Rhonda Case

December 16, 1955 — September 15, 2018

Rhonda Kay Schommer Case passed away on the Ponderosa Villa in Crawford, NE, on September 15, 2018, after a long courageous battle with cancer. Rhonda was the second of five children born to Joe and Mary Lou (Manchester) Schommer. She attended Assumption Academy through the tenth grade and when it closed, finished high school at Chadron High School, graduating 11th in a class of 145 students. Rhonda attended Chadron State College, graduating in 1977, with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Math. She taught rural schools in Sheridan County for sixteen years. After her marriage and the birth of her son, Zachary, the family moved to Blair, NE. Through the years, Rhonda managed a daycare, worked for the Department of Welfare, and the Salvation Army. She also taught CPR classes and provided GED classes in Blair and Fremont. One of her most challenging and rewarding jobs was teaching GED classes to juveniles on probation. Rhonda returned to Chadron in 2013 to be closer to family. She worked for ESU 13 and just before getting sick, worked at Chadron State Park - a job she loved dearly. She always liked working with children and they liked her. Rhonda was preceded in death by her grandparents and father, Joe Schommer. She is survived by her son, Zachary and his wife Brittany, of Nashville, TN, her mom, Mary Lou Schommer of Chadron, brother, Randy (Brenda) Schommer of Chadron, sister, Ruth (Steve) Baker of Hemingford, NE, brother, Ron (Sharon) Schommer of Sacramento, CA, sister, Renee (Mike) Kindred or Oral, SD, an aunt, Bonnie Goodman of Chadron, NE, several nieces and nephews, and many friends who kept in touch with her through her illness.
