Rhonda Nichols Myers Obituary

Rhonda Nichols Myers, age 73, of Mena, Arkansas, passed away on Tuesday, August 17, 2022, at 11:16 a.m.

Born Sunday, December 26, 1948, at the Army Navy Hospital in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Rhonda lived much of her life in Arkansas. Rhonda was a 1966 honor graduate of Francis C. Hammond High School, Alexandria, Virginia. She was well versed in corporate administration having served in several key positions in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Virginia. Her greatest loved was to our Lord Jesus Christ and her family. She was married to husband the late Terry Warren Myers of Hot Springs, Arkansas for 37 years.

Rhonda was of the Christian faith, her devotion and beliefs allowed her life to be joyful, fulfilled with strength, courage, and wisdom, allowing God to guide her daily life. Rhonda shared a positive view of life with all those she met; Always remembering you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you know.

Rhonda was an accomplished artist who enjoyed canvas portraits, scenic views, and specialty items. Teaching artistic techniques was a favored passion for her. Her favorite color was blue. Rhonda found peace in sharing, believing, there were more good people than bad in the world. And forgiving those who violated her trust and confidence. She prayed for the civil goodwill and common unity to return as an American tribute.

Rhonda is survived by her son, Jeffrey D. Myers of Hawaii; stepson, James W. Myers and stepdaughter, Julie R. Hartsel both of Arkansas; and her brother Myron “Keith” Nichols, his wife Marsha Ann Nichols; nieces, Makayla Grace Nichols and Mary Alice Nichols of Acorn, Arkansas; grandchildren, Kasey Justus of Oklahoma, Nichole Hartsel and Aaron Hartsel both of Arkansas; cousins, Cheryl Combs and Debbie Smith of Watson, Oklahoma; and many cousins and family members across the country.
