Rhonda was the beloved Neena to her five grandchildren Olivia Callas, Violet Valentine, Ariannah Barnes, Scarlett Kay Barnes, and Nicholas Barnes. Her daughters and grandchildren were the delight of her life. She was special to them and they meant the world to her. Rhonda’s eyes would take on a glow of joy when she said their names.
