Rhonda Lynn Russo (Rhonda Lynn Olson) of Phoenix, Arizona, was a caring mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She left the world suddenly on April 26, 2022 at age 62 from pneumonia. She was predeceased by her father (Ronald Olson), and she left behind her mother (Jean Olson), daughter (Lianne Liddell), son-in-law (Adam Liddell), granddaughter (Elodie Liddell), sister (Paula Olson), brother (Kevin Olson), and sister-in-law (Kristine Olson).
She was born to Ronald and Jean Olson on September 8, 1959. Shortly after graduating high school in Orem, Utah, Rhonda moved to Litchfield Park, Arizona with her family in 1977. She had a lifelong career as a criminal defense paralegal, working on many high-profile cases. She was a true believer in the justice system, and that everyone had a right to defend themselves.
Rhonda loved learning new things, Star Trek, traveling to Europe, attending blues music festivals, snuggling her Boston Terrier, and spending time with her friends and family. Rhonda will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are so broken by this unexpected loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed. We invite you to make a donation to the Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue in her honor, in lieu of sending flowers.
