Ramona A. Hephner-Luedeman

Ramona A. Hephner-Luedeman, age 65, of Green Bay, died on Thursday, November 17, 2016. She was born September 4, 1951 in Fond du Lac, daughter of Raymond “Jim” Hephner and the late Virginia V. Lee.

Ramona married Stephen Luedeman in Green Bay where the couple made their home and she devoted her life to the care of her family and the raising of her children first and foremost. During their time in Green Bay, Ramona also enjoyed to work at various odds and ends jobs, but one of her favorites was when she was given the opportunity to drive taxi-cab around the city. It was a job that offered her plenty of time to visit with people and she was proud of the many famous people she was able to jaunt around town.

Ramona had a passion for music which spanned many genres and included an annual camping excursion at Country USA in Oshkosh. She enjoyed playing Yahtzee, Sheepshead, Poker and Pogo and never passed up an opportunity to hop on the back of the motorcycle for a ride with Steve.

Ramona was truly a free spirit going whichever way the wind would blow her. Her caring touch and helpful hand will be missed by all those who loved her.

Survivors include her husband: Steve; her father: Jim Hephner; 2 children: Curtis (Christa) Busse, II, Brooks Luedeman and his significant other, Jamilla McGee; 5 grandchildren: Sean Busse, Jr., Eric Busse, Curtis (Lydia) Busse, III, Deric Luedeman, Michael Brooks Luedeman; a great grandchild: Jordan Rose Busse; her siblings: Barbara (Les) Williams, Donna (Konrad) Phalin, & Monte Hephner; a Godson: Todd Demeuse; and her Godmother: Sheila Hephner. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her mother and step father: Virginia V. & Gordon Flaherty; her step-mother: Marie Hephner; her son: Sean Busse, Sr.; 2 brothers: Michael & Marcel Hephner; and a sister: Debra Roethler.
