Patsy Ramsey, the mother of murdered beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, died on Saturday. A spokesperson for the family says Mrs. Ramsey died from Ovarian Cancer.
The former Miss West Virginia grew up in Parkersburg, but gained national attention when her six-year-old daughter was found beaten and strangled in their Colorado home back in 1996.
Two years ago, Patsy Ramsey came to town for a luncheon and fashion show to help raise money for Ovarian Cancer research. Mrs. Ramsey had been battling cancer since 1993.
No arrests were ever made in connection with her daughter's murder.
