Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Ronda Margaret Duggie, age 81

Ronda Margaret Duggie, age 81, of Jacksonville, Arkansas, went to be with the Lord on December 30, 2022. She was born on September 8, 1941 in Worcester, Massachusetts, to the late Everett and Alice Douthwright.

Ronda grew up on a farm in Massachusetts. This is where she formed her life-long love for animals. She lived in Japan as a military spouse, and she never left her care for animals behind.

Ronda is preceded in death by her husband Alan Duggie; parents Everett and Alice Douthwright; and brother Bliss Douthwright.

Ronda leaves behind her children Diana and James Weimer, David Everett Duggie, and Matthew Kenneth Duggie; and grandchildren Christopher Alan Weimer, Kathleen Marie Weimer, Trinity Duggie, Gabriel Scott Duggie, and Cloud Thomas Duggie. She also leaves behind her beloved Rat Terrier, Clair; African Gray Parrot, Buzzy; and her Umbrella Cockatoo, Cuddles.

A memorial in Ronda’s honor will be announced at a later date.
