Dear family of Rhonda, I think of her so often, what a beautiful person and oh how she love Joel, Rachel and Lauren. I loved seeing Rhonda every December at the Cookie Exchange and catching up on the girls. I just knew our Rhonda had the fight to win; my heart sank to hear she lost the fight. I loved working with Rhonda at IBM and am grateful for the gift of our friendship and being blessed by her lively spirit. The candle will always burn bright because of Rhonda. I am grateful for having known Rhonda. My deepest condolences to you.
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Rhonda was one of the nicest most caring mothers that I've ever met. We'll miss her dearly. Our deepest Sympathy. The Halverson Family
To the Vintons, Arner, and Snett families. I share in your sorrow.
May the wonderful memories and deep connections that Rhonda developed with so many people sustain and comfort you.
She was smart and fun-loving, positive and practical, non-judgemental, open and authentic. Rhonda was the first friend I made when I moved to California working for IBM. As single gals and roommates for 4 years we both had a penchant for throwing parties, usually at Linda and Abe's house. She generously provided emotional and financial support when my marriage fell apart and she mentored me into the field of market research. I am grateful to have known her for so long, and experienced the depth and steadfastness of her friendship. I miss her very much.
Lovingly, Barbara Ketchum
Dear Joel, Rachel and Loren,
This is Danica's mom from Horizon Hills and Ms. Elena's class. I'm so sorry to hear of Rhonda's passing. Her combination of intelligence, warmth, candor and humor was a delight to be around. I remember having so much fun with her when we went on the field trip to the Malibu Lagoon. She was such a loving mom and wife and an involved parent in the schools, yet still able to be an accomplished business woman - not an easy feat. She will be greatly missed. I send all my love to you three.
I was so sad to learn of your loss. Our days at Horizon Hills always makes me smile. She left so May beautiful memories may it bring peace to you and the girls.

To Joel and family,
You gave such a moving speech at the funeral, it was so beautiful, yes, unconditional love. She was so fortunate to have you at her side. Rhonda was so devoted to the your daughters and you. What a beautiful person. We wish we had been able to spend more time with her. May all the wonderful times and loving memories you have of her help give you strength during this difficult time. Know that we are here for you, you are certainly not alone. With love and sympathy. Ursula & Mordechai Taylor.
Rhonda was for me what we other Mother's hope to be; tirelessly advocating for her family that she loves so deeply, while continuing to work in her professional life. An example for her daughters that strength intellect and compassion are compatible and all part of what it means to be a woman. Her community building efforts at the school her girls attend inspired. She always was there to lend a hand and brighten with her smiles. Always reaching out to welcome new friends to her circle and keep-up with her friendships despite her hectic schedule. I admired her vibrant enthusiasm for life, her spirit of adventure and her refreshing candor. As a friend I appreciated her open heart, her gratitude for her family and friends and her ability to be in action and lead others forward from their own complacency. Although the world has dimmed your bright light shines on with your beautiful children and in our hearts.
I remember Rhonda from a year I spent as a Horizon Hills team member. Rhonda was always kind, interesting and warm. She made a lasting impression in my life.
Sid and send our prayers to the family. Rhonda will be missed. She left behind loving memories which will be cherished by all.
Love, Sid Olshan & Melody Slotchin
To the Family,
Rhonda was a great asset to Key Info , I always appreciated her efforts and the fun toy basket she would bring by each holiday season, My prayers are with you all in this time, she was a sweetheart.
It was such a short time that I knew her. We met three years ago at our daughters' school, but did not really connect until two years ago. I so enjoyed the short time we spent together. They were such vivid moments, but I always felt truly connected to her as if we had known each other longer. I sure wish there was more time to spend with her. She was a such strong presence, full of life, and a beautiful person. I will miss her dearly. We send our love and any offerings of need to Joel, Rachel, and Lauren. You're in our thoughts and prayers. Please call on us if you need anything.
Dee Goldberg, Anna, Dan, and boys.
Rhonda, you will be missed and always loved. Joel, Rachel, and Loren I love you guys. Remember I'm just a phone call away.
I'm very sorry to learn that Rhonda passed away. I knew her from TEAM Horizon Hills where our kids used to go from September 2009 till June 2011. I haven't seen her for a long time but it is always very sad to learn the passing away of such young moms. No one should have to die at such a young age. And no children should have to lose their mom so young either. I hope she didn't suffer too much and she's been resting in peace.
Rhonda was a work cohort like no other .... she and I grew quickly from our working relationship to become friends in the early 90s while we worked together on many joint and valiant efforts until she had to quit working. All of us who worked with her in the Key Info Marketing Group will carry her in our hearts and carry the laughter and humor with us that she always brought to everything she did. She gave us smiles to last a lifetime.
Dear Joel, Rachel, Lauren and Family. I wish I could comfort you with all my heart. I know how much Rhonda loved you and how proud she was of her family. She was a great co-worker and friend. The cookie exchange will never be the same. I will always remember her intellect, kindness and humor.
To the Snett and Vinton families...I worked with Rhonda at IBM and Key Information Systems. Also, she was part of our IBM Cookie Exchange group that will be celebrating 25 years together this December. We will toast Rhonda and remember her laughter! When I saw her last December, she was filled with joy. You could see it radiating throughout her being. I will miss her. Robin Della Penna
In remembrance of Rhonda at the Annual Cookie Exchange Party, with the girls from IBM and their friends. From all of us I am sharing a personal picture of when we had one of our early parties this one at my home in 1994. We will miss you, Rhonda!
I was part of the Marketing team who worked closely with Rhonda at Key Information Systems. Rhonda was a smart, hard worker who was very passionate about doing a good job. When she became ill, we greatly missed her presence. Now that she is gone, we are dispirited that she will not return. Rest in peace Rhonda - your struggle is over. We must carry on, but I'm sure we'll meet up again before too many autumns pass.
To the Snett and Vinton families.. I have know many people, none like Rhonda. The scope and scale of her talent, and humanity, was boundless. She was an incredible mother, a good friend, an outstanding professional, always great in humor, and honored her relationships. I will miss her warmth, the many laughs we had together, and her embracing celebration of life.
Dear Snett and Vinton family
I am so sorry to hear about Rhonda's passing. Over the years we had only met on few occasions but I know that she and my cousin Betty were close. My condolences are with you at this time. I only wish I could be with you also.

Thank you for giving me the honor of serving your family at such a delicate time in your lives. It is clear to me that Rhonda has made quite an impact on your lives. I'm sure she felt as blessed to have had your love as you have, hers. I pray you find some peace in the way you've chosen to honor her memory.
Joel, Rachel, and Lauren,
Rhonda will be so dearly missed. She was an amazing person with a generous heart, who cared so deeply about others. She touched us with her engaging charm and heartfelt compassion. Most of all, though, what will live on is her dedication to being a loving wife and mom. What she gave each of you will continue to thrive, and we know special memories will bring you healing and comfort with each passing day.
