Ramona Kael Golden

April 9, 1931 — February 21, 2024

Mandeville, Louisiana

Ramona Kael Golden, affectionately known as Mom, Maw Maw, GiGi and Aunt Mona, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, surrounded by her family. Ramona was 92. She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, John “Jack” Golden, her daughter, Donna Golden, her grandson, Michael Andrew Golden, her parents, Felix and Anita Kael, as well as her two older siblings, Rudy Kael and Lorraine Guillory. 

Ramona is survived by her children, Joanne Hymel, Michael Golden (Bridget), Ken Golden, Barbara Golden and Anita Hagan (Gordon). She is also survived  by her grandchildren, Jennifer Barbier (Shelby), Preston Hymel (Michelle),  Mandy Navalance (Devon), Rebecca Golden, Patrick Golden (Nadia), Marci  Golden, Stephanie Zimmer, Stacey Zimmer, Sarah Genin (Thomas), Stephen Zimmer Jr. (Jennifer), Billy Hagan (Heather), Kelli Hagan, Gordon Hagen Jr, (Tammy) Gina Hagan, Tina Beddingfield (Brian)  and great-grandchildren, Josh Harig  (Katelyn), Cole Barbier, Elizabeth Hymel, Preston Hymel Jr., Amelie Golden,  Grayson Comeaux, Jocelyn Comeaux, Charlie Genin, Jakob Zimmer, Kale  Hagan, Cora Hagan and another on the way; one step great-grandson, Gage Brown and one great great-grandchild, Kayson Harig and another on the  way! 

Ramona spent many years volunteering at Roquette Lodge in Mandeville where she lived. Along with her husband, Jack, she was a Lector and Eucharistic Minister for Sunday masses at Roquette. Ramona had a committed devotion to Jesus thru his Blessed Mother. She led many residents to the sacraments and to a personal relationship with Our Lord. She was active in Come Lord Jesus, Patriotic Rosary Groups, and Bible studies.  Ramona could often be found in Adoration to the Blessed Sacrament. The grandkids often thought she had a “direct line” to God and would ask for her to pray for them! 

Ramona lived for Fridays - her hair appointment with her daughter, Anita and the lunch date with her kids.  

The family would like to thank her daughter/our sister, Joanne Hymel, for generously caring for our mom steadily for the past three years.
