Donna Rhoda, our precious Mother and Nana, left this earth for her heavenly home on September 7, 2020. Loved by so many, touching innumerable folks, she truly made a difference. She loved her family, friends, the down and out, the addict, her church family, and the Lord. She often reached out in ways that might make others a bit nervous but it was the Lord's work and she labored faithfully. Only this wretched disease, Covid, would prove a formidable opponent. She put up the righteous fight and each of us lost. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edith and Dulith Adams, her beloved husband, Jack Rhoda, precious granddaughter, Megan Flynn, and dear brother, Richard Adams. She is survived by her daughters, Teresa Patrizio (Michael), Woodville, Mimi Rhoda, Tampa FL. Son, Jeff Flynn, Bridgeport. Grandchildren, Tara Abner, Scottsboro, Ashley Schmidt (John), New York City, NY, Timothy Hicks, Huntsville. Great grandchildren, Abigail Abner, Jack Hamilton, David Wilson, Kailey Ellis, Harrison and Georgie Schmidt. Mike Rhoda and Amy Rhoda-Taylor. Special friends, Janice Graham, Cedena Couch, Misty Graham-Flynn, Terry Wilson, Norma Kirkland, Margaret Gross, Marie Westmoreland and the Hardee's Breakfast Club, Brownie and BlueMan. Visitation was at Valley Funeral Home. Service delivered by Bro. Roger Hobbs and Bro. David Moorman at Center Point Baptist Church on Friday, September 11, 2020. Serving as pallbearers, Jeff Phillips, BJ Summers, Mickey Guinn, James Roberts, Randy Batey and Michael Patrizio. Honorary pallbearers, Hoyt Masters, Billy Matthews, Bennie Lenz, Benny Evans, Mack Atkinson, and Caleb Manning. Please honor Donna, her family and friends by wearing masks, washing hands often and social distancing. If all did this, she would be here and I wouldn't be writing this obituary, broken and devastated.
