    Elaine (Ramer) Pepper, 92, passed away on January 4, 2023 in John’s Creek, Georgia. She is survived by her children, Steven Pepper (Susan Pepper); Terri Pepper; David Pepper; and Jill Haveson (Randy Haveson). She is also survived by her brother, Dr. Robert Ramer (Alice Ramer), by her grandchildren, Kenny Pepper (Adi Hecht Pepper), Scotty Pepper (Margo Lyon Pepper), Max Pepper, Elizabeth Goodgame, Suzi Pepper, Zelli Gavulic, and Eden Haveson, as well as her great grandchildren, Noah Pepper, Jordan Pepper, Cerina Pepper, Audrey Pepper, and Evan Pepper. Her brother Dr. Richard Ramer and sister, Renee Isen preceded her in death.

    Elaine was born March 7, 1930 in Passaic, New Jersey to Max and Clarice Ramer. She married Robert (Bob) Pepper in 1954 and they were married for 37 years until his death in 1991.  In 1969, Elaine and Bob moved their family to North Miami Beach, Florida where they enjoyed boating, travel, and family time. 

    Elaine was devoted to her large family and was an active member of the Tessie Ramer Family Circle in its early days.  She was a full-time homemaker when her children were growing up and her home was known as a gathering place for friends and family alike.

    During her life she was a volunteer with the Children’s Asthma Research Institute & Hospital (CARIH) in Denver, CO (now National Jewish), raising money for asthma research. After raising her children, Elaine worked as a medical secretary for doctor’s offices in North Miami Beach, Florida. After moving to Georgia in the 1990s she worked conducting blood drives and helped with the care of her grandchildren. Elaine was passionate about sports – in particular, Florida Gator football, Atlanta Braves baseball, and the Miami Dolphins. On most Saturdays you could find her in her orange and blue attire and lucky beads, in front of the TV to cheer on the Gators. Elaine enjoyed many hobbies including bowling, mahjong, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, and going to the movies.

    Graveside services will be held on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. at Mt. Nebo / Memorial Gardens at 5505 NW 3rd St, Miami, FL 33126.

    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in memory of Elaine Pepper to Jewish Homelife Atlanta at their website at For many years Elaine was resident in Jewish Homelife facilities and benefitted from their many services.
