Rhodelia was known to many as the “Hardees Lady” from being a hostess in her semi-retirement. She served on the board of Trumpets Of Judah Global Ministries until her death. She had been for many years a member of the Eastern Star Lodge. She was a blue ribbon horse show winner in her older years and enjoyed her church, fishing, cooking, and the antics of her grands, great grand, and great-great-grandchildren. She was very active in her latter years enjoying life until her departure. Most importantly she served the Lord from a very young age and never lost confidence in Jesus and His Word! She was an encourager to others always! Many thanks goes to her private nurses, Kendyl, Sandra, and Robin. Also, others who served her before!! We will see you soon, Mom!
