Ramona A. Thompson, age 79, of Maston Lake, formerly of Wyoming, took Jesus’ hand on Tuesday morning, April 16, 2013 at Metron of Cedar Springs. The daughter of Emanuel & Sylvia (Green) Elton, she was born on May 28, 1933 in Evart, Michigan. Married to Jack Thompson for over 35 years, they shared a love for antiques of all kinds – owning an antiques business for many years.

In recent years, Ramona attended church at Cowden Lake Christian Church and enjoyed crocheting, jigsaw puzzles and collecting dolls, especially Kewpies – belonging to the Michigan Merkewps Kewpie Club for many years. She loved her family and was especially proud of her grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Jack Thompson; and several step-brothers and step-sisters.

Surviving are a son and daughter-in-law, Kelly & Madelyn Thompson of Maston Lake; four grandchildren, Kelsey Thompson of Grand Rapids, Tyson Hoffman of Grand Rapids, Karissa Thompson of Maston Lake, and Lindsey Thompson of Maston Lake; three great-grandchildren, Jordan, Johana, and Ava; a sister, Winona DeYoung of Georgia; a brother, Bud & Kim Elton of Evart; and many nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at the Maple Valley Complex, 239 W. First Street, Trufant, with Pastors Lynne Kronewitter and Madelyn Thompson officiating. The family wishes to thank Metron of Cedar Springs and Heartland Hospice for their loving care of Ramona.
