Many knew Ramona through the store she owned and operated, Water Street Market. When not at the store, she also enjoyed drawing as well as reading and writing poetry.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her daughter, Patricia “Pat” Merrill; and sister, Sylvia Armentino.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Larry Wilson, Debbie LaCroix (Dennis), Everett Merrill (Nancy), William "Bill" Gagnon (Lisa), and Dennis Gagnon; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.
