Rhonda will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend and aunt. She lived her life to the fullest and could often be found at her favorite hang-out spot, Murphy’s on Main Street, playing the juke box, doing a little dance and drinking her Dr. Pepper. Even when she was going through the toughest chemotherapy, her smile and sweet personality could make anyone’s day, and she never met a stranger.
She will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by many. Her memory will live on through all the lives of us whom she graced with her unique spirit.
