Rhonda Diane Bull passed away suddenly Thursday September 17th at the age of 39 in Fort Myers, Florida. Rhonda was born February 12th, 1981 to Johnny Ray Bull and Michelle Bull in Morrilton, Arkansas.
Rhonda was the eldest of four sisters. She was like a mother to all of them. She lived in California, Florida, and Connecticut growing up. She finished high school in Florida. She met Jorge Ruiz and had three beautiful children with him in 2002. She fell victim to addiction in 2005. She has spent much of her life serving god, and working to improve herself as a person within the prison system in Florida. She had many special relationships in her life. She loved her sisters Melinda, Charlene and Krystle, her daughters Brianna and Rachel, her son Jorge, her uncle Ron, her mother Michelle, her girlfriend Bernadette, her friends Lynette and Kevin and so many others that touched her life as she touched theirs. She was a genuine, loving, fierce woman. She was loyal. She was selfless when she was herself. Her addiction ultimately took her over again. She deserved more help, more chances, more life then what she was given. She is forever in our hearts and souls. She is loved. She sought god fiercely towards the end years of her life. She longed for his companionship, grace, love, peace, and warmth. In the end, he called her home.
She enjoyed the simplest of things from cleaning the house, to having coffee on the porch. She loved writing and poetry. They were a special release to her. She loved her “eat eat” time with family and friends. She wasn’t hard to please and looked for the good in all things. She was misunderstood by many, including herself. Death wears a hood just as sisters do and it can never be removed.
Rhonda is survived by her three children whom she loved dearly and wished she could know more Brianna Ruiz, Rachel Ruiz, and Jorge Ruiz. She is survived by a granddaughter Arianna Ruiz whom she loved so much. She is survived by her mother Michelle Ann Gordon, her sisters Melinda Jade Gordon, Charlene Rose Bolt, and Krystle Leanne Lee.
A Memorial service will be held Saturday October 3rd, 11:00am at St Andrews Catholic Church 2628 Del Prado Blvd. S. Cape Coral, Fl 33904. Masks are required to attend.
