Rhonda Fors, the woman who could light up even the gloomiest of rooms with her generous spirit and witty charm, took her leave from this world on November 13, 2023. Born in the quiet town of Leominster, Massachusetts on May 14, 1973, Rhonda was known for her radiant spirit and her knack for turning the mundane into the extraordinary. In the words of Mary Anne Radmacher, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow." This quote seems to capture Rhonda's essence. She was, indeed, a quiet storm of courage and compassion.
Rhonda, a woman of many talents, had a creative soul that knew no bounds. Her love for crafting and picture taking was only matched by her love for her family. She adored her family and was the happiest when at the center of all the family gatherings, capturing precious moments and creating memories that would last forever. It was often said about Rhonda that she was the most beautiful woman on the planet, a beauty that was not only skin deep but radiated from within her generous heart and compassionate soul. Her residence in Fitchburg, Massachusetts was not just a house, but a home filled with love, laughter, and her unique creative touch.
Rhonda Fors is survived by her loving children, Hailey and Hunter Murphy; her cherished grandchildren, Althea and Emma; her supportive siblings, Kelley and Sal Perla and Matt Reed; her cousin, Kevin Brion who was more like a brother to her; and her niece and nephew, Dominique and Lucas Perla. She now joins her parents Carol and Ronald Fors, and her brother James Reed, in the realm that lies beyond our own. We take solace in knowing that her spirit, as lively and vibrant as it was, continues to shine brightly in the hearts of those she left behind.
