She married Johnny Crawford and they started their family of three children; Aubree, Shandon, and Thomas. Rhonda cared deeply for her children and enjoyed many years of the children's activities, school days, and the joys of being a mom. Time passed and relationships changed and in 2004, Rhonda married Tyler Stevens. Although the marriage ended, they remained friends. In recent years, Rhonda met Brad Jacobs, and they shared their lives together and made their home along with Brad's son Zane, in Lemoore, CA. Rhonda was an avid horse rider and spent many hours in the country riding her horse, Yankee. She also spent years breeding and raising Labrador puppies, several of which became beloved family pets. She will be remembered for many attributes including, her contagious laughter, and her sense of humor that was apparent wherever she was. Friends will always carry with them thoughts of Rhonda's extremely loving and caring attitude and her non-judgmental demeanor.
