Ramona Dykstra, 82, of Platte, SD passed away Monday, March 2, 2020 in Platte. Funeral Services are 10:30 A.M. Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Platte Christian Reformed Church. A Committal Service will follow at Platte City Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 P.M. Friday, March 6, 2020 at Mount Funeral Home in Platte.

Ramona Arlene (Poelstra) Dykstra was born on June 5, 1937 to Anthony and Jenette (Keizer) Poelstra. She married Dick Dykstra on December 30, 1955 in Armour, SD on a sunny, winter day. Dick and Ramona farmed on the family farm near Platte, SD for the first several years of their marriage, and later started Dykstra’s Department Store in Platte. After they sold the store they moved back to the farm and enjoyed collecting antiques. After Dick passed away in January of 2003 Ramona moved to Platte where she had since resided.

Ramona was a member of the Platte Christian Reformed Church where she attended and served in various offices of Magdalenes. As an avid reader she also enjoyed serving as one of the church librarians for many years. She loved spending her time embroidering, making baby blankets and dish towels for her family, reading, playing dominos and helping with the SCRIP program at DCS. She also cherished visits from her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings and friends.

Ramona was a wonderful mother to: Allan (Charlene) Dykstra of Couer d’Alene, ID, Laurie (Vic) Munneke of New Holland, SD, Doug (JoEllen) Dykstra of Platte, SD and Lisa (Brad) Hanson of Sioux Falls, SD. Ramona, lovingly referred to as Granny, loved her 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren: Josh (Allison) Dykstra—Elina & Hadley, Dacia Dykstra—Noah, Dillon (Jamie) Munneke—Mason, Trey, Allie & Asher, Mitch (Sara) Munneke—Bridger & Jennie, Chelsey (Steve) Nugteren—Annika, Ruby & Vivian, Cooper (fiancé Holly) Dykstra, Danica (Mike) Zomer—Everlie & Braelynn, Carter (Shelby) Dykstra, Zach (Katelyn) Hanson, Kait Hanson and Alex Hanson.

Also grateful for having shared in Ramona’s life were her brothers: Gene (JoAnn) Poelstra of Armour, SD and Walt (Mavis) Poelstra of Hayti, SD; adopted brother, Robert (Shirley) Poelstra of Minnesota; many foster siblings; her sisters-in-law: Mae Lieuwen and Kayrene (Mike) Walburg; nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Ramona was preceded in death by her husband, Dick Dykstra; her parents, Anthony and Jenette Poelstra; Dick’s parents, Ane and Bertha Dykstra; adopted sister, Theresa Hutchinson; a brother who died in infancy; and her in-laws, Henrietta (Jake) DeLange and Bill Lieuwen.

Memorials in Ramona’s honor may be directed to: Dakota Christian School, 37614 SD Hwy 44, Corsica, SD 57328.
