I am so sorry for your loss of this wonderful woman. Ramona was a mentor to me and a friend. She was a smiling face on my hiring committee and a supportive and nurturing colleague when I began my teaching career at Teaticket Elementary. We stayed friends and loved seeing her at Christ the King for many years. She was a generous and caring soul with a great laugh and sense of humor! She touched so many lives during her beautiful journey of life! Wishing you all peace! God bless you Ramona!

I had the privilege of working with Ramona first as my Asst Principal and as a fellow principal colleague. My memories of her are too numerous to share except she was an exceptional educator and a wonderful and caring human being. She will be missed greatly by her family and those of us who knew her personally and professionally. As she has left us to join Nick and Tony, my memories of our interactions will continue to bring a smile to my face. Ramona was truly a gem! I will be seeing her this afternoon only in spirit but will be visiting her, Nick, and Tony often. May she rest in piece with her cherished loved ones.

Mrs. De, was such a beautiful person inside and out, she was my first grade teacher and my 8th grade assistant principal. She was a friend of my family since I was in first grade I remember going to her house and spending time with her and my family. She will be loved and missed always. Sending my love and prayers to her grieving family.

Just read of "Mona's" passing. I met her when my youngest was in her 1st, 1st grade class at Mullen-Hall. I became her room-mother on Thursdays. I learned so much from her. We visited often in those years + she was always asking how Greg was doing. She had an encouraging way, not only with her students, but with everyone. We lost touch, for which I am sad, both having moved to different houses. She + Nick were the salt of the earth. May they both rest in God's eternal love. She was one of a kind. Thoughts + prayers are with her family.
