Rondrea Love Anderson, 7, passed away Wed., May 15, 2019, along with her mother, Radiance, and siblings, Patience, Arleone and Byra, in an automobile accident.

Rondrea was born July 5, 2011, to Ronald Morris and Radiance Wright in Springfield, Missouri.

Rondrea led a life full of exuberance and made sure to shine that light on anyone she came into contact with. Others were drawn to her with hopes of basking in that glow. Her sense of humor was lively and energetic like her mommy and her smile was continuous. She was a pillar of strength in some of the toughest times for her mom as they leaned on one another for support. Rondrea was always ready to help and found great joy in being the big sister to her younger siblings.

She had a pure heart, looked out for others and was always happy to love and be loved. Which is why her name is so perfectly beautiful: Rondrea “Love” Anderson.

She is survived by her father, Ronald Morris; grandparents, Diane Merriweather and Maurice Wright; aunts and uncles, Shaundale Coleman of Columbia, Sylvester (Adriane) Davis of Nixa, Missouri, Maurice Wright III of Springfield, DaQuail (Tomeka) Patton of Columbia, Trinity (Cory Tindle) Wright of Springfield and Kiara Seats of Springfield; and cousins, Donovon Parker, Sylijah Davis, Sylayah Davis, Allyana Davis, Emmilyn Davis, Ashylus Davis, Atticus Davis, Cory Tindle Jr., Cruze Tindle, Samiyon Meyers, Samijah Meyers, Daleshaun Coleman, Dajanae Coleman and Dariana Coleman.
