Rhoda was one of the most dependable people I know. Always willing to help with anything, loved cooking and plants which we talked about constantly. She enjoyed the old fashioned fruit cookie I make every year around Christmas. When I would give them to her she would state, I know what I am doing tonight,having a cup of coffee and my cookies on the porch. I gave her some flowers for her back yard she called when they were all in bloom and was delighted with how they looked in her yard. She bright smile will be missed. My prayers are with her and her family which she deeply loved.

Rhoda. Good friend and co-worker. I will always admire you for the way you would handle any adversity life brought you. Hard worker, never complaining and so willing to help whenever needed. Judy and I will miss you dearly . You made our meetings for breakfast and lunch so much more fun.

Rest In Peace Mrs. Lennon. Some of my best memories growing up were spent with Denise in your home on Tampico. Mr. Lennon and you both always welcomed me into your home. You’ll always be remembered with wonderful thoughts. ❤️

Oh Mommy,
I just do not know what we will do without you here. You were our rock. You helped us with our troubles, encouraged us, gave us strength, brought us together, feed us and loved us all. You will be missed beyond measure. All my love, Denise
