Rhonda was born to parents Ralph and Wanda Richmond on October 1, 1957 in Marion, KS. She grew up as the eldest of three and graduated from Marion High School in 1976. She then attended floral school in Kansas City. Rhonda, along with her parents, operated Conyers Flowers for several years in Marion. In 1982, she gave birth to her son, Damion. Rhonda also worked at the Marion Co-op and Marion Manufacturing. She enjoyed gardening and helping out at Aunt Bee’s in the greenhouse. Rhonda also enjoyed cooking for family and friends and was always willing to make rice krispy treats, potato salad and german chocolate cake, with a double batch of icing.
Rhonda was an avid sports fan. She enjoyed watching the Kansas City Chiefs, KU Basketball but most of all, watching Damion play basketball throughout his high school and college years.
Rhonda had a love for dogs. They held a special place in her heart and were a great companion to her over the years. While she was a resident at Kidron Bethel, she looked forward to visits from the therapy dog and insisted on giving him treats even when he wasn’t supposed to have them.
