Obituary for Diane M. Ramonas

Diane Marie Ramonas (nee Malecha), age 61, a devoted wife, mother, and sister, died April 30, 2020, at her home in Aurora, IL, following a two-year battle with metastatic breast cancer and recent complications due to Covid-19.

Diane was born Dec. 1, 1958, in Chicago. She lived much of her life in Naperville, IL, which she proudly called home as she saw it grow from a farm town to a bustling city. She and her family were among the first parishioners at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Naperville.

She loved to take trips around the Midwest, especially to her favorite destination—Door County, WI. In Wisconsin, she often sought out the state’s supper clubs and a good place to watch a sunset over a lake. She also enjoyed reading and completing puzzles in her spare time.

Diane was a 1976 graduate of Naperville Central High School, and received her Bachelor’s degree in accountancy from North Central College in Naperville. She held various accounting and bookkeeping jobs in and around Naperville and Vail, CO.

She was most recently employed as a community relations manager for Loaves & Fishes Community Services in Naperville, where she worked to raise awareness about poverty and hunger within the area. She also was part of the Naperville Woman’s Club.

Diane is survived by her daughter, Alexandra Ramonas (Denver, CO), as well as her son, Andrew Ramonas, and her daughter-in-law, Andrea Korte (Washington, DC). Survivors also include her mother-in-law, Ingrida Ramonas (Eagle, CO), four brothers and sisters, and several nephews and nieces.

Her husband, Dalis Ramonas, whom she married on June 16, 1984, preceded her in death. Her father and mother, Richard and Ann Malecha, and her twin daughters, Amanda and Amaris Ramonas, also preceded her in death.

Due to the current health crisis, a memorial service is being planned for a future date.
