Rhonda S. Ferguson, loved by a host of family & friends. On Easter Sunday April 17th, 2022 she transitioned with her husband, children, parents, siblings and nephews by her side. For the past several years Rhonda courageously battled cancer, winning multiple times and living her life to its absolute fullest throughout. She kept her condition largely private and chose to lean on her faith and family to live precisely the way she wanted. Her life was unbound with limitless opportunities to love, to mentor and be mentored, to experience and learn new things. Rhonda’s charmed life was full of love, laughter, adventure and unimaginable success. After graduating with her Industrial Engineering degree from Northwestern University and a Juris Doctorate from Case Western Reserve University she had the most incredible and highly accomplished career. She met and exceeded every professional goal she set for herself serving as a chief legal officer, corporate vice president, philanthropic champion and board member. Above these career ambitions stood her unwavering commitment to family. She was immensely proud of and grateful for the beautiful life she created with them. Her impact on everyone she touched is immeasurable and will be felt for years to come. The family thanks the doctors and staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals for their tireless effort and incredible service. We also ask that you respect the family’s privacy as we grieve and process this immeasurable loss.
Everyone wishing to pay their respects to Rhonda and the family is welcome to join them at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens Saturday, April 30th from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM for a celebration of life in typical Rhonda fashion. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to two of Rhonda’s favorite organizations: Girls Inc. Chicago and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture.
