Wanda Hannah Ramage
Class of 1968
Memoriam
Entered into rest suddenly in Santa Rosa, CA on August 2, 2014. Dearly beloved wife of forty-four years of Dan Ramage of Santa Rosa, loving mother of Jenn Ramage (Steve Palopoli) of Los Gatos, CA and Wendy Ramage of Santa Rosa, and adored grandmother of Frankie Palopoli. Also survived by one sister, Alma (Lew) Hardy of Washington; two brothers, Stephen (Kimberly) Hannah and Paul (Karen) Hannah, both of Tennessee; and numerous nieces and nephews. A native of Maryville, TN, she was 68 years old. Wanda was a graduate of Maryville College class of 1968; proudly having made the Dean's Honor List and served on the Debate Team each college year. An avid member of the Presbyterian Church at the time, following graduation, she worked for a year on a special project sponsored by the Board of National Missions. In 1969 Wanda relocated west to explore the possibility of a church vocation at the San Francisco Theological Seminary. It was there, in Berkeley, where she would meet her future husband whom she wed in San Anselmo in 1970. Wanda and Dan spent their youth residing throughout the Bay Area. In 1973, they made Santa Rosa their home and added two daughters to their marriage. An active mother, Wanda put family first in the rearing of her daughters and, over the years, enjoyed many family vacations in the Tahoe Basin. She directed Youth and Children's Programs at Christ Church United Methodist, was a Teacher's Aide and then served as School Secretary at Village Elementary, 1984-1989. She also took pride several summers in bringing International Exchange Students into Host Families throughout Santa Rosa. All of this led to Wanda obtaining her Teaching Credential at Sonoma State. She was employed eighteen years by the Mark West Union School District, first at San Miguel Elementary and then at Mark West Elementary. She retired from teaching in 2008 and returned to her first love and priority, family. She was a fierce Health Care Advocate and compassionate caregiver to Wendy. To these efforts, Wanda brought complete and full devotion. A special highlight of her retirement years was the birth of her granddaughter. Wanda's sudden passing in August leaves behind a devoted family, many friends, neighbors and colleagues, who all feel the tremendous gift of her life.

Notes
has had a lot of changes in the past year. My mother's health deteriorated to the point that she had to go into a nursing home, which is still hard for me to deal with. My niece and her 8-year-old daughter moved in with me in June. The duplex Mom and I shared was too small for 3, and we feel very lucky to have found the really nice house we moved into in August. Right before we moved I had to help my beloved 20-year-old cat Zack pass from this world. Still have Maynard, who is now a 4-year-old kitty and my girl Kate, my herding breed mix is still with me. Still looking for a job, but my transcription business has picked up in the meantime. Would love to hear from MC friends....
