Ronda Hope Starnes Solomon was born on August 16, 1969 and was the only daughter to Willie Daniel Starnes and Ruby (Tootie) Myers Starnes. She lived all her life in Greene County,\nexcept for a short time in Atlanta, GA and was a proudly professed country girl.\nMiss Solomon passed away on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 of natural causes resulting\nfrom her lifetime struggle with diabetes. All who knew Ronda loved her quick wit and sense of humor. She loved her family and friends and was the kind of friend you wanted in your corner. Her\nfamily also included a menagerie of four-footed members. She was known to befriend any lonely, injured or abandoned critter who crossed her path. The more problems they had, the more she loved them. Her current brood included two dogs, three cats and two horses - one named Lonesome who belonged to her late Dad and is estimated to be about 34 years old. Ronda had many occupations over the years, but her favorite was sitting with the elderly and sick. She always said, “I just love talking to old people – I love to hear their stories”. And those who she helped said Ronda was very attentive and took the best care of them. Ronda married Jon Solomon in 1991 but he died tragically in 1993. For these past 30 years, Ronda has kept Mr. Solomon’s grave at Salem cemetery creatively\ndecorated, especially for every holiday. She will now join him there. Miss Solomon is survived by her mother, Ruby Myers Starnes, her grandmother Josie Ruth Weems Starnes, her aunt Debi Starnes, her aunt Anita Myers Tweed, cousins Emily Starnes Emshoff Hecht, LaDeana Tweed Barger, Dean Tweed and her chosen extra family of Chrissy Carter and her sons Bronson Boles and Kenyon Hamilton. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jon Solomon and her father Willie Daniel Starnes. The family will receive friends Tuesday September 27, 2022 from 4-7pm at Jeffers Funeral and Cremation Service Downtown. The graveside service will be Wednesday at 11 am at Salem CP Cemetery. Pastor Justin Barger will officiate.
