She was always kind of an excitement junkie.

She was the type of person “who kept the drawer full of candy,” said Cleveland County Sheriff Dewayne Beggs. Rona Linn Chafey, 35, had worked for Beggs as a dispatcher before being assigned duty as a secretary in the Federal Building about two years ago. Because of her proficiency, Beggs said her talents should be used by the Drug Enforcement Administration in Oklahoma City on a special task force. She was able to keep information confidential, and she was dedicated to her work. “She was a person who really liked her job. I never saw her without a smile. She was always up, very light and a kind person,” Beggs said. Chafey was a graduate of Bethany High School and had attended Oklahoma City Community College and Rose State College. She was a jovial person who did not mind pulling a few pranks on people sometimes. She was married to Raymond Chafey and their children are Misty Monet Chafey and Nicholas Brooks Chafey.
