Rhonda Valee Smith

September 25, 1950 — February 14, 2022

Rhonda Willis Smith was born September 25, 1950, in McNary, Arizona to Ronald Allen and Veleda (Penrod) Willis. She passed away peacefully with her family surrounding her on February 14, 2022, in Mesa, Arizona. Rhonda was 71 years old.

Rhonda graduated from Westwood High School in Mesa, Arizona, where she made lifelong friends, and was a Warriorette on the Pom Line. After graduating she attended MCC and performed with the international dance group MYA Dancers.

Rhonda met the love of her life, Ronald Kay Smith, and they were married in the Mesa Arizona Temple on October 17, 1969. After living in Mesa for a few years, they moved to Snowflake, Arizona where they enjoyed raising their six children. Rhonda served in many organizations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was loved by many, while supporting her husband, who served many years as the Stake President of the Snowflake Stake.  Rhonda’s home was always beautiful, reflecting her talent as a designer/decorator. She loved to sew, was a beautiful singer, a fierce racquetball player, and, most of all, she loved to craft with her Grandkids.  She absolutely loved being a Grandma.

Rhonda is survived by her husband, Ronald Kay Smith; their children, Kalee Tenney (Travis), Nicole Brewer (Brett), Kristi Chlarson (Doug), Brittney Smith, Matthew Smith (Kaylee); 25 Grandchildren; 4 Great Grandchildren; her mother, Veleda Penrod Willis; siblings, Keevin Willis (Judy), Stacey Farr, (Gary), Cricket Hatch (Doug), and  Mark Willis. She is preceded in death by her daughter, Valee D’Lynn Smith and father, Ronald Allen Willis.
