February 28, 1952 - October 12, 2019
Rhonda Gay Dodd, age 67, passed from this life on Saturday morning of October the 12th, 2019. She was born on February 28, 1952, in Birmingham, Alabama daughter of the late Archie Bonner and Ernesteen Kizziah, and sister to Jane Bonner Lee and Suzie McGovern. Rhonda is survived by her husband, Lewis Dodd; two sons and one daughter in law, Cassidy Bonner (Lisa) of Hoover and William Chasteen of McCalla; stepdaughters and sons in law, Lisa Nolen (Gary) and Donna Shelton (Dale); grandchildren, Brittany Bonner Tschida, Aaron Tolbert, Breeanna House, Tiffani Chasteen, Alex Chasteen, Emily Shuttleworth, LeeAnn Shuttleworth, Hayley Oglesby, Stephanie Oglesby, and many others who loved her as sister, mother, and grandmother in the bonds of friendship. She is also survived by dear friend, Evelyn Boothe, with whom she lived. Rhonda was, first and foremost, a family woman and true Southern lady. She was proud of her sons and delighted in her grandchildren. She loved to get dressed up for any occasion, but could just as often be found fishing, watching the sunrise, or even running in and out of a sprinkler with her grandchildren. Rhonda had a soft spot for any creature needing food or love and could often be found feeding the fish at her home on Woodland Lake, birds on her deck, or later the cats and kittens in her apartment community. This love extended to people also, as is evidenced by the many young people who called her by a number of names coming back to that sacred title of “grandmother” and nothing made her smile more than that. Rhonda’s smile was known and loved by many over the years as she lived and worked in Bessemer and McCalla, Alabama. She made many friends and shared many laughes as she waited on her customers at Ho Bo Jo’s, Tannehill General, and Ms. Christine’s Diner. Walking through a grocery store with Rhonda was never a quick trip as you knew you were going to meet and be hugged by her long time customers. Funeral service will be held at 11am Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at McCalla Memorial Funeral Home with Reverend Josh Beane officiating.
