Emma Mae Ramsey

May 9, 2016 – October 23, 2020

Buxton, N.C. – Emma Mae Ramsey, 4, passed away tragically along with her mom Katrina and big sister Zoey, on October 23, 2020, in Buxton, North Carolina. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on May 9, 2016, she is the daughter of Katrina and Harry Ramsey.

Emma “Lou”attended Hatteras Preschool and was a ball of energy, 24/7. She loved to cuddle and eat her tomatoes. She definitely put a smile on your face when in her presence, you just couldn’t help yourself. Her sisters were her buddies. Like her sisters, Bridgett and Zoey, she wore the badge of “Coastie Kid” proudly. She will be missed tremendously by her Daddy and Sissy. She was loved deeply by all her family and many friends she had made, and she loved them back even more.

Emma is survived by her loving father Harry Hamilton Ramsey III BM1, USCG; her sister, Bridgett Fisher; grandparents, James Piazza, Jamie and Mike Rendon, and Helen Ramsey; great-grandfathers, James Smith and Charles Mosgrave; aunts and uncles, Shane Piazza, Nathalie Rendon, Ryan Rendon, and Daisy Rendon, and Joseph Ramsey (wife Farrah), Charles Ramsey (wife Nicole); and many cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Harry Hamilton Ramsey, Jr.

A vigil was held Friday, October 30, 2020, at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.  Friends and family may call at the William D. Elkin Funeral Home, 65 S Lake Street, North East on Saturday, November 14 at 1 p.m. until time of a memorial service at 3 p.m with full COVID-19 safety measures being observed. Co-officiating the service are Rev.
