Rhonda Rae Sheldon, age 63, passed away peacefully in her home, early in the morning, on August 14th, 2019. Rhonda was born to Robert and Doris Doe in Lansing, Michigan on February 29th, 1956. Her siblings include Victor, Duane, and Bobbie.

Rhonda worked for Delta Dental for a few years, but eventually ended up working for the Michigan Department of Treasury for 40 years, until she retired. She had two wonderful children, Eric (24) and Hailey (22). She raised them in Holt, Michigan where she would spend her free time showing her children the joys of the Food Network and HGTV. Rhonda always made sure that her children had a home cooked meal every night after they returned from school. Her love of cooking was passed on to her son, Eric.

Rhonda loved small animals, especially Chihuahuas. She owned four of the them over the course of her life, two of which she left behind with her children. Her care for these small furry family members is reflected in her daughter, Hailey, who continues to care for them and making sure they find another caring owner like her mother. Rhonda was a caring mother who always made sure she was there for her children, holding on to life long enough to see both of her children marry their spouses. She was loved and will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

A visitation for Rhonda will be held at South Lansing Christian Church at 3:00PM on August 29th, 2019, with a memorial at 4:00PM, and dinner to follow.
