We met Irene Ramey through her son Ken Ramey and his wife Jean about 20 years ago at their Baptist Church in Claycomo, MO for a cantata.
Her son Kenney and I were close friends as we worked together at Wire Rope and later on at A.T.K. in Lake City in Independence, MO.
Ken was always good to his mother mowing her yard many other things, including taking her to play bingo (which she was very good at).

Lorene and family,
I always enjoyed Irene and her country wit when she rode with us to Henry's for the jams. Steve Bode also shared fond memories and kind words about her when I let him know of her passing.
She is reunited with many of her loved ones now.
I'll see you at the visitation.
