Rhondda Lynn Black, 58, peacefully passed away in Houston, TX, on July 12, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Rhondda was born in Tyler, TX, on February 11, 1962. She created childhood memories all over East Texas as her father pastored at many different churches. She graduated from Hudson High School in 1980 and received her Associates Degree in Psychology. The study of human beings fascinated her.

Rhondda is preceded in death by her father, Marcus Earl Black, and many numerous adored pets.

Rhondda is survived by her mother, Mary Lynn (Sanders) Black, brother Mark Black and nieces Hannah and Rebekah Black, and close friend Tara Blackwell. She was loved and will be missed by many family and friends.

Rhondda was a Project Manager during her careers at Xerox, A&E Graphics and Wabash Feed Store. But her project management skills didn’t stop at work. She truly enjoyed managing unique and fun gatherings of friends and family, trips to obscure, beautiful locations, and bountiful garden projects.

After her pets, the great outdoors was her greatest love.

Trips on her motorcycle with her riding friends was a joyous occasion she always looked forward to. Ride on, Ride safe, Ladies. Getting her hands dirty in the garden was a calming, meditative activity she’d loved since childhood. It thrilled her to see the literal fruits of her labor.

Towards the end of her journey she found comfort and reflection at the Victory Worship Center in Houston. Thanks to Pastor Tremayne and Vicki Simoneaux.

A small, private graveside service will be held on Friday, July 17, 2020, at 2pm at Cold Spring Cemetery in Garrison, TX.

Honorary Pallbearers: Keith Youngblood, Lance Youngblood, Jackie Eddings, Ray Sanders Jr, KT Allison, Jan Pate

As you know, Rhondda loved all living things. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to Rescued Pets Movement in Houston, TX (link on Rhondda’s Facebook page) or take needed items to your local pet shelter.

This is a quote Rhondda wrote not long ago: “I have lived adventurously, I have loved passionately, I have laughed until I couldn’t breathe. My spirit has been elevated to amazing heights, swimming in abundant joy. I have been surrounded by love from many friends and an amazing family since the day I was born. I am grateful, but the best is yet to come.” -Rhoni Black

You will be truly missed my friend...by me and so many others. You were one of a kind. You touched me personally by your spirituality! All those motorcycle rides we had...and you and everyone was so patient with me. I only wanted to ride on feeder roads because i was not a confident rider. You suggested in your own gentle way to get an EZ Tag. (instead of saying we need to speed it up!) LOL...so i did. I became a more confidant rider...and the result was i then started riding on the freeways! We all had so much fun on our rides...
I'm so glad i stopped by that day at Wabash to say hello and have interesting conversations as we always do.
That time when i met the group...(and thank you for including me because i was not at a good place in my life)...can't recall the name...it's where they sell all kinds of sausage and beer. We laughed so hard that we peed in our pants! I can't write that here... it was classic Rhoni humor!!!!
You are a true leader...then and now in so many ways...love you!

I will miss you Rhondda! You have Always been a good friend. I was blessed to see you again, by Chance at Wabash Feed, just a few months ago. I have such FOND memories of us, since first working together at Citicorp, all the Halloweens we dressed up together, all the dogs we helped together...all the lunches at Ninfa's on Post Oak when you were at A&G.

Love you my friend............

I don’t even know how to begin but my dear friend you will be missed by so many. I remember us getting our first motorcycles together the Yamaha V-stars and learning to ride for the first time. We had so much joy on our faces laughing as we attempted the freeways for the first time. The numerous trips we took on the cruise to the Caribbean and You scuba diving and all the classes you took to get prepared. We had so much great memories and now I have moved back to Tyler and was looking forward to catching up with you again. Words can not explain what you meant to me. Prayers go out to your family ! Loves you !
