Camden's Rosa Ramirez Remembered as a 'Social Justice Warrior'

By Cherry Hill Courier Post, Phaedra Trethan, October 12, 2022

In a 1992 profile, Rosa Ramirez told the Courier-Post she wanted to be remembered "as a friend of everybody."

"I loved and I tried my best," Ramirez said, "I want to be remembered as a person who wanted to help everybody, so that they could say, 'I went there and she gave me a hand.'"

There are many in Camden and elsewhere who were on the receiving end of Ramirez's helping hands.

The longtime Camden resident, social justice advocate and activist died Oct. 7 at the age of 80. According to a Courier-Post death notice, she was "surrounded by her loving family," which includes her husband, Roberto; children Nancy Rodriguez, Melissa Portscheller; three grandchildren and two sisters.
