EUBANK, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A former Miss America from Kentucky died on Saturday.

Venus Ramey was named Miss America back in 1944. 

She moved to Washington to work during World War II, and then won the Miss District of Columbia crown before being named Miss America. 

More recently you might remember her making national headlines in 2007 for shooting at two people trying to steal from her then holding them at gunpoint until the sheriff could get there. 

Venus Ramey was 92 years old.
