Ronnie was a golfer, a traveler, a bowler, and a bicyclist, even touring Europe on her bicycle when she was in her 60s. She loved parties and was a fabulous dancer, well into her older years. She was an excellent card player, and enjoyed many games with her girlfriends, family, and grandchildren. In her final years, she enjoyed some success as a freelance food crictic.
Ronnie leaves behind her children, Diane (Ron) Moore and Dennis Frederick, 5 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents and husband, preceding her in death were her siblings Eva Lee (Jimmy) Nunn and Marion (Eleanor) Jacobs.
