Rhonda Kae Gallop sneaked past St. Peter and broke in the Gates of Heaven on Thursday, August 26, 2021. Those who know Rhonda know her as a fighter. Since 2016 she repeatedly astonished medical personnel and her family by defying all odds as she continually fought to live. She had no problem giving the one finger salute to anyone who doubted her!

Rhonda was born in Sioux Falls SD on November 12,1950 to Flavain and Avis Theel.
She was married to Leonard Pauley from 1982-1994. She married Dennis Gallop in 1995 and the couple made their home in Jasper Mn.
Rhonda is survived by Children: Dawn, Bradley, Branley, Dominic, Anne. Grandchildren: Jamie, Gage (wife Allie), Jaden and Keagan
Step children: Patty, AJ, and Michelle along with numerous other relatives and friends. She was proceeded in death by many loved ones who are all joyfully celebrating her arrival!
Rhonda will be remembered for her unshakable faith, inner strength, stubbornness, her witty/sarcastic sense of humor and her love of Mountain Dew.
Even though she wasn’t always able to express it appropriately she loved her family deeply and is incredibly proud of her children and grandchildren.
In honor of Rhonda her loved ones encourage each of you to remember that hurting others will not heal you. Instead of kicking people when they’re down, reach out your hand to help them up, hold yourself accountable and look for opportunities to “show up” for each other.
A celebration of life visitation will be held 3:00-5:00pm Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Anderson-Jones-Corcoran Harrisburg Funeral Chapel, 110 W. Willow, Harrisburg, SD. www.harrisburgchapel.com

    Was shocked to hear of this, my sympathy to the entire family! I got to know Rhonda when we gave her a ride on the transit bus to dialysis. Her and I enjoyed talking about gardening. I’d bring her a tomato or cucumber or a few green beans when I had a few extra. She was delighted! Prayers to you all, I will miss her.
