She was born in Patterson, July 21, 1937, to the late Mitchell and Fannie Wilson. She was the second of three children. She was a native of Pierce County and a long-time resident of Ware County. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Ramsey, a sister, Dora Mays, and her daughter, Victoria Ramsey.
She was educated in the public school system of Pierce County.
She was employed as a CNA (certified nursing assistant) at Riverside Nursing Home in Waycross and Bayview Nursing Home in Nahunta. She was a special caregiver. She was member of Macedonia Baptist Church.
She leaves to cherish her memories six daughters, Lucinda (Russell) Evans, Gloria (Anthony) Gloster, Della (Delos) Moses, Sandra (Richard) Grayson, Nikki Gardner, all of Waycross, and Lisha Hill, of Nahunta; four sons, Clifford (Carletha) Davis, of Jesup, William Ramsey, of Homerville, Joseph (Angela) Ramsey, of Waycross, and Bruce (Robyn) Ramsey, of Hinesville; a grand-daughter she reared, Chennel (Antonio) Hobbs, of Waycross; one sister, Estella Wilson, of Clewiston, Fla., and Lawrence Goodman Sr., a nephew, raised as a brother who also lives in Waycross; a god-son, the Rev. Darren Jackson, of Valdosta; 32 grandchildren; 42 great-grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and sorrowing friends.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt and friend to many. She never met a stranger. She always had a word of encouragement and a story to back it up.
She was a mother to many and used her experiences — both good and bad — to grow, to share and to teach … as an “Example of placing oneself in the center of God’s will.”
