Gloria Lamphier Obituary

On January 14, 2024, our beloved mother, Gloria Marie Ramey Lamphier passed away peacefully at Salemhaven. Our heartfelt thanks to the nurses and staff at Salemhaven for their compassionate care and for allowing our mother to die with dignity and grace.

Born August 3, 1931, Gloria was raised and educated in Lawrence and was a 1948 graduate of Lawrence High School. She was employed by the Massachusetts Cerebral Palsy Association for 12 years and also worked as a special needs teachers aid at Methuen High School for over 12 years. Gloria attended St. Michael Church of North Andover. She enjoyed dancing, reading and crochet.    Gloria lived a full, energetic and amazing life with her husband, Eddie Lamphier, for 64 years. Their love for each other was the foundation for her daughters, Cindy, Judy and Jeanne to begin their own journey in life.

Gloria was the youngest of the seven children of Wehby and Marie Ramey and the last of the Rameys of her generation.

Predeceased by her siblings; Jay Habib, Mike Ramey, Joe Ramey, Fred Ramey, Eddie Ramey and Adele Madore who were her protectors and brothers and sisters in the truest sense of family.

Judy and Peter Bolis of York, Maine and Jeanne and John Renken and their daughter, Madison of Methuen, MA. Her story is now our legacy and filled with wonderful memories; many of which were shared over the last days. We were blessed to have her as a mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.

She is also survived by, and loved for the sweet aunt she was to George and Marie Habib, Lorraine Habib, Dana Ramey, Tina Ramey and Tina’s daughters Samantha and Hannah; Bobby, Fred, Steven Ramey; Sharon Fleury, Christine Ransom, Denise Mendoza and the Yamins of Fall River, MA. and for the dear friend she was to many including Deborah Kennedy, Clay Soucy, Susan Carl and the Dance moms.

She once again has on her dancing shoes and is finally with her beloved husband, Eddie.
