ROCKLAND – Frances Ramona Ingerson, 70, died Thursday, November 11, 2004, at Knox Center for Long Term Care, after a long illness.

Born at Owls Head, September 28, 1934, she was the daughter of Raymond A. and Frances Knowlton Dow. She attended the one room Bear Hill School and was a 1951 graduate of Rockland High School.

In conjunction with raising nine children by herself, Ramona worked as a cook and waitress at the former Log Cabin and Paramont Restaurants. She later worked in area fish processing plants.

For many years she supplemented her income making Christmas wreathes for the holiday season. She also knitted Scandinavian sweaters, hats and mittens, giving many of them to children. This was an activity of compassion she continued until recent confinement due to illness.

She often wrote poetry and stories for her children, enjoyed music, but particularly loved the Christmas Holiday Season.

Ramona's family said their Mom was an awesome cook. They remember her wonderful whoopee-pies, cakes, donuts, potato yeast rolls and the fact that each Thanksgiving she baked each one of her children a pie.

Pre-deceased by her mother, Frances, step-father Floyd Montgomery, Sr. and one step-son, John Ingerson, Ramona is survived by nine children, Kathy Anne Estabrook of Rockland, John Davis and his wife Rhoda of Searsmont, Yvonne Davis and her husband Craig of Rockland, Diane Bouchard and her husband Raymond of Brunswick, Barbara Dennison of Rockland, Cynthia Wandell and her husband Brian of Rockport, Thomas Ingerson and his companion Michelle Benner of Cushing, Wendy Wagenkneht and her husband Hans of Wilton, Lori Bigelow and her husband Roy of Rockland; a foster daughter Matti Herrick of Arizona; three brothers, Floyd Montgomery and his wife Shelia of Rockland, William Montgomery, Robert Montgomery both of Florida; fourteen grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Interment at McPhail-Hicks Cemetery, Ingrahams Hill, Owls Head.
