Paula Coluzzi Ramos, born in Washington, D.C., on June 9, 1957, to Ann Crook Coluzzi and Vincent Paul Coluzzi, joined them in Heaven at 63 years of age leaving home peacefully in Bealeton, on June 24, 2020.
Everyone knows of how Paula fought her illness valiantly the last four-plus years. Paula is defined not by this illness, but by her courage and faith in her journey toward eternal life.
Paula’s life was huge. She always put her loved ones first and anyone that needed her no matter the circumstance. Paula was the first of two daughters. Both would aspire to do great things in life. This was spurred by the love and dedication from their mother and father. Ann Coluzzi was dedicated to a life educating young minds and stretching creativity. Paula would follow in those footsteps.
Paula did it all. Married to Ramon Ramos Jr. and raising four young children, Paula still managed to educate in the D.C. school system, continue her education leaning towards helping those with special needs, while being the most incredible wife in this world. She would take her new accreditations from university and apply them at the Keller Institute in Fairfax. Paula honed in on the skills that made her invaluable as the teacher whom she became.
Our journey led the family to a new life in Fauquier County. Paula would sign on with the county school system and so began this chapter totaling 20 years, beginning at Cedar Lee Middle School and on to her beloved Liberty High School.
The funeral will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday July 1, at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Warrenton. A “celebration of life” for Paula will be scheduled at a later date so that all who loved her may safely attend. We will be cognizant of the health concerns for all. The church will safely accommodate all who attend. Please, use Virginia requirements for social distancing. (Many hugs later, Paula said she sending a group hug Wednesday.)
