Ronda was born on Sept. 6, 1957 in Spring Valley, to Emmeth (Bud) and Gwenlyn (Miland) Hovden and was one of seven children, growing up on her family farm in Spring Valley. Ronda loved being head majorette for the High School Band as well as a cheerleader for the Spring Valley Wolves. She loved date nights with her husband where they would go bowling, dancing, have game nights with friends and family, as well as many other adventures. She was a devoted, affectionate, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was sure to attend every game, concert, and any type of event to show her support for those she loved. Music and singing with her family was something that brought her joy throughout her life.
She married Jerry Steinkamp on Aug. 12, 1977 and together they had four children and seven grandchildren. Ronda was also a second mother to many. Throughout her professional career Ronda made a positive impact on many individuals she worked with. She retired after many years with Mayo Clinic as a phlebotomist, a position she took great pride in. To know Ronda was to know a trusted friend. Her kindness and smile will never be forgotten.
Ronda is survived by her children, Jason (Erica) Steinkamp of Grand Meadow, Jodi (Shawn) Mahon of Rochester, Annie Steinkamp of Zumbro Falls, and Rosilyn (Violet) Steinkamp of Byron; seven grandchildren, Dakota, Ella, Madalyn, Mea, Peyton, Charlie and Sawyer; her father and mother-in-law, Leon and Dorothy Steinkamp; her siblings, Larry (Lynette) Hovden, her twin brother, Ricky Hovden, and Roxanne (Brent) Hellickson; her aunts, Dana Loy and Donna Miland, as well as many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry; her parents; her sister, Sonja Hovden; and brothers, Robbin Hovden and Kermit Hovden; as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.
