Obituary for Joan M. Ramczyk

Joan M. Ramczyk, 76, passed away Thursday, December 27, 2018 at her home.

Born in Burlington, Wisconsin on January 10, 1942, she was the daughter of Herbert and Genevieve (nee Hegeman) Ehlen. She spent her early life in Genoa City, where she attended and graduated from St. Joseph’s, St. Mary’s and Union Grove Teacher’s College.

On June 29, 1963 at St. Joseph’s in Lyons, she was united in marriage to Raymond Ramczyk. Following marriage, they made their home in Burlington, where she continued to reside for 55 years. Joan began working as a first grade teacher, and later chose to stay home to raise her family. Over the next few decades she substitute taught and worked at Brandy Bay and Cottonpicker. She truly enjoyed the people she met and the relationships she built along the way. She was a member of St. Charles Church and a Girl Scout leader, babysitter, beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Joan had an amazing memory for birthdays and anniversaries of all she knew. She was also passionate about handwriting letters of encouragement to those she loved. Her laugh and smile resonated with everyone she met. She felt genuine love and kindness for others.
