April 19, 1929 — March 29, 2013
Irene Campos Ramos, 83, of Woodland, passed away on March 29, 2013, with her sons at her bedside. She held fast to her faith in Christ during her illness.
She was born on April 19, 1929, to Arturo and Joaquina Campos. Born and raised in Winters, she grew up on her parents’ ranch off Olive School Lane. She attended Olive School and Winters High School. After marrying Jack Ramos, on June 22, 1947, they lived in Winters until 1958 when they moved to Davis and bought and managed the Davis Motel and raised two sons. She was devoted to her family, and especially loved her three grandchildren.
One of her great passions was developing real estate; she built several homes, acting as her own architect and general contractor. Her proudest project was a Spanish-style home she built near the ocean in Morro Bay. She also loved to travel with family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Arturo and Joaquina Campos; brothers, Joseph, Eleutario and Clarence Campos; and her sisters, Juanita Campos Martinez and Jeanette Campos Hayes.
She is survived by her children, Edward Ramos and wife Margaret of Woodland, and John L. Ramos of Woodland; grandchildren John R. Ramos of Sacramento, Joseph R. Ramos of Oak Harbor, Wash., and Samantha J. Ramos of Woodland; sister Pearl McCullough of Hemet; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.
A memorial Mass begins at 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 23, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 511 Main St. in Winters. A reception will follow the mass at St. Anthony’s Hall, also in Winters.
