Ramona Louise Lance passed away peacefully and joined our Lord on 12/28/2018 at the age of 74 with loved ones by her side at the Schneidmiller Home located in CDA, Idaho.

Had three children, divorced, remarried and returned to Spokane Valley 1976. One of her lifelong goals in life was owning her home free and clear and she accomplished that dream 2 months ago. Recently retired from Fred Myer' s in Spokane Valley where she worked in Playland and prior in nutrition. Ramona was a 25 year SURVIVOR of breast cancer she WON that battle. In June of this year she started another battle with lung cancer (not any part of breast cancer) the cancer took her life but she won her battle and became cancer free, when she was reunited with our lord.

Ramona also was a licensed hairstylist, and personal seamstress for many people. She was widely known for her chicken'n'dumplings and chicken noddle soup that was rumored to be able to fix any illness. Known by most as "Nana" she will forever be loved and missed.
