Joyce Elaine Ramerman, age 63, of Bellingham, WA passed away surrounded by family and friends early in the morning on March 14, 2017 at St. Joseph Medical Center. She was born on July 7, 1953 in Seattle, WA, the daughter of Allan Ramerman and Grace Brink Ramerman. Joyce was a shining light to all who knew her. Quick to share a smile or a joke, she touched the lives of all she met. She worked at Western Washington University for almost 30 years in various roles, staying dedicated to her job, and enjoying her coworkers and her “kids” who frequented her store. She cherished time with family and friends, loved playing cards or board games, grabbing milkshakes with her dear friend Marianne, needlepoint, and her cat Millie. She is survived by her two children Alieca (Matt) Prendergast, Karl (Pauli) Johnson, her 5 grandchildren Aiden, Austin, Madison, Owen, Trace, her brother Gerald Ramerman, and her sister Beverly Leeper. A celebration of life will be held at Woodstock Farms in Bellingham, WA on March 24, 2017 at 1:00pm. Condolences may be sent to Moles Farewell Tributes in Bellingham, WA.
