Rhonda L. Jellison, 54, of Seymour passed away May 24, 2018, at her home.
Rhonda was born to Wilbur and Margaret (Warren) Sowder on Feb. 12, 1964, in Leon, Iowa. She received her education from Wayne Community Schools, graduating in 1982. On June 24, 1983, Rhonda was united in marriage to Donald D. Jellison and this union was blessed with two children, Joel and Travis.
There was nothing more important in Rhonda’s life than her family and taking care of Donnie. Together, she and Donnie built a warm and loving home that welcomed foot traffic from a multitude of people, family and friends alike, throughout the years. She was always ready to greet each one with a cup of coffee and a smile. Time with her grandkids, from watching them play outdoors to devising Halloween costumes for each, was always time well spent to her.
Survivors include her husband, Donnie; children, Joel Jellison (Shelby) and Travis Jellison (Shelby); six grandchildren: Mendon, Gage, Grayson, Zane, Holdyn and Sutton; brother, Craig Sowder (Candra); nephews, Curtis Sowder (Amy) and Jeremy Vaughn; nieces: Catherine Kastens (Brian), Caryn Sowder and Courtney Sowder; and a motley crew of in-laws too numerous to list.
Rhonda was preceded in death by her parents; sister Pam Vaughn; and a niece, Jessica Vaughn.
Funeral service were held May 29 at the Thomas Funeral Home in Seymour. Interment followed at Shriver Cemetery.
Memorials may be left with the family to be designated at a later date.
