Service: November 10, 2017 1:00 PM
   Location: The Commons, corner of Baxter and Love

The world lost a beautiful person on Saturday November 4, 2017.  Ronda was lying next to the love of her life, Rex, with her children, Alexis (Max) and Morgan, asleep next door in the living room.

Ronda Kleinsasser was born to Marvin and Cinderella Lennick in Dickinson, North Dakota, August 27, 1964.  She was the baby sister to Denise, Dori, Cindy, Vicky and Todd, all of them still on this earth to celebrate her being accepted into Christ’s hands.

She gave birth to her baby girl, Alexis, in 1986 and was blessed with Morgan in 1994 after years of trying. She gained two more children, Eliza and Olivia, when she and Rex began their lives together.  It was a match made in heaven.  They went on a Familymoon celebrating their unity.

Ronda wanted to help people smile and be happy.  Whether she was doing someone’s hair, nails, facial or helping them pick the right outfit, she found great happiness making them feel good about themselves.

With happiness in her heart, she spent countless hours in the stands watching whatever activity the girls were doing.  As the girls became independent, she and Rex enjoyed skiing, hiking, golfing and traveling.  But always, the happiest times were when one or all the girls joined them.

She battled ovarian cancer for the last year, and completed a grueling chemo treatment with amazing results.  She became a favorite of all of her caregivers for being interested in their lives.  It was always about the relationship for her.  After the successful completion of her treatments, she was back to golfing, hiking and shopping.  In late July, she was one of the most unfortunate to be diagnosed with paraneoplastic syndrome.  This debilitating disease never took away her love and compassion for others.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Ronda’s name to Cancer Support Community for PREVIVORS.  For people who have a genetic pre-disposition to cancer; 102 S. 11th Ave., Bozeman, MT 59715.

She loved………….‘‘To the Moon and Back”

Memorial services will be held Friday, November 10th at 1 p.m. at The Commons at the corner of Baxter and Love.
