Passed away tragically February 28, 2011 in a snowmobile accident in Montana. Ronda loved life and lived it to the fullest. She had a passion for helping others and contributing to her community. Ronda owned and operated the Otis Grill and loved all her customers. First and foremost she was a loving wife and mother. Ronda's love of horseback riding, snowmobiling and huckleberry picking were renowned. An extremely competitive person she feared nothing. Ronda and Vance's cabin at the Yaak was built with love and a special place for the family. Ronda had a strong faith in God which sustains the family in this sorrowful time. She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years Vance; son Vance Jr; daughter Nicole; stepsons Michael and Justin; parents John (Bev) Klomp and Karen (Ron) Fritz; in-laws Wade (Darlene) Emerson; brother Scott; sister Tammy Ford; stepbrothers Vince and Perry; stepsisters Kellee and Karlyn; brothers-in-law Jesse (Kathy) and Craig (Heather) Emerson; sister-in-law Kristi; numerous nieces and nephews; and countless friends.
