Rhonda was born April 8, 1954, in Havre, to Lloyd and Lois (Crites) Olson. She was raised in Havre, attending school there. Following her school years, Rhonda married Pete Woronik, and gained a stepson. The couple had two children of their own, and Rhonda was kept busy raising the kids and working as a farm wife on their property north of Havre. They moved to Zurich in the late 1980s and later divorced. Rhonda began working for the Havre Public Schools as a bus driver, where her students adored her. While driving bus, she also owned an ice cream shop for several years, which she sold in the mid-'90s.

Rhonda was a hard-working woman, and her grandchildren were her life and her No. 1 priority. She loved to spoil each and every grandchild. She also loved to spend time with her nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Children were drawn to Rhonda. She enjoyed playing cards with friends, chatting about Havre events, watching criminal investigation shows and fishing (especially with her grandkids). She also enjoyed chocolate, iPhone video games and sending kids Black Friday shopping. In her younger years, Rhonda enjoyed sewing, quilting and camping with family and friends. She had a great sense of humor, always surprising her family with quirky ideas and thoughts. She was also known to be a great cook and could tell anyone how to cook anything.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Lois Olson, and her high school sweetheart.

Rhonda is survived by her children, Tamara (Mark) Lamphier, of Havre, Nathan (Ericka) Woronik of Missoula, and Todd Woronik of Havre; her four grandchildren, Brock and Carter Nystrom and Brenna and Landis Woronik; her sisters, Darlene Tonjum of Havre and Kristy Olson of Great Falls; her brother, Terry Olson of Chinook; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
