Rhonda Myers White, 64, of Beaufort, South Carolina and wife of Charles Joseph White, passed away April 23, 2019.
She was born October 29, 1954, to the late Ralph and Alice Myers, in Greenville, Pennsylvania. Rhonda graduated from Greenville High School in 1971 and graduated with a degree in Pharmacy from Ohio Northern University in 1976.
She married her high school sweetheart, Charles Joseph White in 1978. Rhonda is survived by her husband of forty years and their two daughters, Lacy Thompson (Jay), of Holly Ridge, North Carolina; and Rachel Bennett (Brandon), of Belton, South Carolina; two grandchildren, Colin and Ellie Thompson; her brother, Marc Myers of Union City, Pennsylvania; and her sister, Allyson McCann (Michael) of Greenville, Pennsylvania.
When they relocated to South Carolina for Chuck’s job in the early 80’s, Rhonda gave up her original career to stay home and raise her girls. Over the years she was a girl scout troop leader, and took great pride in chauffeuring her girls to and from and cheering them on in their various activities. What started as volunteer work and substitute teaching, eventually lead to a 26 year career in the Beaufort County School system.
Rhonda enjoyed singing in the Carteret Street UMC choir for many years, and was an avid reader. “The book was better”.
