Rhonda Miracle Obituary Rhonda Kay Miracle passed away on January 29, 2023, at the age of 73, while on palliative care at St Al’s hospital in Boise, Idaho, after 20 plus years of health challenges from fibromyalgia. She is preceded in death by her sister, Karma Lee (in infancy), mother, Esta Fay Miracle, father, Kenneth Mackey Miracle, Sr, and both sets of grandparents.

Rhonda was born in Twin Falls, Idaho September 21, 1949. She graduated from Twin Falls High School, and went on to pursue several theater-related degrees post-high school. She attended the College of Southern Idaho, where she was very proud to have spent a year as Miss Wool Idaho. She spent most of her adult life in acadmedia and attended college or worked at Weber State, Idaho State University, University of Oregon, Kansas State University, and Boise State University. She spent some time modeling right out of high school and was always active in theater at all levels, including, acting, directing, producing, set design, stage management, etc. One of her favorite roles of all time was playing Helen Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan in The Miracle Worker at Twin Falls High School. During her time in Boise, she spent many years active in the theater community with Boise Little Theater, and they still hold a special place in her heart. She was always passionate about her political beliefs and stayed active in politics until the very end. She was an early, impactful, and prolific volunteer in the grass roots organization “Postcards to Voters”, hand writing postcards to potential voters in support of Democratic candidates all over the United States. During her last month on this planet, she was asked if she had any final thoughts or words of wisdom to share with all of us before she left for the great mystery, the great beyond and this is what she shared: “Love one another. Fight for what you believe in. And when you screw up, admit it.” Rhonda’s family would like to thank the entire staff at St Al’s Hospital for the care and compassion they showed our loved one in her final days. Family and friends are invited to attend an online Celebration of Life on Saturday, March 4 at 1pm MT over Zoom. Friends and loved ones will be invited to share stories of Rhonda during her online Celebration of Life. Please consider making a donation in Rhonda’s honor to the College of Southern Idaho Theater Arts Department in memory of Fran Tanner (one of Rhonda’s favorite teachers at CSI) or Boise Little Theater in Boise, Idaho.
