BOSSIER CITY, LA – Our precious mother and best friend, Ramona Mary LaPlante Latham, 60, entered eternal rest on September 10, 2013. A memorial Mass celebrating her life will be held Saturday, September 14, 2013, 10:30 AM at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church, Bossier City. Reverend Father Joseph Ampatt, Pastor, and Father Thomas John will officiate. Family will receive friends at the church parish hall immediately following Mass. Cremation is under the direction of Hill Crest Funeral Home and Memorial Park. A private interment will be held at Hill Crest Cemetery. Mom’s life was selflessly dedicated to God and her family. God, her children, grandchildren, and family were Ramona’s joy. Her love and devotion for them is her legacy, which will be carried on through them.
