Rhonda Jo Edge, age 54, of Anchorage, Alaska, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018, after a year-and-a-half-long battle with cancer.
She was born on Dec. 8, 1963, in Ellensburg, Wash., to Carl and Elaine Fleetwood. She moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, when she was 6-years-old, and then to Anchorage three years later, where she lived the remainder of her life.
Rhonda attended Anchorage Junior Academy during elementary and middle school, and graduated from Service High School in 1982. Shortly after graduating, she met her future husband, Mark Edge, and the two were married in November 1984. Rhonda and Mark were blessed with two wonderful children, Josh and Megan, in the years that followed.
Throughout her life, Rhonda loved to spend time with her family, working on all kinds of crafting projects and getting outside to enjoy all that Alaska had to offer, from four wheeling and camping in the summer, to snowmachining and spending time at the family's cabin in the winter.
As a testament to her fun-loving, adventurous spirit, Rhonda also loved to travel, especially if the trip entailed warm weather, the ocean and a soft, sandy beach. And during her nearly two-decade career with Alaska Airlines, she took advantage of opportunities to work in cities all across the United States, from Anchorage and Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to Boston, Mass., and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Rhonda is survived by her husband, Mark; her children, Megan and Josh; her mother, Elaine; her brothers, Steve and Doug; and many sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
A funeral service will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at 6 p.m., at the Hillside O'Malley Seventh-day Adventist Church in Anchorage. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to the Save the Manatee Club, at savethemanatee.org.
