Bettye Jean Gartman Ramage
COLORADO CITY-- Bettye Jean Gartman Ramage (Nana), age 91, went to be with Jesus on Monday, April 20, 2015. At the time of her death she was at the Universal Hospice Hospital in Fort Worth.
A memorial service will be held at Calvary Baptist Church in Colorado City on Saturday, April 25th at 10:30 a.m. Visitation will be held Friday, April 24, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kiker-Seale Funeral Home
Bettye was born in Sanco to R.R. Gartman and Leah Ethel Martin Gartman on September 6, 1923. She was a graduate of Sanco High School. Bettye worked for North American and Consolidated Aircraft Company in Grand Prarie helping to build B24 aircrafts during World War II alongside her father, sister, and brother-in-law. She did the electrical wiring in the control panel of the cockpit, mainly because she was small enough to fit in that area.
Bettye married the love of her life Robert (Bob) Ramage on August 11, 1945 at Goodfellow Army Aircorp Base in San Angelo. Shortly after, they made their home in Colorado City, started their family and she helped her husband Robert start Ramage Appliance. When the boys weren’t there she had no issue being commander in charge of the business. She was the woman that could get things done.
Bettye was a long time member of Oak Street Baptist Church, where she taught in the toddler department for many years. She had a love for her husband, family, gardening, travel, enjoyed canning, playing dominoes, dominating at Skip Bo and spoiling her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. All her grandchildren can testify that their Nana loved them, was always ready for a hug and they could “sit on her lap as long as she had one.”
Survivors include one daughter, Ethel Lady of Arlington: two sons, Alan and wife Vicki Ramage of Colorado City and Robert Lewis and wife Lanette Ramage of Royse City; grandchildren, Coley Ramage of Colorado City, Anthony Lady and wife Gina of Keller, Kameron and husband Brian Earles of Royse City, Elizabeth and husband Jon Jackson of Arlington, LeeAnn and husband Dee Roach of Colorado City and Judd Ramage of Royse City; great-grandchildren, Ryann Lowerman, Evelyn and Amelia Lady all of Keller, Annaka Earles of Royse City, Aidan and Avery Jackson of Arlington, Zack and Sara Stone of Colorado City; and a son of the Ramage’s heart, Scott Cawthorn of Lubbock.
She was preceded in death by her husband; siblings, D.R. Gartman, Lucille Thomason, and Inez Gartman; and parents.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to Oak Street Baptist Church, P.O. Box 783, Colorado City, TX 79515 or Sanco Association or Sanco Cemetary c/o Lvon Reid 1621 Hassell St., San Angelo, Texas 76901.
