Ex-client: Ramsaran was devoted mom


An obituary prepared by the R.J. Fahy Funeral Home in Norwich said there were no public calling hours.

In addition to her husband, Jennifer Ramsaran is survived by her three children, Cara Lyn, Glenn Robert Walker and Nicole Claire, all of South New Berlin; her parents, Thomas and Caroline Renz of South New Berlin; and her sister, JoAnn Buff, and brother-in-law, James Buff, of Middleburgh; as well as her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Sam and Tara Ramsaran of Yonkers.

Wilcox recalled Jennifer Ramsaran as a kind-hearted person and very diligent in her duties as a part-time caretaker for him. After working for 37 years as a janitor for Sheffield Products, Wilcox said, he was left partially paralyzed as the result of a stroke he suffered in 2010.

In late 2011, he said Susan Converse, a nurse and a friend of Jennifer Ramsaran, recommended the New Berlin mother to fill the caretaker position. He said Jennifer Ramsaran would sometimes bring her children along, and she became such good friends with Wilcox that she would sometimes confide in him the problems that she was having in her home life.

“She was worked up about that,” he said.

Wilcox, 57, acknowledged that he was interviewed by New Berlin police after Ganesh Ramsaran reported his wife missing Dec. 11.

“She was a very good mother,” Wilcox said, adding he is grieving over her loss with friends. “She would pick her kids up after swimming lessons, and I would go with her when she took them home. Then her dad would come over and talk to us. Her parents are very nice people.”

Wilcox said he strongly suspects Jennifer Ramsaran was the victim of foul play.

“I really miss Jen and the kids,” he said.

Ganesh Ramsaran, in an interview two weeks ago, said he has had no contact with Keith Wilcox.

The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office is urging anyone with information about the case to call the agency at 337-1924 or 337-1864.
