Obituary of Ramona Hurt
Ramona Faye Hurt was born on August 11, 1934 to Tom and Polly Haley. Ramona entered into the arms of our Savior on the morning of November 11th 2018. She was 84 years and 3 months old. Ramona graduated from Dewar High School in 1952. She was saved and baptized at the age of 13 at Dewar First Baptist Church. Ramona worked as a Lehr inspector at Liberty Glass for 47 years where she trained many employees, including her children to follow in her footsteps in the glass industry. Ramona was known for her family dinners. She loved cooking and having everyone come to visit. It didn’t matter when you stopped by, she would make you anything you wanted right then and there. And her ham! The famous ham that she cooked every Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day was sure to be talked about year round. No one could beat Monas baked ham. Ramona loved to go to the bingo hall, the casino, to garage sales & auctions. She had an amazing green thumb and could revive any plant you had. There are trees in her yard that grew from a single twig. Monas kitchen table was home to many for coffee, food and conversation. Everyone who sat at her table was considered family. Ramona lived a rich life full of love and laughter and will be missed by her family and friends.
