Rhonda attended Kansas Public Schools before attending Connors State College. Rhonda has worked multiple careers until her final place of employment at Silver Dollar City, where she met and spoke with hundreds of people every day. Those who visited her during her stay in Branson, would find her infectious love of the city. Several were treated with gifts, her thoughts of which shows are the best, and of course a warm hug. Grandchildren would agree, Rhonda has ridden more roller coasters than any other parent. Although Rhonda assisted with multiple hunting trips, her love for animals was unmatched. Rhonda was able to tame dogs, cats, chickens, and wildfowl all together.
All know Rhonda's time was too short. Those who knew her, would all agree, her smile was beyond the horizon, her laughter could move mountains, her energetic drive traveled the world, and her love was felt as the wind. The tears shed for her may fill the oceans, but grief is the cost of love.
Rhonda's funeral service will be at Hart Funeral Home in Tahlequah, OK, On November 20, 2021, at 02:00 P.M, with a visitation taking place on Thursday November 18, 2021 from 9:00 A.M until 6:00 P.M.
