Rhodena, you will forever be remembered in my heart and mind as a wonderful human who always saw the best in others, who showed compassion and caring to her patients, a mother who loved her children to the depths of her soul. The world is a better place because you were here and I know that your amazing children will live their lives by the values you have taught them. Rhodena thank you for showing us all that you do not have to be defined by your health. You are an absolutely incredible person!!!
All my love my friend.

Ahh Rho so many wonderful memories from a nervous mom/coach watching Danielle try to win a championship in a shootout in Stoney Creek to a proud mom/coach beaming with pride watching Danielle being hugged by all her teammates in celebration as she scores. To the caring/loving trainer who would go out and help a player as they got injured with compassion and Tender care needed. So many wonderful memories I could go on and on.

To Lou, Danielle,Dominic and family our thoughts and prayers go out to you.

On behalf of Brett, Cassie and Dawn our deepest condolences

Our memories of Rho will always be of laughter and fun. Many, many fun times with our kids at hockey, away tournaments at the hotels, and watching games. Such a super devoted hockey mom!
She'd always lean into you as she sat in the stands and watched Danielle skate around the ice, almost moving with her. It was adorable. She was adorable. I always enjoyed laughing, and talking with you Rho, never a dull moment. You accomplished so very much in your life, so many people love and respect you, you raised amazing, wonderful children and have left a legacy of greatness. Love you. From all the Fennells.

The world has lost a beautiful soul. I am going to miss seeing your smiling face and (fierce level of competition) at the diamonds. My condolences to your beautiful children. May all of the wonderful memories you all made together carry them through this heartbreaking time. Rest in Peace Rhodena. You will be missed.

I went to high school with Rho, and as life seems to be doing of late... reconnected with her through Durham College. When she was in the office she would always poke her head in and say hi and then the reminiscing would start. What I could tell was she loved teaching and loved her children. You should all be very proud of your mom as I am so sure she is of all of you. The care you showed towards your mom when she needed it most is amazing..... just remember all of the wonderful things....
You are all in my thoughts .....

This picture holds a special meaning to me. I took this picture the day I told Rho (Momma Boo) that she was going to be a Grandma 💜
