Ramona Delores Kincaid

November 9, 1945 — October 13, 2023

Ramona Delores Kincaid, formerly Long, departed this life on October 13, 2023.  She was 77 yrs old. Ramona was born in Wenatchee, Washington, on November 9, 1945, and she grew up in Ephrata, Washington.  Her parents were William “Bill” C. Long and Evelyn Long (formerly Hoff) and her sister was Christy Long.  Bill and Evelyn were life-long residents of Ephrata, where they raised Ramona and Christy. Ramona was always proud of her family history as many had been hearty pioneers who helped settle Washington Territory prior to statehood.  A graduate of Ephrata High, Ramona met the love of her life in 1964.  Eventually she married him—Robert “Bob” T. Kincaid, Jr. (79)—a young Air Force Airman, in January 1966, in Bitburg, Germany. Together, Robert and Ramona traveled around the world as a military family, raising three children: Robert III (56), Reid (55) and Regan Kincaid (29).  Their assignments ranged from Germany to Belgium to England to Spain and to duty in most U.S. states. Throughout it all, Ramona was a selfless and dedicated wife and mother who devoted all of her time,
energy, and effort to her family.  Even as time and illness began to take its toll on her health, right up to the end, Ramona refused to let frailty interfere with what she viewed as her obligations to her family—she continued to spoil her family members with seemingly endless amounts of humor, love, care, and home cooked meals. Sadly, Ramona’s parents and sister pre-deceased her by many years. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Bob, and their three children. Ramona will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday, January 5, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. where she will one day be reunited with her best friend and the love of her life—Bob Kincaid, LTC (R), USAF.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Colonial Heights Chapel of E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes and Crematory, 2033 Boulevard. Condolences may be registered at www.ealvinsmall.com
