Ramona Beth Lacy

Ramona Beth “Mona” Lacy, 82, of Benton left her Earthly home on June 7th2024, to begin her eternal life with her Lord and Savior and reunite with the one whom her soul loved, Joe. 


She was born January 15, 1942, in Bald Knob, AR to Glenn Charles Piker and Dimple Viola Worley-PikerOn September 4th1960, she married the love of her life, Joe “Pops” Lacy. She took pride in devoting her life to being a doting and supportive housewife and selflessly serving local Baptist churches by volunteering annually for Vacation Bible School, leading various women’s Bible studies, and serving in senior leadership roles. She not only spread her love of the Lord through fellowship but was an accomplished gospel pianist. She lived much of her life for the sole purpose of others to know and love Jesus Christ-- to truly be able to say that she fulfilled her purpose for which she was created, and that she did. 


Mona is remembered for her love of laughter, specifically her keen ability to make others laugh. She enjoyed crafting, cooking (especially discovering new recipes), and had a passion for reading. She had a fondness for holiday celebrations and decorating, notably for the Fourth of July—Mona was patriotic, and loved to show her support for her country (especially through extravagant firework displays). Mona spent her final years immersing herself in the Word daily, often leading Bible studies alongside Joe from the comfort of their recliners (a Diet Coke in hand) with their furry companion Ms. Ellie nearby. 


She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 63 years, Joe Douglas Lacy; her parents, Glenn and Dimple Piker; and a brother, Rodrick Glenn Piker. 

She is survived by her adopted son, Douglas Cantrell; a brother, Charles “Chuck” (Linda) Piker; and many close friends, family members, and neighbors. Mona will be so very missed by all who knew and loved her--especially two of her “great grands”, Claire and Jackson Cantrell, who filled many of her final years with hugs, laughter, artwork at her kitchen table, and special moments learning music notes from her at the piano.
