McGuire, Rhonda D. (Boggs)

ORRVILLE — Rhonda D. (Boggs) McGuire, age, 68, of Orrville, passed away peacefully after a courageous fight to live after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest on February 12, 2014. When anyone else would have broken, Rhonda stayed strong. She never quit.
Rhonda was a beautiful person both inside and out. Rhonda was born on September 15, 1953, in Orrville, Ohio to Dale and Frances (Werntz) Kendall.  She was a graduate of Orrville High School in 1972, married her high school sweetheart, Tim on August, 5, 1972 in Marshallville and had three wonderful children together. She was a deputy clerk for 24 years at Wayne County Probate Court where she was honored by being presented the flag from the courthouse.
Rhonda was a member of Marshallville United Methodist Church, where she belonged to the Women’s Group.
Rhonda loved being involved with her kids’ lives and now her grandchildren. She loved shopping any chance she could get, especially at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s. She loved traveling, volunteered numerous years with the local United Way, secretly loved Matthew McConaughay’s voice, R&B/ Hip-Hop music and most recently Me TV.
Rhonda had the most beautiful cursive writing. You would never find Rhonda without her L’Oreal Paris # 140 lipstick, yellow comb, a gorgeous scarf, or statement piece necklace and of course her signature scent, Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue perfume.  She would always say, you never know who you may see. You always needed to be ready.
Surviving in addition to Tim, are her parents; two sons, Matthew (Stephanie) McGuire of Oro Valley, AZ, and Jonathan (Lisa) McGuire of Wooster; daughter, Molly (Andrew) Palmer of Medina; two sisters, LuAnn (John) Ellsessar of Sutton, MA and Nikki (Jeff) Drown of Wooster; two brothers, Rick (Gina) Kendall of Marshallville and Mike (Marsha) Kendall of Orrville; and seven grandchildren, Kailey, Colin, Brenden, Kamdin, Kynlie, Chloe and Austin.
She was preceded in death by three nephews, Michael Carr, Michael and Timothy Ellsessar; and several aunts and uncles.
