A Randolph County native, Ms. Rampy was born on August 15, 1924, the daughter of Robert Douglas and Loneta Mashburn Wilson.  She was a member of Liberty Grove Congregational Methodist Church and worked as a clerk for A & P Grocery.  Ms. Rampy was a wonderful woman who had a knack for baking and cooking, working for many years caring for elderly who actually were younger than she was, never acting her age until recently. And it wasn’t by her choice, it was God’s.  He knew her time here was full of accomplishments and he was ready for her.  Ms. Rampy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Virgil Stanley Rampy; son, Charles Douglas Rampy; two sisters, Elma Josephine Roan and Betty Jean Holmes; and three brothers, Robert Reed Wilson, Burvin Franklin Wilson, and Huel Wayne Wilson.
