By on July 17, 2014

Ramona Ann Kline, 85, died July 12, 2014. She was born Aug. 18, 1928, in Burlington, Iowa, to Paul and Pearl Doemland.

The family moved to Aurora when Ramona was very young. She attended Emmanuel Lutheran Elementary School and graduated from East Aurora High School in 1945. After graduation, she worked at the Kane Ford dealership in downtown Aurora and worked at Ford for many years.

Ramona and her friends loved to roller skate, and she met her husband, Bill, at the Aurora rink when he was home on leave from the Navy during World War II. They married in 1950 and enjoyed 54 years together. Living on the east side of Aurora, they raised their children, Bill and JoAnn.

Ramona was a dedicated mother. She served as the president of the O’Donnell School PTA and volunteered with both the Cub Scouts and the Brownies. Ramona was an incredibly proud grandmother and moved to Big Rock in 1999 to be close to her grandsons.

She is survived by her children, Bill (Halina) Kline and JoAnn (Paul Wedeen) Kline; her grandchildren, Ryan (Elizabeth) Kline, Matthew Kline, Michael Kline, Alex Kline-Wedeen and Evan Kline-Wedeen. Also surviving are her sister, Ellen (Robert) Anderson and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in passing by her parents; and her loving husband, Bill.

A special thanks to Sandra, Sue and Terri, and all the other caregivers who helped her along her journey.

Visitation was held Tuesday at The Healy Chapel in Sugar Grove. Her funeral service was held on Wednesday at the chapel. Interment took place at West Big Rock Cemetery.
