Rhonda Cousineau Jackson, 51, of Panton

PANTON — Rhonda Cousineau Jackson, 51, of Panton, passed away Dec. 1, 2021. She was born on April 10, 1970, to Helena and Ector Cousineau.

Rhonda was a 1988 graduate of Otter Valley Union High School. She worked in the hospitality industry before her position at Kinney Drug stores as a Pharmacy Technician. She was a dedicated employee for 12 years at the Vergennes location. Her family has raised beef cattle on the Jackson farm.

Rhonda valued the simple things in life, and made sure everyone knew that kindness, love, and laughter were the most treasured parts of life. Her caring and compassionate nature could be seen through her random gifts to friends, usually in the form of food and trinkets. Her love of the little things was shown in her dedication to her children, where she was everyone’s FFA mom, and the loudest voice on the softball bench. She supported her kids in everything they chose to do, and her love was unconditional. She shared a special relationship with her husband, David, and they were always watching out for each other.

Rhonda loved a good book, and often reminisced about growing up in the quiet parts of Vermont. She loved going for fall foliage drives through the mountains and seeing the first flowers bloom in the beginning of spring.  Gardening and cooking were two of her passions.

Through many hardships in her life, Rhonda was determined to show people that love was the special ingredient to make anything better. Her infamous laugh usually interrupted most of the jokes she told, but her goal to make others smile was always accomplished.

Rhonda was preceded in death by her father, Ector Cousineau.

Rhonda is survived by her husband, David Jackson; her children, Nicholas and Emily; her mother, Helena Cousineau; her brothers, Glen (Christa) of Orwell, Vt., and Jeffery (Paula) of Brandon, Vt.; and niece, Claudia, and nephew, Will.

Plans are being made for a Celebration of Life which will be held in April 2022. ◊
