What a full life lived well!  Rhonda spent a good part of her life being a fitness instructor.  She coached swim teams and also produced her own workout videos.  She also shared an honor only known to a select few:  she carried an Olympic torch for the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Relay.  She was an author of several books including:  Escape from Hell, Shadows of Corruption and Coast to Coast on a piece of toast. She also spent some time designing her own fashions.  She was awarded a life time achievement award from the Red Cross.
