Obituary for Gloria "Jody" Ramsey (Frantz)

Gloria "Jody" Ramsey (Frantz)
Gloria Joan "Jody" Ramsey, 93, of Bloomington passed away Friday, December 29, 2017 at IU Health Hospice House.
Born, September 9, 1924 in Monroe County, she was the daughter of George Taylor and Margarette Lucille (Nichols) Frantz.
Joan fondly recalled growing up in the country on Dutch Ridge. She began school at Sanders, later moving to Blackwell School where her grandfather, Charles Nichols was one of the teachers. She was a proud graduate of Smithville High School and for many years was active on the committee responsible for organizing the school's annual reunion.
Throughout her life she was a member of Rebecca Lodge and was a Past Noble Grand. She was also a member of Helpful Hannahs Home Extension Club, and the Phi Chapter of Omega Phi Tau Sorority. She was a PTA member, and chief chauffeur and booster for her children's activities during their school years.
Before becoming a mother, she worked for Bloomington Basket Company, Bureau of Public Discussion at Indiana University, and USNAD Crane. After her years as a full-time homemaker, she reentered the workforce as a cook for MCCSC (she still enjoyed seeing her "lunch line kids"), followed by time at the IU Microfilm Department, Morgan Packing, and finally retiring from the IU Bursars Office.
She resided at Hearthstone where she especially enjoyed attending music programs and working jigsaw puzzles.
Survovors include three children, Sarah Murphy (Tommy) of Houston, TX; Margaret Richardson (Ricky) of Bloomington, and Roger Ramsey (Robin) of Albuquerque, NM.
Joan was a proud grandma of Jesse Murphy (Amber), Jodie Chevez (Erlin), Rachel Richardson, Matthew Richardson, and Isaac Ramsey, and great-grandchildren, Elizabeth Murphy, Brooklyn Chevez, and Blaze Chevez.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, William G. Ramsey, and two sisters, Marcene Byrd and infant Barbara Jean Frantz.
Visitation will be 11am-1pm Friday, January 5, 2017 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E. Third St. in Bloomington.
Funeral services will be 1:00pm Friday at The Funeral Chapel with Pastor Harold Godsey officiating. Burial will follow at Valhalla Memory Gardens.
The family requests that memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Assoc. or IU Health Hospice House.
