BATH — Ila N. “Namie” (Abbott) Ramsey, 95, died Thursday, Nov. 11 at Winship Green Nursing Home surrounded by her family.

Born in Boston, Mass., on Feb. 19, 1915, she was the daughter of Walter F. and Edith (Mooers) Abbott.

Raised in Bath, she graduated from Morse High School in 1933.

On Sept. 7, 1940, she married Delmar “Naps” Ramsey and enjoyed 36 years together until his death in 1976.

In 1955 they built a cottage at Head Beach in Phippsburg, and after her retirement from Gibbons Oil Company in 1990, she spent as much time as possible there.

A cat enthusiast, she also enjoyed baking for her grandchildren, gardening and creating family photo albums. She could often be found bird watching and people watching.

She is survived by her daughter, Lynda R. and her husband Myron Wyman of Phippsburg; three grandchildren, Clarissa W. and her husband Brian Doughty of Phippsburg, William R. and his wife Charline Wyman of Phippsburg, Abigail Wyman of Alexandria, Va.; and eight great-grandchildren.

A graveside service at Harding’s Cemetery in East Brunswick was held earlier this week.
