In Memory of
Rhonda Lynn Watts
-

Rhonda Lynn Watts, "Cissie", 57, born October 15, 1960 passed away on March 30, 2018 in Sugar Land, Texas.  

She is survived by her daughter, Kaylee Watts and fiancé Dalton Wheeler; her mother, Barbara Schomburg and husband Ted; sister, Karen Fairfield and husband Joe; brother, Richard Kiemsteadt and wife Debi; uncle, David Duewall; and nephews, Mark “Buddy” Compton, Jr. and wife Alissa and their son Aiden, Garrett Compton, Hunter Kiemsteadt and Austin Kiemsteadt.  She is preceded in death by her father, Glen Edward Kiemsteadt, Sr.; sister, Sheryl Kiemsteadt; brothers, Glen Kiemsteadt, Jr., James Kiemsteadt and Michael Kiemsteadt; grandparents, Glen M. and Johnnie Kiemsteadt and Effie Duewall.

Rhonda graduated from John Foster Dulles High School in 1978 and went on to attend Alvin Community College and Tarleton State University, receiving the Paul Lawson and George Kennedy Scholarships.  She had a love for theater and portrayed many characters in various theater productions throughout high school and college.

Rhonda was a devoted mother, daughter, sister and friend who cherished her family.  She loved others with a sacrificial love and with her whole heart, never hesitating to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.  She loved being a mother to her daughter Kaylee, doing whatever she needed to do to make her happy.  Singing songs together on the way to school each day was one of many precious memories they made together.

She was employed by EIM Controls in Missouri City from 1991 to 2009.  Although her position was in Accounting, she never hesitated to step outside of her normal duties to assist her peers with whatever they may need.  She loved her job, but it was the relationships she developed with the many people she worked with that she treasured the most.

Rhonda discovered the wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains on a vacation she took in 2005.  The peace she felt there was so overwhelming that she was drawn there several more times, each time expressing that a piece of her heart remained in those mountains.  

In September of 2009, Rhonda suffered a devastating hemorrhagic stroke that launched her into a long and difficult road to recovery. She fought hard and overcame many incredible obstacles that many doctors felt she wouldn’t. She acquired aphasia that caused her to lose her ability to communicate verbally but her years in theater proved to be a valuable asset as she was able to use that experience with expressive behavior.

In February, Rhonda faced yet another challenge after a surgery.  Though the surgery was successful, she came down with pneumonia and went into respiratory distress.   Being the warrior that she is, she fought hard to overcome, making much progress only to face additional setbacks.  After six weeks of battle, her body became tired and the Lord called her home.

Rhonda loved the Lord and is now in His presence, experiencing the joy that is found in God’s eternal promises.

 

2nd Timothy 4:7
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

 

A "Thank You" from Rhonda's family....

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish to express our sincerest appreciation for your prayers and support during this difficult time.  We are blessed to have friends like you and are so thankful for all you have done.  There is no doubt that Rhonda would be touched deeply by the tremendous outpouring of love that has been extended to our family.  Our cup truly overflows.


Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair.  Perhaps you sent a funeral spray; if so, we saw it there.  Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say.  Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day.  Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you very much, whatever the part.

Dear Rhonda,

We love you, and you are with our Lord where we will all eventually reunited.
Although most time you were silent in our Bible study class, we know you love the Bible words and the teaching and the association with your classmates.
