Founded by Heartly House through Mrs. Remsberg’s bequest to support its activities.
Ramona Remsberg devoted her professional and personal life to the betterment of Frederick County. As a professional, Mrs. Remsberg worked her way up from being a courier to president of Frederick County National Bank and Vice Chairman of the bank’s Board of Directors in retirement. Dedicated to a trailblazing 55-year career in banking and finance at a time when women were not in the field, Mrs. Remsberg made estate provisions to establish a scholarship fund to assist others interested in finance. The Ramona Corun Remsberg Scholarship Fund awards scholarships for post-secondary education, particularly for those pursuing finance careers. In addition to her career, Mrs. Remsberg was actively involved in the Frederick County community. She volunteered in leadership roles with Frederick Memorial Hospital, Hood College, Homewood, Frederick County Chamber of Commerce, Frederick Arts Council, Frederick County Mental Health Association, the Rotary Club of Frederick, United Way, The Community Foundation of Frederick County and more. She was also an active member of Jefferson United Church of Christ for 63 years. In her “free time,” she was an avid fan of the Washington Redskins and University of Maryland football and baseball. She loved traveling with friends as well.
