GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA -  Louise Justice Ramsay, after many falls, Louise fell into the arms of her savior on 6/18/2020, after two days in hospice care at Beacon Place.

She was born on a farm in Clyde, NC, July 5, 1929, the fifth of six children. When she was 12 (1942), her family moved to Newport News, Virginia.

Louise lived a long and happy life. She was loved by all who knew her. Whatever she did, she gave it her total commitment.

In her early years she was president of the Junior Women’s Club and the Presbyterian Women of Hilton Presbyterian Church, both in Newport News, and in appreciation of her service she was awarded an honorary life membership by both.




Louise was an excellent bridge player and dearly loved all her friends in the various duplicate bridge clubs she belonged to in Greensboro. It was a sad day when mobility problems ended those days.

Louise is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 71 years, P. Ross Ramsay, two loving daughters, Diane Weeks of Greensboro, and Cathy Stinnette (Ray) of Yorktown, Virginia; two granddaughters, Holly Weeks Harding (Richard), Rachel Weeks Walter; and four great grandchildren, Harper, Rhett and Kit Harding and Lars Walter.

Her sister Polly Bailey of Newport News, VA also survives her, as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was a member of Jamestown Presbyterian Church.

Memorial services are on hold due to COVID-19.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Ramsay family.

I immediately recognized the Louise I met later in life as one of those kind souls that the world desperately needs to emulate. She was an ideal neighbor and friend who will be missed.

I have fond memories of her wonderful Monday Bridge group, playing cards and enjoying the view of the backyard, celebrating her 80th birthday, and listening to her words of wisdom. Her smile brightened the day.
Everyone should be like Louise.
My condolences to Ross and the family.
With love,

O Jesus, I Have Promised

Words by John E. Bode (23 Feb 1816 - 06 Oct 1874), 1868

Music (Angel's Story) by Arthur Henry Mann (16 May 1850 - 19 Nov 1929), 1881

O Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou forever near me, my Master and my Friend;
I shall not fear the battle if Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway if Thou wilt be my Guide.

O let me feel Thee near me! The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle, the tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me, around me and within;
But Jesus, draw Thou nearer, and shield my soul from sin.

O let me hear Thee speaking in accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self will.
O speak to reassure me, to hasten or control;
O speak, and make me listen, Thou Guardian of my soul.

O Jesus, Thou hast promised to all who follow Thee
That where Thou art in glory there shall Thy servant be.
And Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow, my Master and my Friend.

O let me see Thy footprints, and in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly is in Thy strength alone.
O guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end;
And then in Heaven receive me, my Savior and my Friend.
