She worked in landscaping and was a property and engineer manager in the Jacksonville Beaches area for many years.

Rhonda enjoyed being a wife and caring, cooking and baking for her husband, Wally.  She was a detailed and humorous story teller and was passionate about the Jacksonville Parks and Beaches.  She also enjoyed bike riding, camping and all the wildlife that came with it.

She is survived by two sisters-in-law, Beth A. Damian and her husband Victor of Westbrook, ME and Ruth Leathers and her husband Jody of Sangerville, ME as well as Ruth’s children April Noble of Rector, AR, Sally Decker of Sangerville, ME and Sandy Hoitsma and her husband Mike of Vilonia, AR.

May the road rise up to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

and until we meet again.....

May God hold you in the palm of Her hand.


There will be no formal funeral services, Rhonda would want to be remembered lovingly at your own will and on your own time.  Loved always and forever.

In lieu of flowers or donations, spread kindness and compassion to all things and open your heart to what is and what can be.

Rhonda was an amazing woman. My brother found her and wouldn't give up until she accepted him 30 years ago. They saw in each other gifts beyond measure, felt strength and love that few know and feel in a lifetime. So lucky to get to experience her love and passion for all things and especially Wally. They saw the best in each other with this strong love they shared. I remember Rhondas hospitality whenever Ruth and I and/or Victor and I visited Wally and Rhonda. We looked forward to her cooking, especially her lasagna and salad. yum! We loved her stories as she was a gifted story teller, very loving, detailed and humorous. I miss Rhonda and Wally very much. Glad they are together exploring and new adventures again. Much love, Beth and Victor
