About Barbara Ramos

Image of Barbara Ramos. Barbara Ramos was born in Grand Rapids, MI, but moved to California in 1949. Barbara met and married Eddie Ramos in June of 1982 and resided in Clovis, CA. They moved to Oakhurst in 2000. They have five children: Heather Wilbour, Erik & Kelly who live in their home and help as caregivers, Brian & Becky, Steven Taylor & Melissa. They also have four grandchildren.

Barbara has had a ton of medical issues over the years and Eddie has been her greatest supporter. He was there for her no matter what or how difficult the circumstances were. I was always awed by the care and dedication he gave Barbara.

Image of Barbara Ramos.A couple of months ago Eddie fell and it caused his brain to bleed so he was admitted to the hospital. While he was there Barbara insisted on visiting him. Some friends took her down to see him. Barbara began to cross the road on her scooter and was hit by a car. Even though she was at the hospital they were unable to save her life.

Barbara was nominated as a recipient. It is unusual for us to do a dinner after someone has passed away, but it was decided to be given in support of the family. Eddie will accept the monies in lieu of Barbara.
