Rhonda (Bryers) died suddenly in Honolulu in September 2007, struck down by the "superbug" MRSA.  Rhonda was classically trained, but sang mainly popular music and her own songs, becoming entertainer of the year for four years in a row in New Zealand in the 1980s.  She moved to Hawaii in 1989, part of a line of New Zealand singers, including John Rowles, Frankie Stevens and Howard Morrison, who found fame in Hawaii.

TRIBUTES

For the rest of my life I am going to miss you every single day.  Keep up the good work babe, till we meet again.  I love you to bits. Hine e Hine - Sherry and Roger Weatherley (click here to view Sherry's full tribute to Rhonda)

I just found this site and read Sherry's tribute to this wonderful woman.  How lucky you have been to have known her for all of those years and to have been such a large part of her life.  I knew her far too briefly but what I did know I did love.  I too will miss her every day for the rest of my life - Judy Wiener

It was such a shock hearing Rhonda was no longer with us, she was a good friend for all the 29 years I knew her and a good person.  She is greatly missed and I hope that a fitting memorial will be placed in her final resting place back home - Norma Alexander and family (Australia)

My deepest condolences to Rhonda's son and the members of her family.  She was a great entertainer with a fantastic voice.  We will miss her - Donna
