Rona passed away on the morning of April 26th leaving a lasting impact on those touched by her. She was born in Bridgend Wales and is survived by her sister Chris, nieces and grandnieces/nephews in the UK.
She brought her passion as an artist and educator to the United States, eventually becoming the Associate Dean of the Corcoran School of Art and Design. While there she was a mentor to many and in retirement she continued her mission in the art world as a judge in the International Baccalaureate programs around the DC area.
While Rona not only shared a love for the arts, she also had a strong passion for animals. Those interested in making a donation in her honor can do so to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA). A celebration of her life will be held later in the summer.
