Ronda Lee Cole

November 11, 1966 — July 8, 2022


Ronda Lee Cole, age 55, of Wyalusing, PA, passed away at home surrounded by the love of her family on Friday, July 8, 2022.


          Ronda was born on November 11, 1966, in Corning, NY, the daughter of Ronald Milton Cole, of Wyalusing and the late Donna Marie Preston Cole, who passed away on December 13, 2018. Ronda graduated from Wyalusing Valley High School in 1984 and then obtained a degree from Mansfield University in 1988. After college, she moved to New York City where she resided on the Upper West Side. Ronda found that New York had ample opportunity for discovery in both herself and her passions, some of which included painting and photography. She came back to Wyalusing in 2005 as her mothers’ health was failing; devoting herself to the care of her mother. Being back on the farm her passions shifted towards the simple pleasures in life such as being surrounded by and caring for family, riding/showing her beloved horses Cruz and Snooze, and sharing quiet cups of coffee with her kitties.


          Ronda enjoyed being outside and immersing herself in nature. She loved to hear the sounds of the birds, she enjoyed taking long walks/runs, and overall leaned into her calling of being a free spirit. She was a lover of all creatures, always rescuing anything that came to the porch. She was active over the years in local equestrian events and training. She was loved by all who knew her, and will missed deeply. Ronda would hope that everyone who knew or who was touched by her, would continue to spread love and kindness to others through good deeds and actions, so that her memory lives on.
