Ramona Blake Carpenter

St. George, Utah

Ramona Blake Carpenter was born November 8, 1931, in St. George Utah to parents Royal Hollis and Olive Wade Blake. She passed away peacefully just one week after celebrating her 90th birthday. Ramona was the 10th of 11 children and was raised in St. George Utah. She married Robert Willis Carpenter September 23, 1950, in Pioche, Nevada and they were later sealed for Time and all Eternity in the Los Angeles Temple on March 11, 1961. They moved to Ridgecrest, California in 1955 , back to St. George in 1968, and then to LaVerkin Utah in 1994.

Ramona was a homemaker for many years, but also worked at Zions Bank and Dixie Hospital. She liked to sew, quilt, do work at the Temple, and loved Genealogy. She graciously served in many positions in her church. Bob and Ramona served a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Sterling Colorado as well as a mission at the Saint George Bishop’s Storehouse. They were married 52 years – Bob passed away in 2002. Ramona was a great example of love, grace, and service not only to her family, but others as well. You would never hear her complain and she always made sure everyone was taken care of and loved even if it was down to the last piece of cake. She will be missed dearly by all who love and know her – God be with you till we meet again. We love you Mom, Grandma, GiGi, Sister and Friend.

  1. I have so many fond memories of my aunt ‘ Mickey” as far back as when I was three. She was always special to my Dad, Danny ( the 11 th ). Later in life, she became my best friend. She helped me survive during these last several years, since losing my parents. I Love her, and will miss her so very much.
    I send love to All of her family. I appreciate Debbie’s help keeping me in touch with my special aunt.

  2. So sorry to hear this. I loved sister Carpenter, she was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever known. You will be missed!

  3. Love you Mom! Grateful that you and Dad are reunited now. Have a wonderful celebration.
    Thank your for all the love and care you have given throughout your life to your entire family.
    Love Glenn & Jolynn

  5. My sweet, sweet GiGi life will never be the same without you. I know you were greeted by Grandpa and your family that passed on before you. Give Grandpa a big hug and kiss for me. Rest easy in the arms of your Savior. I love you to the moon and back. Remember this isn’t goodbye, I’ll see you later. Forever, Amber Joy.

  6. I loved Aunt Mickey. She was always smiling or laughing, no matter what we were doing. My mother, Viola’s daughter Sally, loved her more than anything and had a special closeness with her. I know my mother and Grandma will be so excited to see her again. This is a great loss to us on earth, but a wonderful reunion in Heaven. Sending all my love and prayers to all the family and friends who are grieving. Till we meet again, Aunt Mickey!

  7. I grew up in Ridgecrest California and had the privilege of knowing the Carpenter family. Sister Carpenter always made me feel welcomed and loved. She was a special lady and will be missed by her family and friends. Love you sister Carpenter and family. Tom Andreasen
