Ramona is Jimmy’s father’s girlfriend, who moves in after Sharon’s disappearance. Ramona is a longtime assistant and colleague of Jimmy’s father, and Jimmy suspects that they have been in love for quite some time. She is kind to Jimmy after she moves in, and though Jimmy finds his father’s unabashed sexual relationship with Ramona off-putting, he likes Ramona and wishes her well. When Jimmy leaves home, he occasionally hears from Ramona, who tells him that she is trying to get pregnant, with no success yet. Jimmy assumes that Ramona is killed by Crake’s plague.
