White Deer woman dies on local ranch

A White Deer woman was found dead on a family ranch in Donley County last Wednesday, August 23, apparently run over by her own vehicle.

Donley County Sheriff Butch Blackburn said the body of 52-year-old Ramona Freeman was discovered about 11:28 a.m. pinned under her vehicle near a gate entrance in the middle of a pasture northeast of Clarendon near County Road O.

The sheriff said it appeared Mrs. Freeman had been deceased for at least two days.

An autopsy was conducted on August 24, and preliminary results show the cause of death was asphyxiation, Blackburn said.

The sheriff said his office is still investigating the case this week.

According to an obituary in the Amarillo Globe-News, Mrs. Freeman was a 1983 graduate of Wheeler High School and an accomplished athlete in high school and college in golfing. She coached and taught in White Deer, Canadian, Highland Park, Borger, and Pampa.

Mrs. Freeman is survived by her husband, Johnny Freeman; four children, Skylar Rhea-Lynn Freeman, John Payton Freeman, both of White Deer, Amanda Freeman Saffel and husband Phillip and their children Olivia and Everett of Lubbock; and Justin Freeman and wife Lacee, and their children Jaxon, Logan, and Hunter of White Deer.

She is also survived by her parents, Larry and Bobby Jennings of Wheeler; and a sister, Rhonda Myers and husband Dwayne of Samnorwood.

Services were held Saturday, August 26, in Pampa, and burial followed in White Deer Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the Mona Jennings Freeman Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o White Deer Bank, PO Box 67, White Deer, Texas 79097.
