Ramona “Mona” J. Parsons, 62, of Scranton, KS left us on Wednesday, July 5, 2023 at Midland Hospice House, Topeka, KS, surrounded by her family. She was born March 14, 1961, in Eldorado, KS, the daughter of Leo Arb and Delores (Zumbrunn) Arb.
She grew up in the Scranton, KS area graduating from Santa Fe Trail high School with the class of 1980.
On December 20, 1980 Ramona was united in marriage to Philip Parsons.
Ramona had several jobs over her life, working at Flemings, several nursing homes, running a daycare out of her home, Casey’s in Scranton, Scranton Tavern, The Forbes sewing Factory in Burlingame, and finally as a custodian for U.S.D. 434, recently.
Ramona loved camping with her family and just spending the weekends at the lake. She was always at peace and happy in nature. She never missed an opportunity to go play Bingo.
