Emily E. Ramczyk, a resident of Portage County Health Care Center in Stevens Point, was welcomed into eternal life on July 1, 2021 at the age of 96. She reunited with Victor, her beloved husband for 40 years.
Emily was born in Sharon Town on December 30, 1924. Daughter of the late John and Mary (Yach) Platta. She attended General McGlocklin School. Victor John Ramczyk and Emily were married on October 25, 1947, in Sacred
Catholic Church of the Heart in Polonia. They resided in the town of Sharon, and later in the town of Hull. She has been a devoted member of the Sacred Heart and a member of the Rosary Society for 72 years.
Emily enjoyed socializing with family and friends, baking, canning, travel, and religious activities. When you stop for a visit, you can expect to be greeted by the aroma of freshly baked cookies, pies, or its famous cookies. Emily made trips to Australia, Mexico, Israel, and many states including Hawaii, Florida, and Arizona, but nothing was more precious to her than being with children. She babysat dozens of children for many years and loved each of them as her own. She said she would have paid their parents for this privilege.
Emily’s favorite time of year was preparing for and attending Polonia’s annual picnic, where she proudly contributed her delicious fruit and berry pies, along with other desserts for everyone to enjoy. She loved giving her family a chicken dinner, visiting people and dancing to the sound of polka bands. Her smile, her laughter and her big heart will be sadly missed by so many people.

Emily was predeceased by her parents, husband, sister Ann (Clarence) Ramczyk, brother John Platta, little brothers Joseph and Leonard, and granddaughter Tricia Ramczyk. Born with angel wings were a granddaughter (Ronnie and Delores Ramczyk) and a great grandson Leo David (Alyssa and Coby Curkeet).
