Rhonda Lynn Mitchell Scott passed away November 2020, Tampa, Fla.

 

Rhonda was born at home on January 1st,  in Tazewell County of Southwest Virginia, the second child of Stanley Ross Mitchell and Thelma Lesher Mitchell. She remembered a wonderful childhood growing up with brothers and sisters in the mountains and streams she had come to call home. Shortly after finishing high school at Graham High, she enlisted in the Air Force, achieving the rank of Staff Sargent in her six-year tour. Rhonda was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and friend and a devout Christian. She and her husband Jerry have three grown children and three grandchildren. She loved to bake and mastered the art of fudge-making, assuring her popularity during the holidays. Ronni graduated with honors at both Columbus State University, Georgia, and Asbury Theological Seminary, Florida, earning a Bachelor of Science degree specializing in Art and a Master of Biblical Studies, respectively. Rhonda taught art and math classes in private schools until she developed an art curriculum for home schooled children. She turned her garage into an art studio with painting, drawing, pottery, and ceramics. She loved getting her hands dirty in Georgia’s Lizella Clay. One of her most prized moments was when several of her students won ribbons in the Strawberry Festival. When Rhonda moved her family from Georgia to Florida, she made a Vow to God as she crossed the GA/FL boundary line. She pledged her love for him and obedience to his laws. It was not long until she volunteered to be the teacher of an adult Sunday school class. She and her class studied Jesus’ teachings for 20 years until her retiring. Rhonda wanted to make a book for young children to learn about the birth of Jesus. She combined her pottery skills with her writing talent to produce a book (A Donkey’s Little Tale) for parents to read to their preschool children. Rhonda continued her desire to write and joined the Brandon Christian Writers Group. Rhonda will forever be remembered for her caring heart and friends who were all precious to her.

 

She was preceded in death by her father Stanley Ross Mitchell; and brother Freeman Mitchell. Since her death, her daughter, Teresa Eisenman and her mother, Thelma Mitchell have passed away.
