Obituary for Rhonda Claire Wessell-Martinez

Rhonda Claire Wessell-Martinez, 62, of Billings, passed away at her home December 27, 2018. She was born October 2, 1956 in Butte, Montana. Rhonda was the daughter of Lawrence and Esther Wessell. The family lived in Butte, Great Falls and later settled in Billings. Rhonda graduated from Billings West High School in 1975. She was married to Albert Martinez, and out of that union, two children were born, Cynthia Claire and Joseph Albert.

Rhonda was employed at Toys’ R Us for 21 years, and she received many awards and made many friends. She also was involved with the Big Sky Blues Festival, Relay for Life and Alive After Five. Rhonda attended Elevation Church. She enjoyed a good pasty, shopping and the warmth of conversation from her many friends and family members. Rhonda loved her parakeets. She had an infectious smile, giving heart, and would offer kind words of encouragement to those that needed a lift. Rhonda loved talking about her Butte family, and one of her fondest memories was attending the family reunion in 2011. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.

Rhonda is survived by her daughter, Cynthia Claire Martinez-Espinosa (Steve); son, Joseph Albert Martinez; grandsons, Dante Lopez, Donovan Nick and granddaughter, Whitne Burns; brothers, Rick Wessell (Carrie) and John Wessell (Anna). She was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Martinez; sister Marcia and brother-in-law Dale Owen; parents, Lawrence Joseph Wessell and Esther Montana Vigus; niece, Sophia Wessell; grandparents, William John and Mabel Jane Vigus. She has extensive family in Billings, Butte, Utah, California, Oregon and Washington.
The family suggests remembrances be made to any animal care shelter program
