  1. We are deeply saddened for your loss of Ronna. She always took time to have a visit and a cup of coffee. I loved her lavender flowers, which she shared, and I still have growing in my garden. We had some memorable times at all the horse shows. Sending comforting prayers to her family.

    Oh my goodness….I know it’s a little late for my memories and my condolences for Ronnalee’s passing. My name is also Ronna Lea….we went to GHS together as well as gaduating in 1964! My special thoughts and prayers go out to her family .. I did have the opportunity to meet her son William many years ago at Sylvan Knob when it was still there. Ronna and
    I did keep in touch once in a while and shared special memories together…what a beautiful person and I know our paths will cross again and will give each other hugs. I never met you Gary but so glad you were in her life and the happiness you shared together. Wow, I just turned 78 and the years just fly by so we need to enjoy each day and I am very blessed to have my husband Bill (33 yrs of marriage) and appreciate every day that our dear Lord gives us. I know she is missed by so many of us. My prayers and love, Ronna (Ridlen) and Bill Shaffer.
