Manitoba will commemorate the life of Rhonda Commodore by naming a lake in her honor. Commodore was a dedicated correctional officer who lost her life while serving her community and the province. She began serving as a correctional officer at The Pas Correctional Center in 2000 and was chosen to be part of the officers honor guard in 2004. On November 6, 2014 she was killed in a motor vehicle collision while transporting inmates from The Pas to Dauphin.
This is the second lake named this week. On Monday it was announced a lake would be named to honor the life and legacy of RCMP Constable Dennis Strongquill. He was a 20 year veteran with the RCMP who was shot and killed in the line of duty on December 21st, 2001.
Both Commodore Lake and Lake Strongquill are located about 45 kilometers north of Flin Flon with the decisions unanimously supported by Flin Flon’s Mayor and Council earlier this month.
