Obituary for Rhonda Diane Erdman (Kopstein)
Rhonda D. Erdman, 60, Weston, died Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at home.
Rhonda was born February 2, 1958 in Reedsburg, WI to Ronald and Darleen (Crane) Kopstein. The love of her life was James Erdman whom she married on December 5, 1998. James preceded her in death on September 30, 2000.
Rhonda truly lived life to the fullest every moment through simple pleasures such as gardening, Canada trips, fishing and cooking. She loved a good home cooked meal and if you could cook you were a favorite in her eyes. Rhonda enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren taking them on adventures or just coming over and bringing them lots of snacks for them to have during the weekend. When she wasn't working she enjoyed taking random trips to the casino not only to gamble, but she loved their buffets as well. One of Rhonda's biggest passions were her flowers. We had to go the Amish every May and buy lots and lots of flowers and boy did she make her pots beautiful. She could make her flowers bloom better than anyone and she took huge pride in them by showing them off hanging around her whole house. She loved to assist others with their flowers and plants as well. Rhonda was a sincere woman who never turned anyone away and saw the best in everyone while always willing to lend a hand when she was able.
