Ramona Jane Fisher Allison
October 27, 1940 ~ May 7, 2019
RAMONA JANE FISHER ALLISON died peacefully on May 7, 2019, with family surrounding her, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Ogden, Utah, on October 27, 1940, to Clifford and Rosetta Fisher, Ramona grew up in West Point, Utah, and graduated from Davis High School in 1958. She then married Charles Evans of Clinton, Utah. Although they later divorced, their marriage produced two beloved sons, Cornell and Troy.
In 1964, Ramona met and married the love of her life, John Allison, through whom she gained a wonderful step-son, Bret. They settled in Kaysville, Utah, and together had a beautiful daughter, Jodi.
Ramona proudly and rapidly ascended the leadership ladder in her career at Hill Air Force Base, starting as a secretary and ending up as the highest ranking female civilian director of a major organization there. Along the way, she earned an MBA.
After retirement, Ramona and John traveled the world together and enjoyed living in Mazatlan for part of each year. Ramona loved camping, boating, skiing, playing bridge and golf, and gourmet cooking. Most of all, she loved her family and friends, with whom she shared all these activities. Ramona pampered her grandchildren, arranging Halloween and Easter hunts in her yard, and taking them on trips and countless other activities. She was fun, always on the go, full of life and love, and cherished by all. She will truly be missed.
Ramona was preceded in death by her husband John and daughter Jodi, and by her sisters Lois and Betty. Surviving are her sons Cornell Evans (Andrea) of Centerville, and Troy Evans (Kathy) of Layton; her step-son Bret Allison (Mike Sims) of Palm Springs; her brother Farrell Fisher (Louiene) of Mt. Airy, MD; and ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life will be held on June 22, 2019, at 3:00 p.m., at Troy’s home, located at 255 S. 1675 E., Layton, Utah.
