Ronda Toner Festival

We were very sorry to learn of her passing.  I've also attached a photo that can be found in Obituary - Death Notice and Service Information on the "SMH" website.
Ronda's obituary was published in "The Sydney Morning Herald" of 12 July 2013 -

TONER, Ronda Joy - passed away surrounded by her loving family and friends.  Renowned music publicist. 14 January 1947 - 10 July 2013.
Loving partner of Pius and sister of Narelle.  Aged 66 years.
Ronda's family and friends are warmly invited to attend a Celebration of her Life to be held in the Hillside Chapel of Palmdale Memorial Park and Crematorium, Palmdale Road, Palmdale on Thursday (18 July 2013), commencing at 1:30 pm.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Cancer Research Foundation. 

After her retirement, Ronda had moved up to the Central Coast of NSW.  

Some relevant comments to Festival Records are in the Guestbook -
"Her partner in later years, Pius made Ronda's life complete.  What a lady.  We have no doubt that Ronda is probably in the midst of organising the angels for the biggest promotional concert of their existence." - Graham & Michelle Brown
"I just heard at 5 pm today (18th) that Ronda has passed away.  So sad.  I remember her well from my days at Festival Records.  She was vibrant and cheerful, always helpful and a great person to be around. RIP" - David Alexander
"Happy memories of Ronda, a true professional and a pleasure to work with.  I remember how very happy Ronda was when she met Pius.  Our thoughts are with you, Pius." - Shelley and Dale Juner

I have attached a photo posted in Guestbook -Ronda and her partner Pius. It would have been taken in the Central Coast region.
