Rhoda A. Verner, September 10, 1951~November 8, 2011, resident of Saratoga, beloved daughter of Euna and Elmer Fought of Saratoga, passed away peacefully at her Saratoga home on November 8, 2011 after a fourteen month battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born on September 10, 1951 in Ohio but was raised in California. She leaves behind her parents, brothers Dennis (Marianne) Fought of San Jose, Daryl Fought of Grass Valley, Charles (Cyndy) Fought of Las Vegas, sisters Michaela (Richard) Lango of Santa Clara, Cheryl (Bill) Milward of San Jose, numerous nieces and nephews and many loving friends. Rhoda devoted more than half of her life to helping companies deliver and operate successful Information Technology (IT) systems. Rhoda was an IT Management Consultant at StrataFusion, a Los Altos based consulting Firm. Previously, she was with Johnson Johnson starting at Lifescan Inc. in 1993. In 1997 she moved to Johnson Johnson Asia Pacific and eventually became the Vice President of Information Management in Asia Pacific. At this time she worked mostly out of Singapore. Previously she was employed as Chief Information Officer for XESystems (formerly Xerox Engineering Systems). Her 30 year career included roles at Gould Semiconductor, Datapoint Corporation and Varian Associates. Rhoda has won a number of awards and accolades and in 1996 was named of the Top 100 Women in Computing (USA) by McGraw Hill. In 2005, she was acknowledged in the new Cisco publication, "Net Impact", for her work in China. She has been a frequent speaker at industry conferences and forums.
Rhoda's lifelong passion was to visit new places worldwide. Fortunately her career afforded her the travel opportunities to travel throughout the Orient. She also traveled with friends and family to most of the other continents. She was well loved and will be missed dearly by many. Services will be held on Monday, Nov 14, 2011 at 10:00 A.M. at the Alameda Family Funeral Home, 12341 Saratoga-Sunnyvale Road in Saratoga.
