    Rhonda was a neighbor and long time friend. I loved her quick wit, friendliness and her ability to make friends and tease them. Thanks for touching my life !

    Rhonda was such a fun person to be around. I was lucky enough to meet her in grade school and stay connected all these years. Her family and friends will always remember her joy and light.

    I don’t remember a time I didn’t know Rhonda. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of our neighborhood kids. Never saw her in a bad mood, always so kind….she will be remembered always. We are getting a new granddaughter in Mississippi so can’t attend services…love and prayers for her family.

    I went to school with Rhonda. Class of ’73. I never once heard her say anything bad about anyone. She accepted people for who they were. Our lives are so much richer when we meet a person like Rhonda. RIP May God be with your children in this time of need.

    Kids, I am very sorry for your loss. Your mom was a excellent person, hard worker, upbeat, always happy. I babysat for you kids many moons ago when you lived outside of Maquon. May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.
