Katrina Marie Ramsey, 35, passed away tragically in a house fire, along with her two daughters, Zoey Renee and Emma Mae on October 23, 2020, in Buxton, North Carolina. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania on August 17, 1985, she is the daughter of James Piazza and Jamie Rendon (husband Mike). After graduating from North East High School in 2003, she attended Mercyhurst College where she studied and graduated as an LPN. Katrina was a longtime employee of Harvest Restaurant in North East and also held various nursing positions. On August 8, 2008, in Pensacola, Fla., Katrina married Harry Hamilton Ramsey III. Katrina’s proudest and most immense joy was the life she and Harry created together. She never ceased to amaze those around her with the deep love she had for her three daughters, Bridgett, Zoey, and Emma, and Harry; they were her world. She was a beautiful and loving person and by fault wore her heart on her sleeve. She had the best smile and beautiful blue eyes. In addition to her parents, Katrina is survived by her loving husband, Harry Hamilton Ramsey III BM1, USCG; daughter, Bridgett Fisher; siblings, Shane Piazza of Parker, Colo., Nathalie Rendon, Ryan Rendon, and Daisy Rendon, all of Erie, Pa.; grandfather, James Smith; mother-in-law Helen Ramsey, brothers-in-law, Joseph Ramsey (wife Farrah), and Charles Ramsey (wife Nicole); and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Christopher Piazza; grandmother, Emily Smith; and father-in-law, Harry Hamilton Ramsey, Jr. She was very proud to be called a “Coastie Wife” and loved the Coast Guard as much. She will be deep- ly missed by very close friends, Amber Snell, Lynn Orton, Ashleigh Kansa, and Bridget Greene, her first “Coastie Wife.” A vigil will be held at 5:00 p.m. on 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 14th at 1:00 p.m. until time of a memorial service at 3:00 p.m. with full COVID-19 safety measures being ob- served.

You don't know me, but I happened to come across these and it just absolutely breaks my heart. It is difficult to come up with any words that may seem like the "right" thing to say at times like these. I am so profoundly sorry for your loss and I pray that God comforts you and holds your girls in His loving arms.
