they would be taken care of properly.
Mama was rich! She had accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She had friends and family who loved her and sought her counsel. Her children, grandchildren and their spouses loved her. Her husband Clifton and best friend loved, cherished and cared for her. She has been tough, strong and sassy.
Our Ouida Kay, our Proverbs 31 woman has gone to wait for us in the presence of Jesus where she is now healed for all eternity.
Her children arise up and call her blessed: Her husband also and her praiseth her. Proverbs 31;28
