NETTEBURG, Ronnalee, born July 20, 1946, in Takoma Park, Md., to Wayne and Mildred Olson; died August 19, 2017, at home in Silver Spring, Md. When Ronnalee was 6 months old, the family moved to Lebanon, where they served as missionaries for 17 years. She learned Arabic and Arab ways. Her gift of hospitality came from the Arab culture, as did her desire to invite people to her home. In 1964 Ronnalee graduated from the Vincent Hill School, the Adventist boarding academy in India. She attended Union College (Neb.) for four years, graduating with a nursing degree in 1968. She also met Kermit Netteburg at Union, and they married in July 1968. Nursing was her lifelong passion and profession, and Ronnalee worked at hospitals in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Maryland. She taught nursing for 15 years, first at Andrews University (Mich.), and then Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Md., as well as serving as the social committee chair for both schools. She also developed a parish-nursing ministry at the Sligo and Beltsville churches in Maryland. Ronnalee’s desire to invite people home continued throughout her life, and she hosted thousands at their home for meals, and many overnight. She also had a great love for her family. She is survived by her husband, Kermit; their three children: Charity (John) Pitton, Kristin (Michael) Priest, and Olen (Danae Bland) Netteburg; and seven grandchildren: Tobias, Seth and Benjamin Pitton, and Lyol, Zane, Addison and Juniper Netteburg.

Before joining the staff at SVA, Bill was dean of boys at Philadelphia Academy (Pa.) and at Highland Academy (Tenn.).
