Rhonda Marie Terry

In a quiet whisper, Rhonda Marie Terry, age 63, transitioned on august 24, 2023. Rhonda was born on March 22, 1960 in New Orleans, at Charity Hospital of LA, to her mother and father, Lottie Mae Terry and Robert Marks. She attended 11th Avenue and graduated from Mohawk Highschool. Rhonda was blessed with a loving and caring family. A strong heart and a laugh that could bring others together. A true star. In 1976, she gave birth to her oldest Monica Terry, followed by her second, Brittinie Odoms, in 1979. Not too long after, she gave birth to her only son, Ike Terry, followed by her youngest, Lakischa Terry, in 1982.

She gave us her all, she loved all her kids. She handled each one of us according to our personalities. The youngest was spoiled and
could do no wrong, the only boy was a momma’s boy with her second oldest, she was never soft with, because they had similar
personalities. My mom always said she treated me this way because I was strong spirited. I’m grateful for that. With the oldest, she
treated her like an only child. She would be fragile with her first born. She loved hard and I will always remember how strong, fierce, courage, sassy, classy, and sensitive. Mom was a spitfire. She loved to dance. She was an expert card player. She was always about family and gave her last for her loved one’s. She provided and guided the best she could. I will aways miss my twin, my friend, my role model, my mother. – Brittinie

I remember the day I went into labor with my oldest son Puny, Mommy was at work. I called her like, “This baby ready”. She sent an
ambulance to the house, and I opened the door and told them I wasn’t riding with them and closed the door in their face. When I
say she was mad, she came to the house all the way out east to get me. We got to OSU North in 10 minutes and gave I birth to her
oldest grandson. No one is perfect, but she did her best and more. I love you for that. I would fight the world for you. I miss you and love you so much. When you left, a part of me left. Get your rest, my Queen. Until we meet again, Love, Your Baby Girl. – Lakischa

Every time I would come to visit, I remember Rhonda would pick me up every time at the bus station. The first thing she would say
is, “Hey Big Panties.”. That’s what she would always call me. Then say, “Don’t start no shit about staying with nobody while you are
here, because the answer is no.” I would just look at her and start smiling. She would know I was going to say, “I’m going over other people’s houses.” She’d say, “I’ll take you over there, but you not spending the night.” like she’s somebody’s Momma. But one thing for certain, two things for sure, I didn’t spend the night nowhere but her house. – Beloved Sister, Tonya

She loved so many things the world offered, from Traveling the world or eating. And we know she loved to eat. But don’t let your
food be nasty because she would not hold her tongue to tell you about it. But there was nothing more she cared about then family.
She lived her life moving forward, not thinking of herself, but of her loved ones. Her grandchildren, and great grandchildren were
her life. Nothing more she loved then them. She was always there, every even from basketball, soccer, track, football, cheerleading.
You name it, she put in effort. She made it her mission to be there and if she couldn’t, she tried. She was motivation for them all,
pushing them to live the lives they envisioned. Late night conversations, them calls asking how our days were going and just happy
to see her family flourish and row, she never seen no wrong in not one of her grandkids.

Rhonda was a child of God, and a conqueror of overcoming. As she walked her journey with her head high, her actions were not for
herself, but for family. She pushed love and forgiveness, unity, and strength. As she would say “All right now” signified her excitement over the little things, like time with each other. As her marathon came close to an end, she gave everyone the call of unity on August 21, 2023, wanting to spend her remainder around her loved ones. She spent her last moments with her children and grandchildren and spirited her for her final moments. On August 24, 2023, she was called home to her eternal peace, from which she heard the call of Jesus. Then she WON.

Psalm 23; 1-6 “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green
pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of
righteousness for His name’s sake.”
