La Rhonda D. (Ronnie) Montgomery

La Rhonda (Ronnie) D. Montgomery
Resident of Oakland, CA. Born in Upland, CA on April 1, 1961. Went Home to be with her Jesus on February 10, 2013.
Rhonda was a uniquely wonderful mother to her three children and grandson, and a loving and supportive wife to her husband. Rhonda was a Woman of Incredible Faith and Joy who loved her Jesus with a depth and fervor that few ever know. She found hope in the midst of sorrow, laughter in the midst of pain, and peace in the midst of trial. Rhonda loved much and served her Lord and His People faithfully in Pastoral Ministry for over three decades and left everyone who knew her with a sense of life and vibrancy. The world is better because she was here and far emptier without her. The void she leaves can only be filled by the great grace and comfort of the Jesus she loved so dearly.
Rhonda is survived by her husband of thirty years, Pastor Tobey Montgomery of Oakland, CA. Her son, Joshua Montgomery of Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Her daughter, La Trisha Montgomery-Kritikos of Dublin, CA. Her son, Christopher Montgomery of Oakland, CA. Her grandson, Jackson Kritikos of Dublin, CA. Her son-in-law, Jason Kritikos of Dublin, CA. Her parents, Johnny and Deanna Bunch of Upland, CA. Her sister, Michelle Palmer of Nashville, TN. Her brother, Darren Bunch of Dewey, OK. Her parents-in-law, Frank and Jo Anne Montgomery of Oracle, AZ. She is also survived by an extended circle of family and friends who treasured her life, mourn her passing, and rejoice that we will see her again.
