Rhonda Sue Petty (1941-2017)

As I remember her




My sweet cousin has left us.  Rhonda Sue Petty Thweatt (1941-2017).   Rhonda was the second of four children (daughters) of Wallace Charles Petty (1910-2007) and Thelma Jeannete Cox Petty (1908-1994). 

Rhonda's siblings:  

Harriet
Mary Beth (1944-2008)
Cheryl



Rhonda spent most her formative years in Springplace of Murray County, Georgia.  Her parents were educators first and secondly, farmers.  They raised cattle and chickens for egg production, of of course the daughters provided much of the labor.
Then the family moved to Augusta, then Milledgeville, Georgia.

Rhonda was an artist and art teacher.  She Married,  30 March 1963, in Baldwin County, Georgia, to John Dorman Thweatt (1938-2012).  John too was a teacher.  As her parents were, they were both educators.

They had two children:


Wallace Charles Thweatt.  Wallace became his parents' care keeper. 
Lisa Marie Thweatt (married Daniel E. Kornegay.(3 children)
