Isabel Ramos Ortiz fell asleep in death on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at 9:30 pm in Avon, IN. She was born November 5, 1946 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, daughter of Arturo Ramos Llompart and Rosa Emma Ortiz Arroyo. She received her BS Degree as a legal secretary and retired from Court of Justice in 2009.
Isabel was a courageous and dedicated member of Jehovah’s Witnesses for 47 years. Even in the most difficult trials and to the end, Isabel remained firm in her conviction to take a loyal stand for her beliefs. She cherished her close, personal relationship with her God, Jehovah. Isabel conveyed a heartfelt message to her family with saying “Keep on Praying”.
Isabel pioneered a self-sacrificing spirit, taking delight in acts of love by words and deeds. She always saw the good in others and believed that kindness conquers all. She was also a devoted mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed by each one.
Regardless of any challenging circumstance, Isabel kept her great sense of humor. She could light up a room when she walked in wearing her leopard print and beautiful smile, which became her signature.
In addition to her parents, Isabel was preceded in death by her sister, Zulma Ramos and brother, Arturo Miguel Ramos Dalmau.
