Coralyn Ann Searl Ramos, 87 of Newman passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 26th at her residence in Newman. She and her late husband, Lewie, lived at their home on Hills Ferry Road in Newman for over 65 years.

Mrs. Ramos was born in Albany, California and raised in Patterson, graduating from Patterson High School in 1950. The same week she graduated from high school, she turned 18 and was finally given permission to marry her beloved late husband, Lewis Albert Ramos on June 18, 1950. Ann, as she was known to friends and family, was a homemaker, a Girl Scout Leader for over 20 years, long time active member of the Orestimba Presbyterian Church, Life Member of the P.T.A. and a member of the Newman Historical Museum. Family histories were particularly important to her and she was proud to be a member of the Mayflower Society, tracing her line from John Howland and Elizabeth Tilly, who were passengers on the Mayflower. While her mother is credited with extensive family genealogy research, Ann learned from her, published several genealogy books and added to the collection of historical information.

Mrs. Ramos is survived by her four children, Ron (Shari) Ramos of Newman; Roxanne (Budd) Fox of Ontario, California, Russell (Teri) Ramos of Newman; Robert (Monica) Ramos of Modesto; 18 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by her husband, of 67 years, Lewis, in 2017 and by her oldest son, Randy in 2018.

The family hopes Ann is dancing with Lewie to their favorite Big Band sounds. Her tenacity will forever be cherished and missed.
