Ramona was survived by her life partner of over 17 years, Dana Peterson of Cottage Grove, daughter Kara Archer, sister Becky Friend and niece Danna Olsen.
Ramona was soft spoken in public, but for her friends and family that got to know her, she had a heart of gold, was loving, caring, and would do anything to help them out.
She had a passion for and enjoyed riding, training, and spending time with her three Arabian horses. She loved the outdoors and loved fishing, hunting, camping, picnics at Sweet Cheeks Winery, enjoying family and friends. She also enjoyed photography, going to horse shows and taking drives up the McKenzie River with the top down on her Toyota Supra in the fall.
Ramona was a breast cancer survivor over 15 years. She was always hard working, dependable and always strived to be the best at everything she pursued.
Ramona was always dearly loved by her family and friends. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
